The Knoxville News Sentinel recently published a listing of the top 10 Knoxville-area general contractors ranked according to value of local billings. Merit Construction ranked top of the list, up from the number 3 spot in 2013.
Propelling Merit to the top of the list was the 2013 completion of the $40 million LeConte Event Center in Pigeon Forge. The newspaper also published a listing of the top 20 Knoxville-area building permits as ranked by value. Merit is responsible for the successful completion of the top three projects on that list: LeConte Event Center, Provision Center for Proton Therapy, and Greenback School.
