Non-residential Renovation Starts to Rise in 2013

 Non residential Renovation Starts to Rise in 2013An infographic in the February 2013 edition of the Architectural Record suggests that renovation projects in the non-residential sector will jump 8 percent to $42 billion this year.

The report, which is based on data from McGraw-Hill, further suggests that New York City led the nation in 2012 with $6.12 billion in renovation starts. Perhaps the surge of new work already underway in NYC is the reason why the same report also named the Northeast as the only region that will not experience an increase in renovation starts this year.

Other top cities for renovation starts in 2012 were Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and Boston. That focus is expected to shift in 2013, with the Southeast leading the way for new renovation projects.

Deconstructing Construction Waste and Saving Big with Modular

Construction accounts for 24 percent of all solid waste produced in the U.S. That’s approximately 160 million tons of construction and demolition (C&D) debris created every year.

Reducing construction waste can have a tremendous impact on landfill costs, not to mention the obvious benefit to our environment. One solution for greener building is modular construction. Modular is inherently more resource efficient, and can dramatically reduce C&D waste.
