Biggest U.S. Construction Companies to Watch in 2023

Across the globe, there are thousands of construction firms performing all types of construction projects, ranging from infrastructure to commercial, industrial, military, and residential work.

According to research, the global revenue of construction was $8.2 trillion in 2022 and is forecast to be nearly double that by 2030, at $14.4 trillion. In the U.S., construction work provided employment for almost eight million people by mid-2022, despite drastic construction inflation

While the largest construction firms in the country provide obvious valuable growth and progress, it should be noted that all construction companies - small, medium, and large - provide important jobs for American workers and families. In many ways, workers in construction are an important part of the backbone of growth and progress in the country.
