Description: McGraw-Hill Construction Outlook 2014


The construction industry is beginning to show indications of a recovery, but challenges still cloud the picture.  Are we in the midst of a strong upturn or will we continue to muddle along?  What are the issues that will have the most impact on construction and what should the industry expect?  McGraw-Hill Construction is in a unique position to provide a knowledgeable perspective on the economy and the construction industry.  Please join Cliff Brewis, McGraw-Hill Construction’s Senior Director of Editorial Operations, as he reviews the construction outlook.


The program will begin by reviewing the national economy, including a discussion of the major economic influences on construction.  From there Cliff will analyze specific construction segments: including housing, commercial, institutional and public works construction.  He will provide McGraw-Hill’s forecast and reasoning.


Essentially, the presentation is an effort to “make sense of it all,” and to help your prepare for the near future.
