Power Design leapt from the number two spot last year to number one this year due to an increase in revenue from $141 million to $189 million. With more than 100 active projects across 18 states, a pattern of growth is evident and projected to increase this year. In addition to the top contractor accolade, Power Design was recognized for more than ten awards in 2013, including the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Best Places to Work, ENR’s Top Specialty Contractors, and EC&M’s Top 50 Electrical Contractors.
