Construction Forecast:
Housing-Driven Expansion Reaches Turning Point

Posted October 6, 2006 | Categories: Forecasts, Hawaii's Economy

 Hawai‘i’s construction cycle is at a turning point. Residential construction, which has largely driven the recent expansion, will soften as rising costs meet flattening demand. With home appreciation largely over and affordability much eroded, the real volume of residential construction activity will begin to recede gradually. Nonresidential elements of construction will be relatively stronger. The outlook is for gradual slowing; construction employment and earnings are expected to remain near recent peaks for the next several years.
