Nashville, TN

Nashville is frequently described as a 21st century boomtown, and the city’s construction volume reflects this.

In a city that added almost 100 people each day to its population in 2017, it should come as no surprise that the residential sector is the largest here. The rise of e-commerce and remote work have kept commercial volume relatively constant as well, as these new residents can shop online and have goods shipped. Infrastructure spending remains relatively constant, as the city pivots to maintaining its existing roads and bridges instead of building new ones.

Nashville’s recovery has been making steady progress over the last year. Unemployment is within a few percentage points of 2019 levels, and construction employment has grown steadily throughout the pandemic. The next few years are likely to see a decline in overall volume as the market adjusts to new trends in work and leisure. There is, however, plenty to do now.
