Highlights of this encouraging report on construction spending, the ABC’s Chief Economist, Anirban Basu, noted that “a combination of low interest rates; wealth effects stemming from a booming stock market and rising home prices; surging energy production; and expanding industrial output has helped position the U.S. economy for more rapid growth during the next several quarters.”

The ABC is predicting that non-residential spending will growth 7% in 2014.  Moreover, the AIA (American Institute of Architects) is noting that the recent uptick in the ABI (Architecture Billings Index) has “lifted business conditions for firms in the Northeast”.
