Flatiron, with a construction volume of more than $1 billion, is one of the leading providers of transportation construction and civil engineering in North America. Its core competencies include major bridge, highway, and rail projects.
Named after the unique rock formations found near Boulder, Colo., Flatiron has grown from a small materials company to one of the largest transportation and infrastructure contractors in the nation. This growth began in the late 1980s when the company secured a series of contracts along Interstate 70 through the Glenwood Canyon Corridor, Colorado's most scenic stretch of interstate. Flatiron was recognized for its work on I-70 with awards that catapulted the company into national prominence.
With its reputation secured, Flatiron expanded into new markets in the years that followed. Flatiron opened two regional offices in California in the 1990s, and has since opened additional offices across the U.S. and Canada and completed projects in every region of the United States. Today, Flatiron is the 3rd largest bridge builder, 6th largest transportation contractor, and 5th largest highway contractor in the nation (ENR, Sept. 2010 and May 2011).
One of the company's core strengths is its ability to self perform a large portion of field work, providing optimal control over safety, cost, schedule, and quality. Additionally, our in-house engineers work closely with clients and field teams to create safe, cost-effective solutions with minimal environmental impact.
Flatiron offers a full range of construction and engineering services through various types of contracts such as design-build, construction management/general contractor (CM/GC), and public-private partnerships (PPPs). Already under way in Canada and emerging in the United States, PPPs enable public owners to accelerate project schedules by transferring the burden of financing, as well as operation and maintenance, to the private sector.
Flatiron is currently executing nearly $3 billion in Canadian PPP projects and can provide owners and concessionaires with design-build expertise on large and complex PPP construction projects here in the U.S.
