Construction Expected to Grow According to FMI’s Q2 Construction Outlook


The growth in the first quarter of 2015 that the construction industry has been experiencing is going to continue into the second quarter says a report by investment bankers at FMI Corp. The outlook for the second quarter is a growth of 5 percent, and while that is still lower then anticipated last quarter, it is the highest total for construction since 2008. The report covered 17 construction sectors across residential, non-residential and non-building groups.
