Ogden, Utah, July 2019 – Engineering News Record (ENR) has selected R&O Construction as Contractor of the Year for it’s Intermountain Region. The region consists of Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. Each year, ENR’s national editorial team nominates and votes on a contractor based on exceptional projects, capabilities, initiatives, community engagement, sustainable building and reputation.

President Slade Opheikens expressed his gratitude, “This award recognizes the extra effort and commitment each of our employees make on a daily basis to ensure that our clients, our subcontractors and our projects are taken care of. This award recognizes and reinforces that focusing on relationships and our commitment to them is more important than being the largest or most well-known contractor. I want to thank each of our employees for their hard work. I want to thank each of our clients for the opportunities we have been blessed with. It is also crucial that I thank our subcontractors for being our partners on so many incredible projects.”

With projects across the Western US, R&O is a Utah-based general contractor with office locations in Salt Lake City, Utah and Las Vegas, Nevada. The firm specializes in municipal buildings, hospitality, senior-care buildings, manufacturing facilities, offices, retail, renovations and remodels, mixed-use developments and higher-education buildings, among its many project types. R&O Construction will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in January of 2020.
