Post-Election Outlook for 2017 Design & Construction (Webcast)

November 17, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Economic Webcast

The economy has limped through much of 2016. Some analysts say uncertainty over the U.S. presidential and congressional elections has caused businesses and consumers to hold off committing to construction and other spending. Once the election is finally over, will construction get a bounce or fall into a sinkhole? What are the likely impacts on housing, private nonresidential investment, infrastructure and other public projects? Will labor availability ease or continue to plague many contractors? Are materials prices heading up, down or sideways?
