North Carolina is a promising state for MDU builders, thanks to several thriving urban hubs like Charlotte, Raleigh, and Greensboro—all of which have significant tech and university sectors driving the need for multi-family dwelling units.

In the last several years, North Carolina has made a concerted effort to increase its energy conservation, based on standards from the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code. Consequently, new state standards have had a notable impact on North Carolina MDU construction and development, particularly where townhouses are concerned.

Some of the new compliance measures for North Carolina MDU developers include:

Utilizing LED lights in new construction

Installing low-flow showerheads, faucets, and aerators

HVAC retrofitting that meets standards set by the National Electric Manufacturers Association

North Carolina is a growing state, and it has three main areas of urban development that are perfect for MDU developers, particularly as the tech sector continues to thrive. Focusing work here can prove to be very beneficial for North Carolina MDU construction and retrofitters:

Metrolina: Charlotte–Gastonia–Salisbury

The Triangle: Raleigh–Durham–Chapel Hill (this is also home to the legendary college triad of Duke, the University of North Carolina, and North Carolina State)

The Triad: Greensboro–Winston-Salem–High Point
