Across San Jose residents can observe a multitude of construction machinery piercing the skyline and humming on the surface streets. The large quantity of construction projects in the city means residents and San Jose commercial contractors alike now have a familiarity with the various heavy-duty equipment required for the large-scale construction projects that have come to characterize the dynamic of downtown. While your average citizen may not be able to name the complicated-looking machine on the edge of the development site that conveys rocks, cement, and sand to and from the site, professionals in the field have come to know it as essential belting technology.
Downtown San Jose is booming and is looking forward to several new development projects. The city has seen more large tech companies move into its downtown area, and anticipates there are even more to come. Along with the commercial sector growth, the city is also looking to boost its housing stock and is working to grow the number of residential units available to the city’s residents. All the new development and construction has meant the people in the construction industry are being kept busy, from architects and engineers to San Jose commercial concrete contractors. Two projects in particular are in the works that should bring new opportunities to area construction professionals: a mega office campus in downtown San Jose and eleven affordable housing developments spread across the city.
