where walsh ranks this year

To All Walsh Group Employees,
Engineering News-Record compiles an annual set of lists that outline the top performing companies in a host of Architecture, Engineering, and Construction sectors. These lists have become an informal “scorecard of success” and their publication sets off a round of industry navel-gazing each year. Everyone says these lists don’t really matter, but, of course, everyone looks. We look, too, and we celebrate our leading position in our industry. On behalf of senior leadership and the Walsh family, we are pleased to announce that The Walsh Group achieved the following rankings in the 2008:
• 1st Largest Heavy Civil Contractor (US)
• 2nd Largest Highway Contractor (US)
• 2nd Largest Wastewater Treatment Builder (US)
• 3rd Largest Transportation Contractor (US)
• 4th Largest Builder of Water Supply Systems (US)
• 4th Largest Bridge Builder (US)
• 4th Largest Airport Builder (US)
• 4th Largest Mass Transit and Rail Builder (US)
• 5th Largest Sewage and Solid Waste Contractor (US)
• 8th Largest Builder of Water & Desalination Plants (US)
• 11th Largest Builder of Multi-Unit Residential Housing (US)
• 15th Largest National Contractor (US)
• 23th Largest Design Build Contractor (US)
• 26th Largest General Building Contractor (US)
• 28th Largest Contractor by New Contracts (US)
• 42nd Largest Green Contractor (US)
• 125th Largest Private Company (US)

It is important to remember that these lists measure volume, which is a narrow and incomplete indicator of success. Our position on these lists is not driven by a desire to be the biggest construction company, but to be the best in class construction company. Our performance is borne of a commitment to our core values: being the builder of choice; being the employer of choice; setting the highest standards for safety and quality; and achieving a fair balance of responsibility, profitability, and citizenship. If ENR published a list using these metrics or another that measured our increasingly good safety record, we would be at the top of those lists.
As we acknowledge these achievements, we know that we owe our success to you, the thousands of men and women who get up each morning and bring your best with you to work. We thank you for your hard work, and we look forward to working with you in the coming years.
