Seven Utah-based commercial contractors make Engineering News Record's (ENR) Top 400 Contractors in the United States list.

The Top 400 List, released May 17, includes Okland Construction at 56, Layton Construction at 63, followed by Big-D, Jacobsen Construction, Clyde Companies, R&O Construction and Wadman Corp. on the list as well.

The cumulative revenues of the seven Utah contractors fell dramatically from $3.75 billion (a record high) in 2008 to $3.11 billion in 2009, a 21 percent decrease during the one-year period.

According to ENR senior editor Gary J. Tulacz, "Of last year's Top 100, nine contractors saw revenues increase, 88 had lower revenue, and three did not particpate in the survey."

Okland, Jacobsen and Big-D are the primary contractors on the downtown Salt Lake City Creek development project, a $1.5 billion project developed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
