According to Lampe, Nashville’s construction market will remain “hot” in 2022. “Generally speaking, every market sector has above average volume,” he says. Robust capital project budgets at the state and local levels are helping drive construction of public higher education, K-12 and other institutional facilities, Lampe says, with private higher education facilities also undertaking major expansions. At the same time, he says, “We’ll likely have to continue dealing with cost escalation and long delivery times for the foreseeable future.”
