AGC Webinar: Outlook for Materials, Equipment & Labor Costs

Construction has endured eight years of volatile costs and unexpected shortages of key materials. Early 2012 was no exception as diesel and gypsum prices spiked. What lies ahead for the rest of the year? Is this a good time to buy or rent equipment? Will labor costs begin to accelerate as work picks up but more people leave the industry? Are there foreseeable shortages and, if so, can contractors do anything to prepare for them? Two outside experts and AGC's chief economist, Ken Simonson, will provide their predictions and answer your questions during this AGC webinar.

When: May 22, 2012
