With the tagline “Building Tomorrow’s Infrastructure Today,” D’Onofrio General Contractors Corp. is the go-to contractor for complex marine structure and heavy infrastructure projects in the Northeast, specifically in the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

Sometimes, abandoned infrastructure projects litter the outskirts of major cities. Roads go from two- or four-lane highways to limited access interstates for a few miles, and then back to roads with traffic lights. Frequently, the reason the interstate didn’t keep going – or was never built in the first place – is public opposition.

As foreign marine contractors look more closely at the Caribbean Islands in search for work, Sean Herrera says Capital Signal Co. Ltd. benefits from its hometown advantage. Add to that a safety program more extensive than the average regional marine contractor; a locally-based equipment fleet that allows for quick, low-cost mobilization; a diverse staff comprised of engineers, professional mariners and other specialty personnel, and it’s fair to say that Capital Signal can hold its own even in shark-filled construction waters.

Nestled in the heart of the East Kootenay Rockies, New Dawn Developments has built a reputation based on its principles of quality workmanship, customer service and value, President Chad Jensen says. His father, Rick Jensen, founded the Cranbrook, British Columbia-based company in 1978.

A surface water treatment plant slated for completion by the end of 2011 is a major component of one Texas municipality’s long-term efforts to secure a steady water supply. Contractor Pepper-Lawson Construction broke ground on the $27 million plant in 2010, part of Missouri City, Texas’ overall $53 million surface water treatment and distribution program. The program is the largest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the city.

Founded in 2000 by President Jerry Blount, Mesa, Ariz.-based Blount Contracting Inc. quickly has become a leading provider of quality earthwork, paving and asphalt maintenance services in Arizona. Blount brought several years of experience to his new company and embarked on a mission to improve the way the construction industry in Arizona operated, explains his son, Vice President Randy Blount.

No matter the state of the economy, solid relationships are what make or break a contractor. When the number of available jobs shrinks, a previous history could be the difference between surviving a recession and watching the industry from the outside looking in. WELBRO Building Corp. has built its reputation on these relationships since its founding in 1979. The company has grown into one of the largest privately held general contractors in central Florida. 

The largest public works project in Los Angeles’ history continues to take shape. Crews are expanding the footprint of the Tom Bradley International Terminal at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as the $1.2 billion project enters its second year of construction. Walsh Austin Joint Venture, a union of contractors Walsh Construction and Austin Com­mercial, is serving as construction manager on the project, which broke ground in 2010. The project includes adding more than 1 million square feet to the existing facility by expanding the terminal and building two new concourses, Project Principal Joe Thompson says.
