Every year, Turner & Townsend, a construction and project management consultant in the UK, performs a large scale International Construction Market Survey. The survey examines spending and cost trends from major markets from around the world to provide insight on the construction industry’s global performance.

This year, four US cities landed on the list for most expensive cities to build in: New York, San Francisco, Seattle, and Houston. These cities don’t come as a surprise, since all four have plenty of construction projects happening and are all extremely populated. Last year, Seattle actually had the most cranes erected at one point in all of America, totaling 58.
