Military Construction: In the Southeast, This Market is One of Few Marching Forward
March 01, 2010
From South Florida to North Carolina, construction workers are busy at military bases, creating a bright spot in an otherwise slow marketplace.
“2010 will probably be a busier year than 2009,” says Kent Long, senior vice president of Balfour Beatty Construction of Plantation, Fla. “[Military work] is the only positive light I can see out there right now, particularly in the Southeast. We were fortunate to have a concentration of Base Realignment and Closure bases.”
Balfour Beatty has three current BRAC-related projects, which were funded in 2009, and Long says American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars are enabling some projects to be built sooner than expected. [more]
