Local Firms Named Among Nation’s Top Contractors

Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, and Stellar Energy, a global provider of energy plant solutions, have been ranked as the nation’s top contractors in six market categories by Engineering News-Record (ENR), the construction industry’s leading trade publication. Stellar and Stellar Energy’s headquarters are located in Mandarin.

ENR’s Top 400 Contractors list ranks the country’s top general contractors, both publicly and privately held, based on construction contracting-specific revenue. On the overall list, Stellar ranked 118th of 400, up three spots from 2013. Stellar’s rankings in the breakout categories include:

●       Top Contractors in Manufacturing, Telecom
○       No. 1, Food and Beverage
○       No. 14, Industrial Process

○       No. 12 (Distribution, Warehouse)

Stellar Energy’s rankings are:

○       No. 6, Co-generation
○       No. 49, Power

While these rankings further solidify the Jacksonville-headquartered firm’s leadership nationally, Stellar also has a strong local division, building numerous facilities in Northeast Florida such as the Jacksonville Zoo, Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church and the Bestbet Gaming Facility, among others.

Stellar also has a strong commitment to the Jacksonville community, supporting local charities such as K9s for Warriors, the Sulzbacher Center and Community Connections. The firm also supports education with its University of North Florida scholarship and recent contributions to the FSCJ Criminal Justice Center Cadet Program.
