Infrastructure and heavy highway construction in the Washington, D.C., area is an extremely competitive industry, particularly for the electrical contractors associated with it, but Laurel, Md.-based Chesapeake Electrical Systems Inc. (CES) has a key advantage, Vice President Tim Harlow says. “We’re a 100 percent union electrical contracting company,” he asserts. “As far as infrastructure and heavy highway are concerned, there is very little union competition.”

Since 1970, Bomel Construction has offered its expertise in cast-in-place concrete construction to a wide range of commercial and public clients across the western United States. Specializing in design/build parking structures, the firm has grown in both project scope and revenue to become a major player in California and Nevada. Based in Anaheim Hills, Calif., the company staffs satellite offices in Las Vegas; Carlsbad, Calif.; and Seattle to better serve its regional clients.

Contractor R&L Brosamer Inc. will resume its work on the reconstruction of a portion of Interstate 80 running through the Sierra Nevada Mountains in 2011. The Walnut Creek, Calif.-based heavy civil construction firm is working on one of eight concurrent construction projects launched by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) last year. R&L Brosamer’s project – valued at $56 million – involves reconstructing 3.6 miles of severely damaged westbound roadway and 6.1 miles of eastbound road.

R.H. Moore Company Inc. isn’t afraid to tackle difficult underground water and sewer excavation and installation jobs. “We specialize in large-diameter, deep excavations,” Vice President Kevin Moore says. “That’s what we try to pursue; it seems we excel at tougher jobs.” The Murrells Inlet, S.C.-based company is one of the largest underground utility contractors in South Carolina, serving its home state as well as North Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi.

As part of Gov. Mitch Daniel’s Major Moves road construction program, the Indiana Department of Trans­portation (INDOT) has embarked on the first phase of a $434 million, multi-year reconstruction project that will alleviate traffic congestion, improve safety and enhance mobility on the Indianapolis segment of Interstate 465.

Nearly five years after Hurricane Katrina, affected communities continue to rebuild in the aftermath of one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history. The Louisiana Department of Transportation is just one of the many agencies working to repair the damage caused by the hurricane.

It isn’t coincidence that CARCON Industries is one of the construction manager partners on three of the largest projects ongoing in northern Texas. The Dallas-based firm’s work is well-known and respected within its market. “Our general contractors really like us and value our work,” President and CEO Arcilia C. Acosta says. “We always strive to provide great service, and we’ve always worked side by side with clients, if they need something extra. People know we’re a smart, safe company.”

Ballenger Construction heavy equipment is a common sight along the bridges, highways and airport runways of South Texas. While the official founding of the company is generally documented as March 1937, the patriarch of the family, Joe Grover Ballenger, was using mule teams to move dirt back in the 1920s.
