When general contractors do not maintain transparency with developers, it can make the experience of building projects unpleasant, Jai Desai says. “When developers hear the word ‘change-order,’ they get scared,” he says.

Irving, Texas-based DDG Construction avoids instilling such fears.

Coyle Contracting Corp. entered the construction industry at an opportune time. Colm Morrissey founded the company as a New York contractor specializing in high-end interior commercial and residential work in 2011 just as the economy began to rebound.
