EMJ ranks #41 among Top Contractors in Giants Report

Building Design + Construction (BD+C) recently released its 2017 Giants Report, an annual ranking of the nation’s largest construction firms, and EMJ ranks #41 among the Top Contractors, climbing six spots from last year.
EMJ also ranks #53 among BD+C’s top CM Agent + PM Firms for our team’s work as a third-party construction management or program management consultant on large and often complex construction projects.
In addition to the overall rankings, BD+C classifies construction firms by revenue in individual sector. EMJ’s diverse portfolio of work is evident as the family of companies was ranked in five separate categories.
With nearly 50 years of history in retail construction, it’s no surprise that EMJ ranks #5 in the country in this sector. Large projects including Grand Parkway Marketplace728 Market Street and Waterside pushed our family of companies’ retail revenue to more than $287 million last year.
2018’s stats appear bright for this sector as well, as our team is currently constructing several large retail developments including Meadow Glen Mall in Medford, Mass., and Village of Waterside in Chattanooga, Tenn. See the full list of retail construction firm rankings here.

EMJ ranks #16 among the nation’s top hotel construction firms. In the past year, EMJ completed its largest project in corporation history, River Spirit Casino, along with a myriad of national hotel brands such as WoodSprings Suites and Home2 Suites. See the full list of hotel construction firm rankings here.

River Spirit Casino Resort, the largest project in EMJ Corporation history, helped bring EMJ to its position in hospitality.

Adaptive Reuse
In addition to these rankings, EMJ was mentioned in BD+C’s Retail Report for our adaptive reuse work and “conserving and reimagining historic structures” at Signal Mill .  EMJ has partnered with Hefferlin + Kronenberg Architects to repurpose the textile manufacturing facility into a development housing retail, restaurant and office space.

Signal Mill, a 34,560-square-foot “Knitting Mill” transformed into an urban, mixed-use retail, restaurant and office development.

Our rankings from last year were a great achievement, and this year, each of our rankings significantly improved from last year’s. Congratulations to all members of the family of companies for these impressive achievements.
