As 2021 starts to gets its groove on, experts predict that the construction industry will be making up for lost time. Many contractors are likely to be hiring again—there could even be a labor shortage.
Challenging But Good Times Ahead
Headed into spring, For Construction Pros anticipates that: Many of the large-scale infrastructure and industrial projects delayed in 2020 will gradually get back online, and construction firms forced to downsize during the downturn will look to re-staff teams in order to adequately complete projects and make up for lost time.
The residential building is expected to continue growing strong, as work from home policies free employees to move away from city centers. Technology markets around Southern California, Austin, Orlando, Atlanta and Raleigh are anticipated to be extra hot with high demand in positions including, construction sales reps and field and development managers.
Experts also believe that delayed and anticipated infrastructure projects across the country, will get green-lit with public funding—and workers who can hit the ground running will be in high demand. Already, innovative transportation projects are underway in many states.
