Building the Music City

Choate Construction and Nashville’s roots are deeply intertwined, harkening back to the days of Millard Choate’s childhood and the experiences of working on his family’s Nashville farm and his days as a Vanderbilt undergrad.

Fast forward, Choate’s presence in the Music City continues to expand, capitalizing on longstanding market relationships and a track record of successful projects. From automotive to institutional, corporate to industrial and everything in between, our team serves the Nashville expanding market with dedication and excellence.

This dedication and excellence continue to translate into our OneLife safety identity and program, resulting in the recognition of Choate as the Nation’s Safest Contractor by The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).

A Diverse Tennessee Portfolio

Choate has been constructing in the Volunteer State for over 20 years, beginning with a Georgia Pacific distribution center.

Experience throughout Tennessee has since included Hendrick Automotive dealerships, multi-family with the skyline stunners Icon in the Gulch and Rhythm at Music Row, corporate spaces like LKQ and Comcast, and exciting restaurants and retail like Superica and Crate & Barrel.

The Binding Agent

No matter the office, behind Choate’s powerful tools and technologies are what binds our company together: our people.

Being 100% employee owned, Choate’s Nashville staff are more than figurative partners; we have a personal stake in the financial success and future of this company — meaning everything is a little more motivated and a lot more personal.


Choate is known for building incredible structures and spaces, but what we are equally proud of is our ability to build beyond construction.

Cultures and communities define our lives and are elements held dearly at Choate. After all, life is more than a paycheck or a project completion. From leadership development to employee owner tenure celebrations, training to our beloved FUN committee, Choate actively works to preserve the culture our company is built upon.

The desire to build communities and philanthropic engagement is also woven into the fabric of Choate. From companywide philanthropic initiatives to local, community-centered support, Choate is raising the philanthropic bar. On an individual level, matching gifts and paid-time-off voluntarism programs allow us to support what’s personally meaningful to our employee owners.
