Like other areas in the Southeast, the Birmingham construction market “has been active and strong for several years,” says Watson. Notable projects include the 42,000-seat Protective Stadium and the renovation of Legacy Arena. That activity has largely continued throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. “Workers on the project site are still mobilized and working to meet our schedules while following additional protocols,” he says. At the same time, delays in materials delivery have become a common issue for area contractors.
