Diversity helps contractors tap into minority communities to attract new workers. Thor Construction is able to keep its head above water while other contracts are quickly sinking thanks to an active grassroots recruitment effort.
Thor serves the entire U.S. ,with major offices in Minneapolis and Las Vegas. The contractor plans to increase its national footprint as a full-service self-performing concrete contractor, and to increase its volume by at least 25% within the next five years.
“Thor Construction launched its concrete division as a logical means of providing self-performing structural concrete services to better control project work schedules”, says Ravi Norman, CEO of Thor. “Since then, Thor has successfully established itself as a national self-preforming concrete subcontractor. The company poured 180,000 cubic yards of concrete in 2015.”
Key Thor self-preforming projects include T-Mobile Arena ($375 million), Mandalay Bay ($66 million), and U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
The contractor is a part of the Associated General Contractors, National Association of Minority Contractors, and the U.S. Green Building Council.
A diverse portfolio of self-performing concrete projects includes work across a wide spectrum, with a major emphasis on sports facilities and arenas, hospitality and gaming, mass transit, commercial buildings, factories, highways, and heavy infrastructure.
