December’s Starts Saved by Mega Engineering Projects ConstructConnect announced today that the latest month’s volume of construction starts, excluding residential work, was $34.0 billion (green shaded box, Table 3, below), -5.3% versus November’s figure of $35.9 billion (originally reported as $34.3 billion). December’s month-to-month decline was in line with usual ‘seasonality.’ Long-term, from the last full month of fall (November) to the month that kicks off winter (December), total nonresidential starts have fallen on average -5.0%. December’s drop would have been steeper without the support of several large engineering projects. Four mega projects (i.e., of $1.0 billion or more each) arose in the latest month, summing to $5.0 billion. Three of the four were heavy engineering jobs (see Top 10 Project Starts in the U.S. - December 2019).
Clichés are often true and it is the case that a picture can be worth a thousand words.

Proper construction lighting is a critical component to worksite safety, not unlike the equipment and gear used by workers. It improves nighttime visibility, making workers less prone to hazards in the evening, and also ensuring the safety of passersby in high-traffic zones.
