They don’t just build buildings. New Creation Builders builds relationships. “We’ve established a very good reputation over the years and we really try to build on our reputation,” says Jimmy Chung, vice president. ”At the end of the day, it’s about building relationships and trust with the clients.”

Bellflower, Calif.-based New Creation is a fully licensed general contractor in the greater Los Angeles area that specializes in commercial, residential and civic projects. The company believes that construction quality is measured by a client’s satisfaction with the completed project and operates on the basis that its reputation is on the line with each of those projects.

Founded in 1999 by Brian Chun, the company is comprised of architects, civil engineers and structural engineers. “The fact that we have a background in engineering and architecture really helps us foresee potential issues and problems in the design and construction,” Chung says. “I think that sets us apart.”

Experience can mean everything when it comes to a builder’s success on a project. T.W. Frierson (TWF) Contractor Inc.’s previous work helps it excel as it renovates and expands the distribution center of footwear-retailer Journeys in Lebanon, Tenn.

“In the mid-1980s, the company decided to focus on industrial and distribution facilities – so we are very experienced in this type of construction,” TWF Senior Project Manager Brent Edwards declares, noting that projects like this make the best use of its strengths: self performance of concrete  and tilt-up expertise.

As the specialist in manufacturing and erecting of precast concrete, Fabcon Precast is a leader when it comes to panel setting rates. However, the company is focused on continuous field improvements to increase its numbers.

Fabcon began its journey two years ago with the goal of doubling its setting rates. “What we are looking at is trying to improve upon how many wall panels we can set per crane-hour rented,” Continuous Improvement Specialist Angela Durant says. “We set our goals based on panel numbers versus buildings, which takes out the complexity because each building is vastly different than the next.”

White Builders feels a strong sense of purpose about each project it works on. “Our single greatest strength is that we believe what we do makes a difference,” says Marshall White, owner and president of the 40-year-old contractor based in Woburn, Mass.

“We are all shaped by the built environment, and we go into every project knowing that our work has an impact on the people who live and work in these spaces,” he adds. At the same time, the act of building is a collaborative, human endeavor and we hope to inspire the people we work with to realize their full potential.”
