With construction being a main contributor to the economy, local building contractors are optimistic that spending in 2019 overall will be positive, especially in the non-residential sector. According to a recent Consensus Construction Forecast survey, growth is projected to be 4.4 percent in nonresidential building this year with another 2.4 percent in 2020. John Nimmer from Forest Construction in Luxemburg says his company’s work has branched out in a different direction.
Nonresidential construction grew over seven percent last year. Construction in the public safety sector is projected to grow the most in 2019 by nearly seven percent, according to the Consensus Construction Forecast survey.
