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. 

‘I founded Waugh Construction (Bahamas) Ltd. 45 years ago for the purpose of land clearing and road work on Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas,” says Harold “Sonny” Waugh, founder and president emeritus of Waugh Construction. “Today, I’m happy to say that we are not only clearing land and building roads in Grand Bahama Island, but also providing a full spectrum of civil construction services throughout the Bahamas. 

The Trevi Group believes strongly in establishing roots through its many foundation projects worldwide, as well as with its experienced personnel. The company’s recent acquisition of a South American contractor is a key step in its continued growth. Trevi acquired the Panama-based Galante S.A. in 2009, forming the company now known as Trevi Galante S.A.

Over the last 10 to 15 years, the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago has been home to a booming construction industry that has seen the development of significant projects in sectors such as energy, public, housing and commercial. Junior Sammy Group of Companies  – one of the leading contractors in the southern Caribbean Island – has been one of the main contributors to these developments, CEO Dave Aqui says. “We’ve provided services to all these sectors,” he notes. 

Deep Foundations Contractors Inc. (DFC) prides itself on the quality of work it performs for clients in Canada and elsewhere. The specialized foundation contractor has completed more than 3,000 projects in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean. 

The Larimer County Public Works Division (LCPWD) in Fort Collins, Colo., covers a lot of ground, literally. The 2,640-square-mile county – roughly the size of Delaware – is home to six cities and towns and has a population of 293,000. With its expansive rural areas that include Rocky Mountain National Park and urban areas that include Colorado State University, the LCPWD has a lot to keep it busy.
