A Sweet '16 for Construction? 


Webinar Date:
      January 12, 2016 at 1:30-3:00 pm ET


Public construction finally turned positive in 2015 after years of shrinking or stagnating. In addition, prices decreased for several key materials, enabling some agencies to get more for their dollar. There are hopeful signs the good news will continue in 2016, but there are also widespread concerns about availability of skilled workers. What should planners and project managers expect for this year? Ken Simonson, chief economist for AGC of America, will present the results of his members’ annual outlook survey along with his own forecasts.
