Barriere named a Top Performing Construction Company for Fourth Consecutive Year

For the fourth consecutive year, Barriere is honored to be ranked as a 2023 Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Top Performer. 

For the last five years, ABC has published the Top Performers list as a supplement to Construction Executive magazine, ranking qualified commercial and industrial contractor members by size based on work hours. This year, Barriere came in at #57 on the Top 250 Performers List and #28 on the Top General Contractors list. The rankings also included the top-performing companies in 18 market segments, with Barriere coming in at #5 on the Top Infrastructure Contractors list.

Barriere is Louisiana’s largest asphalt producer and civil construction Contractor of Choice. Our value proposition differentiates us as a contractor, employer, and corporate citizen, demonstrating that we are stronger together and focused on our goal of being the best contractor to better serve communities and customers. These initiatives are what drive the Barriere Way and these rankings are a testament to our commitment to our communities throughout Louisiana and the Gulf South.

In addition to being an ABC Accredited Quality Contractor (AQC), Top Performers must also achieve Gold status or higher in ABC’s Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) program, the standard for developing world-class management systems in construction. Barriere consistently earns Diamond status, the highest STEP level possible.

Through AQC and STEP, Top Performers prioritize the wellbeing of employees and their families, sustain and grow their business, and cultivate committed industry leadership. At Barriere, we do this by upholding our Core Values to deliver quality projects safely and reliably, under budget and on time, every time. 

“Congratulations to Barriere for raising the bar in developing people, winning work, and delivering that work safely, ethically, and profitably,” said Michael Bellaman, ABC President/CEO. “We honor this top-performing contractor and all employees at Barriere who are placing the highest importance on investing in their people, health and safety, and innovation.”
