Top NC Contractors List: Edifice’s Significant Jump
CHARLOTTE, NC Charlotte-based Edifice Inc. has once again been ranked among North Carolina’s Top general Contractors. Published by Business North Carolina the list ranks companies based on 12 months of revenue ending June 2012.
This year Edifice caught the attention of Business North Carolina’s Eric Dunn, sighting the company as “recording the highest leap in revenue — more than 76%,” during this 12-month period. Edifice CEO, Eric Laster commented on the drastic jump signifying the start of work on several large projects as the reason for the jump.
“We’re in a situation where there are more contractors than there are projects to build,” Laster says. “The competition is very keen.”
Edifice has seen improvements in light-manufacturing construction, including a contract for a $50 million expansion of Spokane, Wash.-based Clearwater Paper Corp.’s tissue-making plant in Shelby. In addition, the company is working on large church expansions in Charlotte and High Point.
Edifice continues to excel with a diverse portfolio including projects in retail, entertainment, civic and education, to upscale interiors, industrial, faith-based and federal projects.
