Looking ahead at commercial construction for 2020

The American Institute of Architects, or AIA, compiles information from sources including Dodge Data & Analytics, Construct Connect, Wells Fargo Securities, and Associated Builders and Contractors to get consensus on construction forecasts across a range of non-residential building categories. Twice a year, the panelists project business conditions over the coming 12 to 18 months.

Among the non-residential construction sectors, retail and other commercial projects offer the brightest forecast, with a projected 0.3% uptick in 2020 as compared to a negative 0.8% decline in 2019, according to the most recent consensus forecast.
