A fourth-generation family owned business, the entire fourth generation is currently working in the business. The Worcester, Pa-company won the largest project in its history in 2016 – the $2.3 billion Transform I-66 project in Northern Virginia, along with joint venture partners Ferrovial. The firm also jumped to 105 on ENR’s Top 400 Contractors list after being ranked 115 the previous year.
As a self-performing contractor, Allan Myers has more than 2,000 craft and management professionals in the MidAtlantic region, a crucial resource for the firm as the labor force continues to tighten. The heavy civil contractor is also vertically integrated with quarries and asphalt plants. Much of the material they produce is used on their own projects, which gives the firm an edge in operational synergies, schedule, quality and cost. Since 2014, the firm has grown the amount of asphalt plants they operate by nearly 50% to 16 this year.
Allan Myers has six regional offices and is adding a seventh this year in Chesapeake, Va. along with a new asphalt plant on the same site.
