First Team Construction, Inc., one of the Lowcountry’s oldest and most trusted general contractors, today announced the relocation of its headquarters from their previous location in Summerville to just off of the Mark Clark Expressway in Charleston.

When asked about the company’s recent move to the Holy City, First Team Construction CEO David Johnson noted, “The majority of our residential and commercial clients are located in the urban and suburban areas of Charleston, Summerville and Mt. Pleasant, so this move just makes the most sense.”

Despite the economic downturn that many major metropolitans are continuing to face around the nation, Charleston is making substantial strides in its economic recovery efforts. In 2013, Charleston showed a considerable increase in new home construction, which has since spilled over into 2014, and industrial construction has been on a steady rise in the Palmetto Commerce Park area, as well as other major industrial areas, in the Charleston and North Charleston regions. There is also a projected increase of about 8% in apartment building construction in 2014—the largest such growth projected in the nation.

“There’s no denying that Charleston’s economic growth has been a motivating factor in our relocation,” added Mr. Johnson. “Our projects range from government building contracts, to new construction homes and all the way down to the smallest of home repairs, so this is a very strategic move for the growth of our company. But the main focus of this move isn’t about our growth as a company, it’s about our clients’ happiness. We have some of the most loyal clients in the area, so this is more about being there for them in a moments notice when they need us, because their happiness is what matters most to us.”
