Denver, Colorado - Denver construction has been booming. Residential construction is expected to account for about two-thirds of the market's growth in 2021. The market, on the other hand, is likely to return to normal in 2022. There are two possible explanations for the recent uptick in activity: first, the surge of new residential development that has swept the nation. When the epidemic began in 2020, many initiatives were either halted, terminated, or put on hold. These projects have resumed now that the situation has settled at least a little bit more. This had a negative impact on volume in 2020 but a positive impact in 2021.
Denver's central location between the East Coast and the Midwest makes it an ideal location for distribution and storage operations. However, the city's unemployment rate has remained lower than the national average despite the fact that it still has a long way to go before it reaches pre-pandemic levels once again. Construction employment is at a historically low level, although this is not projected to have a significant impact on prices in the near future because of the expected decline in demand.
