Triangle Construction’s Good News
March 21, 2013 Leave a comment
Housing and construction has been in the news a lot over the past few days. And this news has been positive.
The news substantiates discussions I have been having with those I know in the construction industry, both residential and commercial, that construction is on the upswing. Now, I am not saying it is on the late 1990’s, early 2000’s upswing. But then again, look at what ended up happening.
I have see an increase in construction related job postings and hiring. Many builders and developers are feeling confident about their business in 2013 and going into 2014. This confidence, supported by the amount of positive news that has been generated, is good for the Triangle construction industry.
Here is some of the highlights I have seen in recent days about the good news in the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas and links to read more about the news.
