Largest U.S. contractors based on contracting revenue 2018

With revenue figures of more than 18 billion U.S. dollars in 2017, Bechtel was ranked the leading construction contractor in the United States for the 20th consecutive year. In these rankings, the Fluor Corporation and the Turner Corporation were ranked second and third respectively, maintaining their positions from the previous year.

Bechtel bring their best

Based on a list of the top 400 contractors in the United States, ranking businesses based on revenue at home and internationally – the top 400 collectively generated around 374 billion U.S. dollars in contracting revenue in 2017. Bechtel was not only named overall top U.S. contractor, but also ranked first in the petroleum, transportation, and industrial sectors. However, the construction company ranked seventh in the list of contractors in the United States based on revenue from new contracts in 2017.

Bechtel has completed more than 25,000 projects in 160 countries since its foundation in 1898. They provide market expertise in many sectors, particularly transportation infrastructure – in recent years the company has landed contracts to build and modernize international airports in New York, London, and Qatar. Although figures are declining, key contracts like these led to Bechtel generating a global revenue of 25.5 billion U.S. dollars in 2018.
