Southeast City Scoop: Savannah Construction Starts
VP, Savannah Division Manager
JE Dunn Construction Group
While Savannah’s contracting figures from Dodge Data & Analytics paint a picture of a steady market, Price is more enthusiastic. “The pace of growth is very strong and possibly the strongest in the history of Savannah,” he says. For example, he notes, “The local school system continues funding new K-12 construction, and private development continues in large multifamily apartments, hospitality, warehousing and industrial manufacturing.” The higher-education sector and public projects also are adding to the mix, he adds.
