Economic Development Construction Showcase
Nearly a decade after the Great Recession stalled construction nationwide, the industry has roared back: In 43 states, construction is now contributing more to the economy than it did in 2010, creating a demand for skilled workers and transforming skylines from Boston to Oklahoma City. That’s a major issue to resolve, considering in a 2015 survey by the AGC, 86 percent of respondents reported having trouble filling available positions, up from 81 percent in 2013.
Overall, the construction industry’s impact on U.S. gross domestic product has grown by more than 21 percent since its low point in 2011, according to a Stateline analysis of inflation-adjusted data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.
This year, construction’s contribution to the U.S. economy soared above $700 billion for the first time since 2008 (source: St. Louis Federal Reserve). Many construction firm leaders expect that ultimately, nonresidential construction spending will begin to climb as the new administration in Washington begins to implement its pro-business agenda.
Capital expenditure makes businesses leaner, more efficient and drives huge economic development benefits from job creation to tax revenue generation. Investing in tangible growth like this is a sign of commitment to employees and local regions alike.
This section provides a platform for firms across a multitude of industries to highlight the capital investment they are making in the nation’s future.
