May-21 Apr-21 % Change
Dodge Momentum Index 178.0 163.2 9.1%
Commercial Building 202.3 175.2 15.5%
Institutional Building 148.0 148.4 -0.3%

Commercial planning saw its strongest month-to-month increase since October 2017.

Describing market conditions, Dodge Data & Analytics stated, “The rising trend in planning activity is a good sign that the economic recovery is starting to spread into the construction sector. However, these projects are unlikely to have an impact on construction starts this year. Rising material prices and a continued shortage of skilled labor have led to project delays. On the upside, construction starts are shaping up for a healthy increase in 2022.”
