About the Webinar

The US and global economic cycle was upended as a result of multiple black swan events including COVID-19, crashing and unprofitable oil pricing, and unprecedented state and local government intervention via stay-at-home orders. At ITR, we made an exhaustive review of all our forecasts, and these developments have negatively affected the majority of them to varying degrees, as would be expected. In this webinar, Connor Lokar will guide you through what we know so far regarding the aforementioned black swan events and their impact on US construction activity.

What will attendees receive?

  • A clear vision for construction in 2020–21 and beyond and an assessment of the black swans' impact
  • Our system of leading indicators, proven to signal cyclical turns and growth expectations for the US residential and nonresidential construction markets
  • Clear and concise Management Objectives™ to help you prepare for the coming challenges and opportunities
  • Our expectations for employment, inflation, and materials costs

Questions to be answered
