Shopping centers, hotels, office buildings, medical buildings, educational buildings, government buildings, industrial projects, oil and gas projects, and electric power and telecommunications projects will all be covered on a rotating basis.

There are several reasons for highlighting upcoming large projects. Such jobs have often received a fair amount of media coverage. Therefore, people in the industry are on the lookout for when job-site work actually gets underway. And, as showcase projects, they highlight geographically where major construction projects are proceeding.

Finally, total construction activity is comprised of many small- and medium-sized projects and a limited number of large developments. But the largest projects, simply by their nature, can dramatically affect total dollar volumes. In other words, the timing and size of these projects have an exaggerated influence on market forecasts.

  1. Canadian LNG projects are losing out to US, African and PNG LNG projects.
    To succeed Canadian “LNG off-take” has to be integrated into the projects i.e. e.g. the major use of LNG is for power generation … the developers / investors with Gov. assistance should partner with those third world businesses / utilities and their local Gov. in Pakistan, India, or China, Africa etc and i.e. GE and offer turnkey Co. Gen. packages. So when LNG is produced … it has a partner as a buyer.
    The current Canadian LNG development is not going anywhere.
