Top 10 Largest Construction Project Starts in Canada and Trend Graph - September 2016
The accompanying table records the 10 largest construction project starts in Canada in September 2016. Also included is the latest trend graph on starts. This looks at 12-month moving totals of the two major nonresidential building categories in Canada − total ICI starts and engineering work. ICI stands for industrial, commercial and institutional.
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 jobsite work actually gets underway. And, as showcase projects, they highlight geographically where major construction projects are proceeding.
Also, 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 and square footage volumes. In other words, the timing and size of these projects have an exaggerated influence on market forecasts.
