Savannah-based contractor makes No. 20 spot on National Multifamily Housing Council 2015 List of Nation’s Top 25 Largest General Contractors

ATLANTA—(April 22, 2015) This month, NorSouth Constructs earned national recognition by making the National Multifamily Housing Council’s 2015 NMHC 50 list, the annual ranking of the nation’s largest apartment owners, managers, contractors and developers. With 1,025 apartment units started for third parties in 2014, NorSouth Constructs was named one of largest general contractors in the country, earning the company the Top 20 spot.

NorSouth Constructs builds a diverse portfolio of multifamily communities, ranging from senior living apartments and affordable, high-quality homes for low-income families to sustainable and conventional building projects. NorSouth’s projects expand in areas outside of Georgia, including Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Florida and Texas.

The listing comes on the heels of a new study from the NMHC and National Apartment Association (NAA), which revealed the industry’s tremendous economic impact. Apartments and their residents contribute $1.3 trillion annually to the economy and support 12.3 million jobs nationwide.

NMHC partners with Kingsley Associates, a leading real estate research and consulting firm, for the NMHC 50’s research and analysis. Full rankings and detailed analyses are available online at
