Mar-22 Feb-22 % Change
Dodge Momentum Index 166.9 160.3 4.1%
Commercial Building 193.3 181.2 6.6%
Institutional Building 134.2 134.4 -0.1%

Describing market conditions Dodge Data & Analytics stated, “Commercial planning in March was just slightly lower than the all-time high set in October 2021. However, commercial planning has been much more volatile than institutional planning due to the presence, or absence, of large projects month-to-month. The institutional component has also been trending upward but remains 25% below the record set in December 2007. When compared to March 2021, the overall Momentum Index was 17% higher in March 2022. The institutional component was up 23% over the year, while the commercial component was 14% higher.”
