Deep Roots. Strong

Crain Construction has helped raise Nashville from the ground up, and we’re proud of our legacy in the city. From the beginning, we’ve prioritized people over profits and community over competition, and you can see the difference in the structures we build. Every project starts with a strong foundation, and our bedrock is four generations of families committed to doing business differently.

General Contracting Services & Construction Management

We began as a family-owned company, and we’ve continued that commitment to family through our company culture. With over 100 years of combined industry experience, our all-Nashville-native Executive Team has been integrated in local commercial construction since childhood—many beginning in their youth digging ditches and pouring concrete. Several of our employees, as well as our subcontractors and clients, have been with us for decades. We attribute this loyalty to our people-first approach and our focus on deep, quality relationships.


We partner with organizations to invest, give back and make a positive impact on the communities where we live and work.
