US Construction Spending Surges 8.2%

New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 05/02/2022 — Despite the obvious supply chain issues of the past 12 months, there has been positive news for US construction, with spending surging more than 8% on previous figures at the start of this year. Outlays on single-family homebuilding and private nonresidential structures provided a particular boost to the numbers, which showed an increase in both the figures from the year before as well as those for December. Although the rise in spending is positive, the reality of higher prices for building materials is obviously still having an impact. This is especially so with respect to materials such as framed lumber. Spending on public construction projects also saw a small increase of 0.6% during the same time period. In terms of local and federal spending on construction, the numbers couldn’t be more different, with outlay on federal projects increasing by 13.8% while local and government construction projects saw a reduction in spending of 0.5%.
