As construction rebounds, education sector spending flattens

Construction investment in the education sector is still in a post-recession slump, even as spending on all construction continues to rise from its low point in early 2011.

The latest “Construction Put in Place” estimates from the Census Bureau show total construction spending in August at $1.142 trillion. That’s a 97% recovery from the most recent spending peak in the first quarter of 2006, and 51.4% higher than the Census estimate for January 2011, $754.7 billion, which was the lowest point for construction during the recession.
