Flatiron Construction Corp.
www.flatironcorp.com  
Years in business: 64
Location: Firestone
CEO: Tom Rademacher (Watch an interview on ColoradoBiz TV.)
Employees: 250
Company snapshot:
With a construction volume of more than $1 billion, Flatiron is one of the leading providers of transportation construction and civil engineering in North America. Its core competencies include major bridge, highway and rail projects. Flatiron's projects have been recognized by some of the construction industry's top owners, associations, organizations and publications the past two decades.
Notable practices: As a testament to the company's safety commitment, Flatiron worked more than 5 million man-hours in 2010 without a single lost-time incident - an achievement nearly unheard of in the heavy civil construction industry. Flatiron is 75 percent below industry average for recordable and lost-time incidents.
Community involvement: Flatiron has partnered with Bridges to Prosperity to provide citizens in isolated Central American communities access to essential health care, education and economic opportunities by building footbridges over impassable rivers. Flatiron also works with Colorado elementary schools in math, engineering and science achievement programs, called "MESA," designed to increase the number of economically disadvantaged and underrepresented students studying engineering, mathematics and science in college.
