The list, which was published in the November/December 2018 issue based on 2017 revenue figures, was compiled through voluntary submissions from the country’s top contractors. It portrays an industry that showed relatively steady growth from 2015, the last figures that Construction & Demolition Recycling reported when it published the list in the November/December 2016 issue.
