In 2022, the overall results revealed company growth and market expansion within the construction industry and its key segments was fueled by several factors. One finding by a study group of industry veterans that included Gerry Salontai, CEO of Verdantas, showed that clients prefer to work with large and mid-sized firms because they see these firms in their local communities and rely on them to understand the local dynamics at play to get work done effectively.

These findings line up with the Verdantas culture and commitment to engage in meaningful collaboration with clients to foster positive impacts in the communities where we work.
