As we continue working together to find a new normal, things continue to change along with us. The past few years have been a roller coaster for most of us. Between COVID-19 and the “Delta” variant, we’ve all had to adapt. In the midst of this, we’re doing our best to keep you and our employees safe. Here are a few ways we’re making sure our commercial construction projects are well-positioned to succeed and uphold the Diamond Standard.

What is Commercial Construction? 

Commercial construction projects cover structures like offices, retail centers, and industrial buildings. They even cover hospitals and college campuses. These projects are overseen by a commercial contracting company. There are some companies that only specialize in one or two fields. Luckily at Diamond Contractors, we specialize in all of your commercial construction needs. Whether it’s rollout programs, expansions and upgrades, new construction, remodels, and more, we’ll make sure the Diamond Standard is upheld in every project.

Future of Commercial Construction

The past year has been tough for many subcategories of nonresidential construction. In fact, there were only four categories that actually saw an increase in projects. Of those four, commercial construction came out on top with a 3.4% increase since last year. On top of that, Congress passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This law has been touted as a once-in-a-generation investment. So what is it?

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act focuses on rebuilding America’s roads, bridges, and other critical infrastructures. It supports more than 700,000 new jobs including 175,000 construction jobs. One of the goals is to address climate issues like legacy pollution, clean energy, protecting against natural disasters, and overall modernizing our cities. The infrastructure package is set to be released in the third and fourth quarters of 2022. 

The skyrocketing residential prices are also set to have a positive impact on commercial construction. Your local government receives a lot of its revenue from property taxes. Home re-assessments will mean a larger tax base for your community. The local government will have more funds to devote to construction projects that benefit your local area. Many local agencies have yet to spend the money for government construction, included in the American Rescue Plan, as well.

This means that state and local government spending will be a large backer of commercial construction. Diamond Contractors is excited to be a part of many new projects to come locally to Kansas City, as well as many other areas around the United States. We’ll be looking to make improvements to community buildings like schools, hospitals, and libraries. Any chance we get to improve the communities we live in makes us extremely proud.
