Hi all I own a construction co in central AZ and the work has completely dried up. Looking for a new start and a safe place to raise my family. All the Chamber of Commerce info points to huge growth in the area but I would like a locals perspective on it. Any info would be helpful including some of the better construction co to work for. Thank you.

Construction has really dried up in St. George, just like everywhere else. A few companies are still building in the 500K range but the market is for the smaller homes and townhouses in the 150-180K market. My old boss went from custom and semi-custom homes to the smaller ones to keep the guys busy until things pick up again. I wouldn't plan on moving here unless you can secure something ahead of time. The upside is that home prices are on the down side.

thanks for the info. St George seems to have a pro growth attitude. Our former town council/fourth reich had an anti-growth policy and shot down 2 land swap deals that would have added about 6000 buildable acres to our town not to mention throwing up road blocks for any developers trying to get a subdivision passed. Are there any companies that you would recomend over others.

I didn't get back on the forum for a while. It gets repetitive sometimes. Anyway, back to your question. St. George doesn't have any really big builders like Pulte, mostly small, family run companies. Some of the guys I used to work with have changed occupations or moved away and the company owners have pared down to skeleton crews until things pick up again.

Thanks for the reply. We had a last minute contract that pulled our butt out of the fire. Will keep us busy until the end of summer. Still might move up to SG at a later date very nice location. Good luck with work there.
