HDCCo on ENR's Top 400 List

50 years ago, HDCCo ranked number 70 on ENR’s first Top 400 list. This year, HDCCo is ranked number 84, and we are honored to be part of a small group of firms appearing on the FIRST Top 400 list and the FIFTIETH Top 400 list! Not many firms have been operating for as long as we have been, nor have they maintained such consistency!

In the accompanying article, HDCCo Vice President John Cowles is quoted: "We have noticed that many of our competitors are re-learning what we never forgot. Self-performing segments of work, such as concrete, site execution...is an important aspect of this industry. This helps develop field supervisory talent, such as superintendents, and provides keen insight into the construction process."
