It’s hard to believe that we are already looking into 2019 in terms of industry trends and what to expect on the job market landscape. Believe it or not, US Lawmakers have already signed legislation to increase spending on Military construction projects by 2.4% in the coming year. That equates to earmarking $10.3 million just for military related construction projects in 2019.
This measure provides funding to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its Directorate of Civil Works (for harbor maintenance, lock, dam, levee and environmental restoration), the Naval Facilities Engineering Command and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (for hospitals, medical clinics, cemeteries). As this is great news for those contractors that specialize in government related construction projects including infrastructure, VA hospitals, etc., there may also be room for smaller general contractors and subcontractors who are trying to get their foot in the door with military projects. For additional information on how your company may be able to get a piece of this lucrative pie in 2019, check out constructiondive.com for details and additional resources.
