Recognizing a need to highlight the important contributions of this sector to the nation’s economy, USG Corporation and the U.S. Chamber partnered to produce this first-of-its-kind index.
Each quarter, contractors across the country are surveyed in order to better understand their levels of confidence in the industry and top-of-mind concerns.
The Commercial Construction Index (CCI) fell three points to the lowest level since the survey began in 2017. Conducted in the midst of the longest federal government shutdown in U.S. history, the survey may reflect increasing caution about a number of factors—the state of the economy, rising interest rates, concerns over material costs—or even the shutdown itself.
The final result is a Commercial Construction Index Score of 72.
