The Costa Rican company Constructora Meco ranks 18 of the 50 largest construction companies in the Latin American region.
The ranking is based on gross sales revenue and is supplemented by data available in stock markets and superintendents, audited accounts, corporate statements and respected expert organizations in the field.
