NORCROSS, GA – Although the calendar says summer officially ended Sept. 23, design and construction industries have felt the effects of a 2-year-long fall. Some segments and regions appear ready to spring ahead, while others possibly face a long, cold winter. Register now to hear what three leading economic forecasters have to say about the climate for the construction trade. On Oct. 21, expert economists from Reed Construction Data, the Associated General Contractors of America and the American Institute of Architects join forces to host “After the Fall: When and Where Construction Will Rebound” – a webcast focused on key factors affecting the recovery of the construction industry.
The webcast will follow chief economists Jim Haughey, Ken Simonson and Kermit Baker as they discuss and analyze:
• In which geographic areas has the economy started to improve, and which areas will be next?
• What construction sectors are likely to see the most growth during the next upturn?
• When will the nonresidential building starts pipeline refill and lead to a pickup in jobsite activity?
• Will the November mid-term elections slow or speed the construction recovery?
• What has happened to Federal stimulus dollars and can contractors expect to see more?
Coverage includes analysis of existing market conditions and a detailed construction outlook analysis for upcoming months into 2011.
The webcast will be broadcast live starting at 2 p.m. (EDT). Registration is complimentary for all participants; pre-registration is required. Moderators will accept questions during the presentation from the internet audience and the webcast will also be archived for later viewing. Registrants may also receive 1.5 AIA CEU credits for attending this webcast.
