Industry Overview

The construction industry is facing new opportunities, along with significant challenges in the upcoming years. New practices in sustainable construction have arisen from the spate of high-profile natural disasters, with additional resiliency requirements being imposed. An uptick in federal infrastructure investment is expected to continue, in addition to projects spurred by new financing options and a loosening of regulatory oversight. A tight labor force will continue to encourage the adoption of technology and offsite construction in order to meet demand. Being prepared to leverage these opportunities will require being able to successfully navigate the new regulatory landscape—while safeguarding contracts and negotiations.
