On Thursday, April 17, from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m., join Ken
Simonson of the Associated General Contractors of America, Kermit Baker of the American
Institute of Architects (AIA), and Bernard Markstein of Reed Construction Data
for insight into the outlook for 2014 construction:
- What are the
bright spots for non-residential construction?
- How does
employment compare to its peak?
- Which positions
are proving difficult to fill?
- Which trends are
helping construction growth?
- Will the Fed's
winding down of quantitative easing spike interest rates?
- Will housing
continue its upward trend or has it already run out of gas?
- Which regions
are showing the strongest growth?
- What risks and
wild cards can affect the upcoming season?
This complimentary broadcast is open to everyone. All who
can download the presentation slides and view the archived presentation, when
available after the live broadcast. AIA members who attend the live broadcast
are eligible to receive 1.5 AIA CEU credits. All three economists will take
questions from the audience in the last half hour of the live presentations.
