Leave it to Orleans Parish, which includes New Orleans, to choose the building that includes the kitchen as the first in the Orleans Parish Correctional Complex to construct. But a sound reason to choose the building first is that it also includes much of the infrastructure for the complex.

Although most construction firms that have a bonding capacity of at least $30 million are large companies, Construct Two Group (CTG) is a smaller operation. “Our everyday competition are the top-20 firms in the U.S. because we have a bonding capacity of $30 million,” Chairman Derrick Wallace notes. 

Throughout the Public Works Depart­ment (PWD) of Cattaraugus County, N.Y., employees share the goal of doing jobs right the first time, Deputy Commissioner Anthony Capito says. “[We are] very responsive to getting things accomplished,” he says. For example, when the PWD coped with a flood last August, its staff performed as needed. “Our employees, without question, just did what they had to do to keep our roads open and our departments functioning,” Capito recalls.

With 284 beds and 14 operating rooms on 10 floors – eight above grade and two below grade – the seven-year process to build the new San Francisco General Hospital is a complicated one. So general contractor Webcor Builders is maintaining close contact with the owner and architect, and is utilizing building information modeling to mitigate any problems with the help of the virtual world.

Akin to its name, Total-R Insulation Solutions strives to provide the best solutions for general contractors’ insulation needs, and as a result, has developed solid relationships within the construction industry, says John Trapp, founding partner. “We want to be the contractors’ first call for building envelope solutions,” he states. “We feel as if we are part of their staff, and it’s our responsibility to make sure their needs are taken care of.”

After more than 100 years, T.B. Penick & Sons Inc. has stayed strong by consistently performing “good, honest hard work,” Executive Vice President Greg Lee says. He notes that this has allowed the company to earn a great name for itself and create ongoing success.

Thirty years ago, Chip Marous, one of the three owners of Marous Brothers Construction in Willoughby, Ohio, didn’t imagine the firm he started with his brother Scott would be as big and diverse as it is today. “We’re determined and we like big goals,” he notes. “We thought that the sky was the limit and that we’d be big some day. We knew we wanted to grow the company.”

No longer do the church members at Northeast Christian Church in Louisville, Ky., have to squeeze in to attend one of the three worship services offered on Sundays. Nor do they have to figure out how to make the Children’s Ministry on campus more accessible and kid-friendly. Instead, they now have a new $15 million, 49,000-square-foot worship center, which seats more than 2,000 worshippers, instead of seating 900 in the former building.
