Infrastructure: What’s Happening Now? What’s Happening Next?

By Brenda Araujo | Video

With the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), expectations about the infrastructure sector in the U.S. have heightened. That legislation will be both a boon to the sector, but it also has the potential to exacerbate the challenges faced by civil contractors, creating the potential for dramatic change in that industry.

Since 2020, Dodge Data & Analytics has been publishing data from civil contractors and engineers on the health of the infrastructure market and key trends impacting it in The Civil Quarterly.

Watch this video as Donna Laquidara-Carr, Ph.D., LEED AP, Industry Insights Research Director from Dodge explores what the last two years of publication have revealed about the potential for growth, the challenges faced by contractors, and key trends that will influence this sector in the next few years. Topics include:

  • Current business conditions of contractors, including their expectations for the future, skilled labor shortage impacts, and dealing with supply chain challenges.
  • Key technology trends including the top technologies used onsite, the use of reality capture on civil projects, and cybersecurity.
  • Contractor responses to the IIJA and its potential for the sector.
  • The growing movement toward sustainability and resiliency in the civil sector.
