5 Guam contractors recognized as top performing US construction companies


Five Guam Contractors Association member companies were named to the Associated Builders and Contractors’ 2021 Top Performers lists, which recognizes ABC member contractors’ in safety, quality, diversity, project excellence, and special designations, ranked by work hours.

The five are Hensel Phelps, Black Construction, Landscape Management Systems Inc, Ian Corporation, and Agbayani Construction Corporation.

“These five companies consistently perform to the highest standards on Guam and the mainland,” said James Martinez, president, Guam Contractors Association. “They are world-class companies and some of the best examples of the construction industry on Guam. As the recovery of the Guam economy begins and the military build-up continues, these are the companies who will be leading.”

To be eligible, GCA members demonstrated world-class safety performance by achieving Gold status or higher in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System, which makes the top-performing contractors up to 655% safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average, according to the ABC 2021 Safety Performance Report (http://www.abc.org/spr).

The Top Performers were ranked by size based on the number of hours worked in 2019, as reported in their 2020 STEP applications. ABC members that earn the AQC credential certify their commitment to quality, safety, craft and management education, talent management, inclusion, diversity and equity, and community relations.
