Greater Boston is 2nd to Los Angeles in new construction jobs, beating Houston, Atlanta and Phoenix. Employers and employees want to work live and play in our beautiful city.
According to the Boston Globe, “since August 2012, construction activity and employment have jumped. The Boston metro area added 8,700 construction jobs, compared with 8,900 in Los Angeles and 8,200 in Houston…Driving this surge are several factors, including the strength of Boston’s technology, biotechnology, and medical industries, pent-up demand for housing, and improved credit conditions that have made financing available for commercial construction.”
What we’re experiencing is the revitalization and creation of communities that cater to the changing demands of today’s workforce, while offering all aspects of a residential community that includes schools and grocery stores. Thank you to our construction industry for making this happen.
