Sandherr, who is the CEO of the Associated General Contractors of America and Sage Construction stated that, “this optimism is likely based on current economic conditions, an increasingly business-friendly regulatory environment and expectations the Trump administration will boost infrastructure investments.

It looks like if things continue the way that they are, then 2018 will be a strong year for the construction industry!
