Bergeron Land Development Named One of the Top 100 Contractors in Southeast by Engineering News-Record (ENR)

ENRFort Lauderdale, Fla. – Bergeron Land Development has announced that it has been named one of Engineering News-Record’s 2016 Top 100 contractors in the Southeast US. Bergeron placed 85th on the list which contained only nine other South Florida contractors. The annual Top Specialty Contractors list ranks the general contractors, both publicly and privately held, based on construction contracting-specific revenue. In 2015, Bergeron Land Development generated $42 million from general contracting, design-build, and construction management at-risk, as well as fees from program management and construction management.

Current or recent high-profile Bergeron Land Development projects include:

  • In partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Bergeron improved all aspects of Alton Road in Miami Beach, from roadway, landscaping and pedestrian areas, to drainage, water mains and installation of pump stations. All these efforts, in addition to the Bergeron’s work with the City of Miami Beach Pump Stations Project have one goal: To keep the City of Miami Beach above the rising waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The project was named 2016 Project of the Year (Category III) by the Cuban-American Association of Civil Engineers.
  •  In Sarasota County, Bergeron will widen 1.38 miles of SR 45A/Venice Bypass from Gulf Coast Blvd. to north of Bird Bay Drive to accommodate the ever increasing traffic of Florida’s west coast.
  • In Miami Beach, Bergeron will design, construct, and manage construction of a West Avenue vehicle bridge over Collins Canal to connect South Beach to the growing Sunset Harbour neighborhood.
  • In Palm Beach County, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) chose Bergeron Land Development to expand the Stormwater Treatment Area (STA-1W) in order to eliminate the need for the SFWMD to construct a new seepage canal and seepage pump station.
  • At Broward County’s Port Everglades, as part of the port’s Turning Notch Extension which will allow for up to five new cargo berths at Port Everglades, Bergeron replaced nine acres of an existing mangrove conservation easement with 17 acres of invasive trees and miscellaneous materials into a thriving mangrove wetlands area with a manatee access.

“At Bergeron, we focus on doing the right thing for our clients and that means meeting deadlines, meeting budgets, and exceeding expectations,” said Bergeron Land Development Founder and President Ronald M. Bergeron, Sr. “At Bergeron, we follow the mantra ‘Reputation before money.’ As a result, we’ve seen tour team secure larger and higher profile projects. Making this coveted list is just the icing on the cake and we look forward to placing even higher in 2017.”
