ConstructConnect Announces Spring Economic Webcast, The Post(?)-Pandemic Outlook for Design & Construction

Chief economists from ConstructConnect, The American Institute of Architects, and The Associated General Contractors of America to discuss the state of the construction industry. 

April 1, 2021 

CINCINNATI – ConstructConnect, a leading provider of construction information and technology solutions in North America, announced its Spring 2021 Economic Webcast, The Post(?)-Pandemic Outlook for Design & Construction. The complimentary webcast—featuring industry-leading chief economists Kermit Baker of The American Institute of Architects, Ken Simonson of The Associated General Contractors of America, and Alex Carrick of ConstructConnect—will take place at 2 p.m. EDT on ThursdayMay 6, 2021. 

Are we ready to look past the COVID-19 pandemic when it comes to design and construction in the United States? The concise answer may be: “It depends.”  

The economists will provide an in-depth analysis of where the construction industry stands one year into the coronavirus pandemic and where it’s headed now that vaccines have started rolling out and safety measurements start being lifted. 

Topics covered during the webcast include:    

  • An in-depth look at the latest construction starts and put-in-place forecasts from ConstructConnect. 
  • Where recovery stands in terms of design activity, and what that suggests for a construction upturn.  
  • An overview of the current top performing construction sectors. 
  • The most recent results from the AIA Consensus Construction Forecast. 
  • Soaring material costs and ongoing supply chain challenges facing the construction industry. 
  • Outlook for construction spending by project category.
