Construction Market Forecast Calls for 11% Jump in 2010

Gains in housing and public works will offset declines in commercial and manufacturing building — that was the big news coming out of McGraw-Hill Construction’s 71st annual Outlook 2010 Executive Conference held in mid-October in Washington, D.C. In its “2010 Construction Outlook,” McGraw Hill analysts forecast an increase in overall U.S. construction starts for next year. Due to improvement for housing from extremely low levels and broader expansion for public works, the level of construction starts in 2010 is expected to climb 11% to $466.2 billion, following the 25% decline predicted for 2009.  11/09
