Growth Over Stability – Open Letter From Construction Data President Bill Black

I happened to be looking the other day at the most basic indicator of health in our industry, the Census Department’s data on the Value of Construction Put in Place. Looking only at Nonresidential Construction, the sector we serve, I  noted that the average value for the year so far is nicely up from last year, running at about 7.5% ahead. After three years of stability, where the dollar value stayed about the same, we now seem to be seeing real, sustainable growth in our industry.

It set me to wondering what the future might hold for all of us. Our customers continue to remain highly optimistic about the future prospects for their business, as do we. How about you? Is the new growth trend bringing good things for your business? Are you starting to see shortages of materials, necessary equipment or key personnel? What trends are you seeing in your local area?

We’re always interested in chatting, so fire off your thoughts.

Best,

Bill Black, President
