Barriere a Top Performing U.S. Construction Company for Third Consecutive Year

Last month Barriere received word that we are ranked as a 2022 Associated Builders and Contractors Top Performer – our third year in a row on the list after becoming an ABC Accredited Quality Contractor, which is a primary qualifier for this honor.

For four years, ABC has been publishing the Top 200 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 #56 in the nation and #31 on the Top 125 General Contractors list.

New to this year’s ranking are lists of top-performing companies in 18 market segments, and Barriere is #8 on the Top Infrastructure Contractors list!

Barriere is Louisiana’s largest asphalt producer and civil construction Contractor of Choice.

In addition to being an ABC AQC, Top Performers must also achieve a minimum of Gold status 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 demonstrate we prioritize the wellbeing of our employees and their families, sustain and grow our business, and cultivate committed industry leadership. At Barriere, we do this by upholding our Core Values as our Value Propositions – Partnership, Professionalism, Operational Excellence – guide implementation of our B Guarantee to safely and reliably deliver quality projects under budget and on time, every time. This is the Barriere Way!

“Congratulations to Barriere for raising the bar in developing people, winning work, and delivering that work safely, ethically, and profitably.” – Michael Bellaman, ABC President/CEO
