Commercial Building 206.2 198.1 4.1%
Institutional Building 133.3 142.1 -6.2%

“A new cyclical high in the Momentum Index is a sign that developers feel that projects still have hope of moving forward, despite concerns of an impending economic slowdown. However, this sentiment will be tested in the months to come as higher interest rates eat away at business and consumer confidence,” said Richard Branch, chief economist for Dodge Construction Network.”
