Total US construction starts for 2017 will advance 5% to $713 billion, following gains of 11% in 2015 and an estimated 1% in 2016, according to the 2017 Dodge Construction Outlook, a mainstay in construction industry forecasting and business planning.
The report predicts moderate growth for most project types, such as single family housing, commercial and institutional building, and public works, while multifamily housing is expected to level off and the building of electrical utilities and gas plants is expected to decline.

- site cleaning
- small renovation contractors
- general contractors
- roofing services
- cement production
- aluminum door and window manufacturing
- structural engineering design
- awning manufacturing
- basement remodeling
- staffing brokerages
- materials sales
