DWC Construction is Meeting
Infrastructure Challenges as Nashville Grows
Over our 75-year history at DWC Construction, we’ve seen a lot of change in Nashville and that trend isn’t slowing any time soon. Nashville was booming before the COVID-19 pandemic and it has returned stronger than ever. According to Nashville’s Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Ralph Schulz, the city’s growth rate was about three times the national average before the COVID-19 pandemic, and it continues to increase. Real estate software company Stessa’s 2021 report showed that Nashville’s metro area, with a population of nearly 2 million, was the #1 metro area for economic growth in 2021, and poised for continued growth throughout 2022. We are seeing over 130 monthly building permits per each 100,000 residents, increasing employment rates, and booming residential home sales.
Larger Firms Moving to Nashville
Like everyone else, we’ve been following the news about larger businesses moving to Nashville. There’s a lot of talk about companies moving from states that have created unfavorable conditions for businesses and their employees to states with a more business-friendly environment and better quality of life for their families. Texas usually comes up first in those conversations, but Tennessee is the second-most popular corporate relocation destination nationwide, and moving up fast.
In addition to Amazon, Oracle and Mitsubishi are bringing corporate offices and headquarters to Nashville. Kaiser Aluminum, which makes aerospace and custom automotive aluminum parts, is moving from Southern California to Franklin, Tennessee. All together, these new corporate headquarters and facilities are expected to add tens of thousands of jobs and a lot of economic opportunity.
A recent report from Stanford University showed that between 2018 and mid-2021, 25 California-headquartered companies moved from the Golden State to Tennessee, and two-thirds them have settled in the Nashville area. There are a lot of reasons for these moves, including the favorable business climate, but quality of life for employees, a strong labor market, and reasonable business regulations top the list.
Building and Renovating in Nashville and Middle Tennessee

Whether you’re locating in a vintage structure that needs interior refreshment and tenant improvements, or building new, we offer an unparalled dedication to customer service and will never compromise in meeting your goals for creating a great place to work.
Here are a few of the projects we’ve excelled in completing:
- Corporate headquarters

- Tech businesses
We’ve completed many successful, beautiful interiors in Nashville and Knoxville (our second location). If you’re moving your business to Nashville, we’d be glad to work with your architect or developer. We have award-winning local experience in commercial real estate development, and are able to make the job run smoothly. We’re also glad to help you to locate an architect here in the community, or present our design-build service to you. Don’t hesitate to contact us and request that we talk with your broker to locate an existing space for your office or corporate headquarters.
Design-Build in Nashville and Surrounding Communities
DWC Construction is a general contractor, providing general contracting services and construction management, as well as complete design-build services. If you’ve got a project with the right fit and scope, we offer start-to-finish design-build services. That means that the project can go a little faster than a team involving an outside design and architecture firm. With our experience in Nashville and also in completing successful design-build projects on-time and within budget, this could be an excellent choice for your corporate relocation or expansion project.
DWC Construction: Building Great Places to Work
Here in Music City, Nashville, we’ve been entertaining the world for many decades, just as DWC Construction has been building great interiors. A glance at our portfolio shows that we can create beautiful and functional vintage spaces, just as we can create the most modern and high-tech interiors. And, as we move forward into the next phase of Nashville’s growth and development, we can also offer you a team of highly-accomplished and motivated construction professionals. We have been named a top place to work by the Tennessean for the past four years in a row. So, when you bring your workforce to Tennessee into a space built by DWC Construction, they’ll be able to work in a space built by people who already live and work here, and love what they do. We look forward to working with you to build Nashville’s infrastructure … for the next 75 years and beyond.
