Top 10 Featured Construction Projects in the U.S. - August 2016
The accompanying table records the top 10 featured construction projects in the U.S. for August 2016.
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.
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.

*ConstructConnect™ merges four legacy companies. As part of the data integration process, ConstructConnect™ is moving from an estimated start date (i.e., 30-60 days after bid date) for each project to an assigned start date. The transition will be complete by the end of 2016. Until then, the above Table will highlight featured projects rather than Top 10 starts.
