|HOCHTIEF Asia Pacific|
The HOCHTIEF Americas division brings together the activities of our four North American subsidiaries—Turner, Flatiron, E.E. Cruz, and Clark Builders. These companies provide building and infrastructure construction services primarily in the U.S. and Canada, each of them focusing on different aspects. Their activities span market segments such as public buildings, office properties, sports facilities, educational and healthcare properties, transportation infrastructure, hydroelectric power stations, and dams. Close cooperation between our companies in the North American market allows them to benefit from synergies as well as from a steady exchange of information and experience.
our companies’ proximity to markets as well as their focus on quality and results was once again recognized with numerous awards. Turner remains the U.S. number one general builder: In the 2016 rankings published by Engineering News-Record (ENR), the company continues to hold first place in commercial/industrial building construction. Overall, Turner is listed in more than 20 ENR categories, consolidating its top position in the markets for office, hotel, educational, healthcare, and entertainment properties as well as pharmaceutical construction. Turner is also the leader in the construction of green buildings, generating more than twice the sales of the company ranked second by ENR.
Our infrastructure specialist Flatiron is rated fifth in the ENR ranking for highway construction and eighth for the construction of transportation infrastructure and bridge projects. This puts Flatiron in a strong market position that is to be expanded still further.
Both Turner and Flatiron have in-house engineering units. In order to manage and minimize risks, the Turner Engineering Group and the Flatiron Technical Services Group act as competence centers on projects, preparing, reviewing, and optimizing planning as needed.
Turner is among the United States’ leading providers of virtual design and construction, also known as Building Information Modeling (BIM), as well as lean construction. 3) Almost every project makes use of BIM services.
