BOSTON, MA, September 27, 2017– Walsh Brothers Assistant Project Manager, Todd Fernald, a member of the sub-committee on construction data for the AGC MA Code Committee, contributed to the MassCon Pulse 2017 Q1, Q2 release. This report offers insight into the pace and short-term outlook of the construction industry’s activity throughout the state.

“While the data speaks to a strong overall picture through the end of 2017 the AGC MA continues to hear chatter over ongoing labor shortages and, more recently, increased material costs burdening the construction industry. Concern over what these obstacles imply about the current economic health of the industry, and what they will mean going forward, persist despite the fact that growth continues to trend in a favorable direction” said Mr. Fernald.
