The two national construction reporting services reported unsurprising data on starts in February this week. With slightly more weather disruption than in January, February was a difficult month for construction. Both Reed Construction Data and McGraw-Hill reported construction down 3% from January and from February 2013.
Locally, Massaro Corp. succeeded in landing a pair of projects that had been requesting proposals a week or so ago. Carlow chose Massaro for its $11.8 million expansion and UPMC awarded the company the enabling work at the old Children’s Hospital/Presbyterian Hospital site. Massaro and PJ Dick are the finalists for the deconstruction of the remaining piece of Children’s.
