Nonresidential construction, multifamily building fall in 2008

VIEWS: 1 PAGES: 1

Construction starts revealed a downward trend over the course of 2008 as emerging weakness for commercial building joined housing's extended slide, according to New York-based McGraw-Hill Construction's survey of construction starts. Nonresidential building in 2008 edged up 1% to $237.7 billion, with part of the upward impetus coming from a 53% surge for manufacturing plant construction that was lifted by the start of four massive oil-refinery expansions totaling a combined $14.3 billion. The commercial side of nonresidential building fell 17% in 2008, showing the impact of the weak economy and tight bank lending standards.
