Nashville’s centralized location is unequaled for distribution and warehousing and comes complete with competitive and affordable transportation costs. Carden Company is proud to be a leader in distribution-center and warehouse construction in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.
Nashville Is Strategically Located for Efficient Supply Chain Management
Nashville is well known as “Music City,” but a vibrant corporate business climate has also generated a diverse regional economy. For example, CNBC ranks Tennessee 2 in infrastructure ranking, 6 is business friendliness, 10 for the lowest cost of doing business. Plus metropolitan Nashville ranks #7 on Forbes’ list of Top 25 Fastest-Growing Cities of 2018 and #8 of the Milken Institute Index of Best Performing Cities.
Carden Company Distribution Building Contractor Expertise
Carden Company with its 45 years of experience as a leading design-build general contractor, has a long and successful history with the construction of distribution centers.
Distribution-center construction, or warehouse construction, can be one of the more challenging projects a construction company can encounter. First, the site needs to be optimized by way of analyzing logistics, infrastructure, transportation, and work-force, while reducing the effect of site-access, fire codes, drainage, power requirements and minimizing square foot costs.
Second, efficient operations are accomplished by designing and building a facility that is a highly productive environment for employees. The objective is to build the best possible flow and set up for each client’s products – no two projects are ever the same.
The result is Nashville has increasingly become a strategic manufacturing, distribution, and supply center:
