U.S. Chamber of Commerce Commercial Construction Index. Zarenski Construction Analytics - Various Indices. ENR Construction Economics - Various Indices. Construction Activity Index - Procore. Infrastructure Industries First, we looked at non-infrastructure projects vs. infrastructure projects.

Construction Activity Index - Procore

Our goal was to see if the specific portions of the industry were responding differently. In early SIP Orders, Healthcare projects experienced significantly less activity reduction than other sectors, as well as less than other non-infrastructure projects. However, that narrative seems to be shifting as there appears to be a large decline in Heathcare worker hours. Energy, on the other hand, appeared to have a large decline in late April but looks to be not only recovering, but seeing somewhat of an acceleration in work well beyond the March benchmark. Transportation has been consistently down throughout the pandemic, more than most infrastructure sectors, but these declines appear to more closely follow the trajectory of non-infrastructure projects.Source: Procore application daily log, data subject to change as customers update data Download Full Metropolitan Report.

Architecture Billings Index - AIA. AIA’s monthly Architecture Billings Index (ABI) is a leading economic indicator for nonresidential construction activity, with a lead time of approximately 9–12 months.

Architecture Billings Index - AIA

The index is derived from AIA’s Work-on-the-Boards survey, which has gathered data on shifts in billings from architectural firm leaders for over 20 years. The resulting data provides a trusted tool for the design and construction industry and other firms to predict and track movements in the market. Market intelligence and analysis International investment groups, major media, small firms and business leaders alike rely on the ABI and other indicators drawn from AIA’s work-on-the-boards survey to assess business conditions. FMI Nonresidential Construction Index (NRCI) Housing Market Index (HMI) - NAHB. The NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) is based on a monthly survey of NAHB members designed to take the pulse of the single-family housing market.

Housing Market Index (HMI) - NAHB

The survey asks respondents to rate market conditions for the sale of new homes at the present time and in the next six months as well as the traffic of prospective buyers of new homes. Current Data Methodology The NAHB/Wells Fargo HMI is a weighted average of three separate component indices: Present Single-Family Sales, Single-Family Sales for the Next Six Months, and Traffic of Prospective Buyers. Each month, a panel of builders rates the first two on a scale of “good,” “fair” or “poor” and the last on a scale of “high to very high,” “average” or “low to very low”. Each resulting index is first seasonally adjusted, then weighted to produce the HMI. Interior Designs Billing Index - ASID.

Plant Cost Index - Chemical Engineering

Current customers login here: Get Chemical Engineering’s Plant Cost Index to Improve Plant Cost Estimates… and delivered online in advance of the print edition! Dear Chemical Engineering colleague, For more than 46 years, chemical process industries (CPI) professionals — engineers, managers, and technicians — have used Chemical Engineering’s Plant Cost Index (CEPCI) to adjust process plant construction costs from one period to another. This index — rather, indexes, as it consists of a composite index and eleven sub–indexes — has received such wide acceptance that it has even been written into construction–contract, cost–escalation clauses. Many CPI professionals, however, are still accessing these numbers the slow way, shuffling back through library archives for the old reference values and waiting for print copies of Chemical Engineering to arrive in the mail with the most recently calculated numbers. Below is a sample: Resources included with the Online CEPCI.
