Dec-21 Nov-21 % Change
Dodge Momentum Index 166.4 170.7 -2.5%
Commercial Building 196.7 203.9 -3.5%
Institutional Building 128.9 129.7 -0.6%

Despite the “sawtooth pattern” of activity seen throughout 2021, the index increased 23% for the year with the commercial and institutional components reaching 13 and 14-year highs respectively.

Describing the outlook for 2022, Dodge Data & Analytics stated, “The signals provided by the Dodge Momentum Index continue to suggest that construction activity will improve in 2022 — and, more importantly, that this growth will be more balanced than what was seen in 2021. However, the ever-present risks of the pandemic and tight labor force will work to counter these trends, leading to moderate growth over the new year.”
