Construction Starts Down 3% | ENR: Engineering News Record | McGraw-Hill Construction: “Total construction starts through the first 10 months of this year are down 3% from the same period in 2009, according to McGraw-Hill Construction. A 12% decline in the nonresidential building markets and a 2% decline in heavy and highway work offset a modest 8% increase in homebuilding. The heavy and highway markets received a big boost in October with the start of five wind-power projects located in five different states and totaling $1.57 billion. The non-residential building market faced a setback in October when office-building starts declined 47% from the previous month, while the manufacturing plant category declined 60% from September’s starts. On the plus side, starts for school building rose 26%.”
