Tutor Perini Corporation
Tutor Perini Corporation (the "Company") is a leading civil and building construction company offering diversified general contracting and design-build services to private clients and public agencies throughout the world. We have provided construction services since 1894 and have established a strong reputation within our markets by executing large complex projects on time and within budget while adhering to strict quality control measures.
We offer general contracting, pre-construction planning and comprehensive project management services, including the planning and scheduling of the manpower, equipment, materials, and subcontractors required for a project. We also offer self-performed construction services including excavation, concrete forming and placement, steel erection, electrical and mechanical services, plumbing, and HVAC. We are known for our major complex building project commitments as well as our capacity to perform large and complex transportation and heavy civil construction for government agencies and private clients throughout the world.
Our Civil Group is comprised of the operations of Tutor Perini Corporation, Tutor-Saliba Corporation, Cherry Hill Construction, Inc., Lunda Construction Company, Frontier-Kemper Constructors, Black Construction, and Becho, Inc. and is engaged in public works construction throughout the U.S. and in Guam and the Western Pacific, including the repair, replacement, and reconstruction of public infrastructure such as highways, bridges, mass transit systems, and military infrastructure. We have been active in civil construction since 1894 and believe we are expert at managing large, complex civil construction projects. Our corporate integrity, financial strength, and outstanding record of performance on challenging civil works projects pre-qualifies us for projects in situations where smaller, less diversified contractors are unable to do so. This is a competitive advantage that makes us an attractive partner on the largest infrastructure projects and prestigious DBOM (design-build-operate-maintain) contracts, which combine the nation's top contractors with engineering firms, equipment manufacturers, and project development consultants in a competitive bid selection process to execute highly sophisticated public works projects.
Our Building Group is comprised of Tutor Perini Building Corp., Rudolph and Sletten, Inc., Perini Management Services, Inc. (PMSI), Roy Anderson Corp., Keating Building Corporation, and James A. Cummings, Inc. and focuses on large, complex projects in the hospitality and gaming, sports and entertainment, educational, transportation, and healthcare markets, as well as diversified construction and design-build services to the U.S. military and government agencies, surety companies, and multi-national corporations. We believe our success results from our proven philosophy, "Building Relationships on Trust," and our ability to manage large, complex projects with aggressive fast-track schedules, elaborate designs, and advanced systems while providing accurate budgeting and strict quality control. Although price is a key competitive factor, our strong reputation, long-standing customer relationships and significant level of repeat and referral business have enabled us to achieve our leading position. Our reputation for completing projects on time is a significant competitive advantage in the building market, as any delay in project completion may result in significant loss of revenues for the owner.
