Cox & Schepp Construction has moved up in the rankings ofEngineering News Record?s top 400 US contractors, hitting 319, up from 333 last year. Now marking its 10th anniversary, C&S employs 170 throughout the Southeast and is one of the most prolific builders on the local scene. We recently caught up with Jim Schepp, who founded the company with Andy Cox. He says C&S has begun placing more emphasis on healthcare and apartment projects to meet market demand. Jim predicts gross sales this year to top $200M, up from $160M last year. C&S?s growth stands out because it comes despite troubled times for most contractors.
