SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Remodeling Magazine has designated Allen Construction as the 11th largest full-service remodeler in the country in the magazine's 2015 Remodeling 550 report. The report was generated based on participating companies' 2014 remodeling revenues. (Note: Allen Construction income also includes revenue from constructing new homes, commercial projects and energy services.) Allen Construction was also selected to receive the Remodeling's Big50 designation, a special designation for companies that have achieved operational and financial excellence.
The Remodeling 550 covers four groups: 325 full-service companies, 150 replacement contractors, 20 insurance restoration firms, and 55 franchises.
The report also shares good news about the health of the remodeling industry. America's biggest full-service remodelers saw their revenues grow 14% last year and are looking for another 13% climb in 2015. There is even more good news about the health of the building industry as a whole; according to a recent report from the U.S. Commerce Department, U.S. home construction picked up in July at a rate of 0.2 percent, higher than previously estimated and the most since October 2007. The gain was led by single-family homes, the mainstay of the market.
Allen Construction has received four other major national and regional accolades this quarter. On July 15, Allen Construction's President, Bryan Henson, was named to Professional Remodeler Magazine's annual 40 under 40 list. On August 14, Allen Energy's Division Manager Shawn Jacobson was named to Pacific Coast Business Times' annual Who's Who in Clean Tech and Sustainability list. Allen was also graced with two Professional Remodeler Design Awards for their residential and commercial work during July. Their work was evaluated in 23 categories based on quality, design, problem solving, and creativity.
