It’s true, everything is bigger in Texas – including the construction industry! Since January 2019, the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex has seen a rapid increase in new commercial and residential construction projects. In turn, Texas has seen a growing demand for skilled workers at commercial construction companies like our very own – Polk Mechanical Company.
With over $10 billion in construction starts in the first half of 2019, the DFW area claimed its title as the second most active construction market in the US. DFW’s total building activity was outnumbered by only one other state – New York City, who had a total of $20.3 billion construction starts – 6% less than the amount from the same period last year.
Securing another industry achievement for Texas was its largest city, Houston. Houston came in fourth place with $8.5 billion in construction starts. With two Texas cities ranked in the top 5 for the highest number of commercial construction companyprojects, it’s safe to say that there is no shortage of construction work in DFW across all trades.
Polk Mechanical Company is one of the fastest growing commercial construction companies in Texas and offers abundant opportunities for all trades. With locations in both Houston and DFW, Polk is strategically located in the heart of the most active construction markets across the country.
It’s a great time to be in search of construction work in Texas. Not only are the number of construction projects booming, but also the number of jobs! Currently, Texas tops the nation in construction job growth. Since July 2018, Texas has added over 48,400 jobs in the industry!
