Savannah’s construction market is “robust and continues to grow,” says Price. The volume of Savannah building permits grew by more than 40% in 2016, and 2017 is on track to exceed that total, he says. “Multiple 1% special purchase local option sales tax receipts are driving city, county and public school building and infrastructure projects,” he adds, noting funding of about $400 million for school construction and renovation projects during the next five years. “We are bullish on continued growth in market conditions.”
