Catamount Constructors, Inc., a 100% employee-owned ENR Top 400 Contractor, is expanding its national industrial footprint with two additional office openings: a new office location in Tampa, Florida, and a return to Savannah, Georgia. With over 26 years of construction experience, Catamount is a top national industrial general contractor. Currently maintaining offices in Denver, Colorado; Atlanta, Georgia; and San Antonio, Texas, Catamount will be opening these new office locations by May 2023.
Catamount is a national leader in industrial construction with over 500 industrial projects completed, valued at $4 billion across 36 states. Catamount remains focused on being solution- and partner-oriented, listening to client needs and pivoting strategy accordingly. The team demonstrates responsiveness and creative thinking to grow amidst economic conditions.
“These office expansions will allow us to better serve and grow existing client partnerships, as well as establish a local presence to expand new client relationships. We have demonstrated success nationwide, including Savannah and Florida, and are looking forward to our new offices allowing us to help our clients capitalize on this explosive industrial growth,” Scott Reynolds, Catamount’s national Industrial Division president, commented.
Stephanie Martinez, vice president of Industrial at Catamount, will oversee the new Tampa Bay office. Starting with Catamount in 2012, Stephanie has developed significant long-term relationships with major national industrial clients. Her strong background in project management and program development has continued to build Catamount’s industrial portfolio over the last decade. She works closely with other executives to grow the company’s industrial expertise with existing and new clients nationwide. Her expertise in adapting to clients’ needs will allow her to seamlessly transition her existing and new team members to serve clients across Florida.
Stephanie remarked, “The expansion of seaports along the Southeast coast allows for an increase in imports and exports, which in turn creates a high demand for industrial space to package, sort, or distribute. Tampa Bay experienced back-to-back
years of record-breaking levels of deliveries and the market has 20-year low vacancy rates. Fort Myers, Miami, and Jacksonville are experiencing vacancy rates between 0.5-2%. Our team is well posed to respond to our clients’ needs in the larger Florida
Chris Copeland, vice president of Industrial at Catamount, will oversee the Savannah office. With over 18 years of experience in the industry working with industrial clients nationwide, Chris will lead this office engagement as a seasoned professional. He demonstrates unparalleled responsiveness to client demands with strong attention to detail and exceptional planning skills. Chris works closely with other Catamount executives to grow the company’s expertise across build-to-suit, spec warehouse, cold storage, and other industrial project types.
“We are excited to return to the Savannah market, where our existing clients are already active and where new clients are looking to continue building on this booming industrial demand. With the lowest vacancy rate in the country and an almost 30% increase in demand last year, Catamount is well posed to help our clients grow their presence and respond to these significant industrial needs in the Savannah area,” Chris noted.
