US Construction Spending Increases Prompting Recruitment Boom

New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 02/24/2022 — USA construction spending is on the up, not just on a month-to-month basis but also compared to the levels for the previous year. For example, spending in November last year was higher than both October and November 2020 thanks to gains made in key areas such as private residential projects. According to the Associated General Contractors of America, this, combined with private non-residential projects, was enough to outweigh many of the slowdowns in public sector spending. The bipartisan infrastructure bill – which was brought into law last year – has yet to provide any funding, which is one of the reasons why public sector investments are down. However, private non-residential construction experienced five solid months of growth and total construction spending in November totaled US$1.63 trillion. Recruitment across the sector is necessarily going to boom thanks to the spending increase, in particular, once the funding sources from the infrastructure bill finally start to flow.

As a construction recruiter in the USA, following the progress of the private and public sectors has been a key part of the job for LVI Associates over the past year or so.
