Landis Construction Honored as 2023 Top-Performing U.S. Construction Contractor by ABC

March 7, 2023 — New Orleans-based Landis Construction was ranked in Associated Builders and Contractors’ (ABC) fifth annual Top Performers publication, which lists its contractor members that build the country’s most enduring, innovative, high-quality construction projects, ranked by work hours.  

As an ABC Top Performer, Landis achieved Gold status or higher in ABC’s STEP Safety Management System, which makes the top-performing contractors more than six times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average, according to ABC’s Safety Performance Report. The majority of the honorees also must earn ABC’s Accredited Quality Contractor credential, which recognizes commitment to corporate responsibility in quality, safety, talent management—including inclusion, diversity and equity—education and community relations. 

“Since the company’s founding over 65 years ago, we have always strived for excellence for both our clients and surrounding community through a commitment to communication, collaboration, and trust,” said Landis Construction CEO Anne Teague Landis. “At Landis, saying that we ‘build our business by building lasting relationships’ is more than just a tagline, and this national recognition from ABC is a testament to that. We’re honored to have once again made their list of Top Performers for 2023.”

Prior to receiving this recognition, Landis was also the proud recipient of a 2022 Excellence in Construction®Award from the ABC New Orleans/Bayou Chapter for its repairs of the iconic Saenger Theatre in downtown New Orleans.

“Landis Construction invests in and attributes its successes to its people, and its value proposition gives their employees purpose, delivers quality to their clients and strengthens their bottom line,” said Michael Bellaman, president and chief executive officer of ABC. “Congratulations to the team at Landis for raising the bar in developing people, winning work and delivering that work safely, ethically and profitably.”

Through STEP, AQC and other robust programs, Landis demonstrates its ability to:

  • Sustain and grow its businesses, financially and economically
  • Offer market-competitive compensation, benefit and retirement packages
  • Commit to world-class safety
  • Commit to workforce development, education and creating career opportunities
  • Commit to an inclusive and diverse work environment
  • Develop opportunities for their employees to achieve its career dreams
  • Cultivate committed leadership

The ABC Top Performers lists identify the Top 250 Performers, Top General Contractors, Top Trade Contractors, Top Electrical Contractors, Top Plumbing/HVAC Contractors, Top Specialty Contractors and Top Performers by Market, all of which have earned the elite Accredited Quality Contractor credential. The Top Performers with Special Designations hold one or more special designations. The Top Performers were ranked by the number of hours worked in 2021, as reported in their 2022 STEP applications. The rankings also include lists of top-performing companies in 18 market segments, such as government, health care, infrastructure, military, retail, religious, high tech, airport and sports complexes.
