Is your company among the biggest and the best? Find out when ABC publishes the ABC Top Performers lists to recognize member contractors’ achievements in safety, quality, diversity,
project excellence, federal designations and revenue, ranked by work hours. 

The Top Performers lists will be published as a supplement to 
Construction Executive magazine in May 2019.

“ABC is constantly seeking new ways to deliver value and help our members win work,
and we are proud to announce the debut of this new industry resource,” said ABC President and CEO Michael D. Bellaman. “This elegant publication honors the best of the best in merit shop construction by raising awareness of their achievements among 
CE’s 55,000 subscribers and beyond.”

Three separate lists identify the 150 Top Performers, Top 50 Performers With Special Designations and Top 20 Performers by Region. The companies are ranked by size based on the number of hours worked in 2017 as reported in their ABC Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) applications.

What defines the best of the best? To make the cut, Top Performers must demonstrate world-class safety performance by achieving STEP Gold, Platinum or Diamond. STEP is a self-evaluation against a world-class safety management system designed and annually enhanced by the ABC Safety and Health Committee. ABC Top Performers are on average 260 percent to 680 percent safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. The impact of participating in STEP on overall safety performance is documented in the annual ABC Safety Performance Report.

The listings highlight contractors that have earned ABC’s Accredited Quality Contractor (AQC) credential for their commitment to corporate responsibility in quality, safety, talent management, education, community relations and diversity; those that won national Excellence in Construction,® Safety Excellence and Diversity Excellence awards; and those that hold designations awarded to diverse companies to help procure work from government and private entities.
