2017 Best Start for Utah's Construction Industry since 2007 (Construction Report by David Eccles School of Business, Universisty of Utah)| (click to view the Utah Construction Reports)

 :  Construction activity has had a strong start in 2017, with the mid-year numbers at the highest level in 10 years. The number of building permits issued for residential units through the first six months was 11,145, nearly 22 percent higher than 2016 and the highest mid-year level since 2007. Total construction valuation at $4.1 billion was also at the highest midyear level since 2007 and five percent above 2016

Nonresidential Construction
 :  Last year, nonresidential construction in Utah hit a historic high of $2.5 billion, four percent above the previous high of $2.4 billion in 2007 (inflation adjusted). From 2014 to 2016, the value of nonresidential construction activity more than doubled, and the mid-year 2017 numbers point to another strong year for nonresidential construction. It is very likely that 2017 will be the third consecutive year nonresidential value finishes above $2 billion. The recent surge in nonresidential construction follows several years of strong employment and demographic growth, which has created demand for more office, industrial, and retail space as well as increased the demand for large nonprofit and public works construction such as hospitals and the Salt Lake International Airport’s Redevelopment Program Project.    Through the first six months of 2017, the value of permit authorized nonresidential construction was $1.18 billion. The industrial sector was the leader with $274.1 million in permit valuation far ahead of the second ranked sector, office buildings with $150.6 million (View the chart below).
