Three Baton Rouge contractors rank among nation’s top five in performance


Three Baton Rouge-based companies made the top five on Associated Builders and Contractors’ annual Top Performance list, a ranking of its commercial and industrial contractor members.

Once again, Turner Industries topped ABC’s list for top performer by work hours, with Brown & Root Industrial Services ranking second and Performance Contractors ranking fifth.

Turner was also named the overall best general contractor and best industrial sector contractor.

To be eligible for the list, businesses had to achieve gold status or higher in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System, which has stricter safety requirements than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average, according to ABC’s Safety Performance Report.

The rankings are calculated based on how well the businesses sustain and grow their companies, offer market-competitive compensation, as well as their commitment to safety, workforce development and diversity.
