Also according to ENR, Clayco now holds the No. 16 position among the nation’s leading design-builders in terms of revenues, moving up five positions from the 2010 rankings.

In 2010, Clayco reported revenues of $880 million. The top 100 design-build firms were listed in ENR’s June 6, 2011 issue. In 2010, Clayco reported design-build revenues of $836 million.

ENR reports that contractors are focusing on diversification, smart bidding and supporting project financing, practices that play instrumental roles in Clayco’s projects, according to Clayco Chairman and CEO Bob Clark. He also states that Clayco has been able to rely on its reputation for innovative project solutions to successfully leverage existing relationships and continually add to its client list.

“Our growth and success can be credited to our versatility and our adaptation to changes within the industry,” said Clark. “We remain focused on our core competencies while making significant pushes in new areas. For instance, our suburban Chicago office has had 10 years of success, and we are augmenting it with a major presence now in downtown Chicago.”

Clayco’s major projects in 2010 included completion of a two-phase redevelopment project on 40 acres of Washington University’s Danforth Campus in St. Louis, Mo., a regional distribution center for 3M in DeKalb, Ill., and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications Petascale Computing Facility (PCF) for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Other major projects currently underway include a $130 million addition to BJC’s Missouri Baptist Medical Center in St. Louis, Mo., a $70 million office and data center for Express Scripts in St. Louis, Mo., a hydraulic excavator plant for Caterpillar in Victoria, Texas, and a $150 million electric-car battery plant for Dow Kokam in Midland, Mich.
