Heath Cahoon Named Director of Preconstruction – Choate Nashville

February 11, 2020

Congratulations to Heath Cahoon on his promotion to Director of Preconstruction in Choate’s Nashville office! Formerly a part of the preconstruction team in Choate Charleston, Heath will now oversee the preconstruction department and all estimating services for Choate Nashville.

One could say construction is in Heath’s blood; his father worked for a general contractor, allowing Heath to see a variety of construction projects across the nation as he grew up.  After attending Coastal Carolina University where he studied computer science and mechanical engineering, Heath joined his father for 10 years at Chancel Construction where he credits his dad with laying the foundation for his future success in preconstruction.

Heath joined Choate in 2016, where he provided preconstruction services on a variety of projects across the Lowcountry such as the South Carolina Ports Authority Headquarters, Foundry Point Apartments, the Samuel Adams Brewhouse at Charleston International Airport, and Hudson Nissan.

But one project stands out. Or should we say projects – plural! “The eight concurrent projects on Kiawah Island have been so rewarding to work on.  From the five-star resort to the conference center, sanctuary chapel to the clubhouse – and even the laundry facility! – it has been such an opportunity to see a colossal vision come to reality.”

Heath’s relocation to Nashville marks another exciting chapter.

“I could not be more thrilled to continue Choate’s legacy of servant leadership here in the Music City,” says Heath. “We are ready to serve the Nashville market with collaborative, proactive service that utilizes both the powerful tools and personal dedication Choate is known for. We will ensure smart, solid, and accurate foundations are laid for our clients long before construction begins.”

When Heath isn’t working, you may find him in his garage honing his carpentry skills or with wife Jade and their two children. Heath is also a champion to find a cure for cystic fibrosis, having been named a Greenville Finest Honoree by the CF Foundation for his exemplary fundraising efforts.

Whether at work, home, or anywhere else, Heath bleeds black and gold. “I’ll be at Choate until they kick me out,” Heath chimes in with a smile. “I love this company.”

Congratulations Heath!
