How Will the New Administration and Aging Generations Impact U.S. Construction?

Chief Economist Alex Carrick has been providing the construction industry with economic and forecast data for over 30 years. We interviewed him to learn what someone with his experience and background thought about the construction industry, economy and more.

We had a great time during the interview and covered a lot of ground, including the U.S. economy, the performance of construction by sector and by region, key trends in the marketplace, and Canada's economy and construction industry.

  1. U.S. Economy Outlook: In one of the longest expansions in U.S. history, should we prepare for a recession or are we in a new era of continued growth?
  2. U.S. Construction Outlook: Alex shares thoughts on residential, commercial, institutional and civil construction including the rise of urban markets, low vacancy of office buildings and the importance of soft and hard infrastructure for continued growth.
