Construction Forecast: Construction Begins to Stabilize

Posted September 24, 2010 | Categories: Forecasts, Hawaii's Economy

Hawaii's construction industry continues to seek a bottom to what has been a bruising downturn. Recent months have brought some encouraging news, with permitting numbers beginning to stabilize and employment losses tapering off. The home resale market appears healthier, although this can be explained in part by the now-expired Federal tax credits. At the same time, non-resedential permitting remains very weak and focused on just a small number of large projects. Until private demand picks up, the industry will find its most promising support in public sector projects, which are expected to ramp up further in coming months.
