Practice Groups Construction

The U.S. Construction industry is pegged to experience annual growth over the next several years – from $1 trillion in 2014 to $1.1 trillion in 2019.* There are a number of factors driving this growth, including investments to modernize the country’s aging infrastructure and in the renewable energy sector along with a growing population and the resulting demand for expansion in residential construction. Commercial construction is also a contributing factor to the industry’s growth due to improved economic conditions, an increase in consumer spending, and government investment in tourism, office, and retail buildings in the next four to five years.

While the Construction industry has rebounded, challenges remain. The majority of operations continue to face a large share of losses that require the experience and expertise needed to drive down costs, minimize risks, and utilize capital more effectively.
