Have you heard the great news? 2023 is shaping up to be a pivotal year of growth for the construction industry. In our recent blog post, we put a spotlight on Bonfire data that points to a 56% increase in the number of public sector construction projects in 2022.
Those projects, focused on repairing gaps and aging infrastructure in cities and counties around North America, are being supported in the U.S. by a new $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Bill. The “once-in-a-generation” federal funding, passed late last year by Congress, aims to help rebuild America and restore the competitiveness of the country’s economy.
With the promise of this huge influx of government investment dollars targeted toward infrastructure, agencies across the country have a steady pipeline of new construction projects going to tender. So, what does this mean for your business? There’s more opportunity than ever for construction firms like yours to get in on the action and begin bidding on lucrative government opportunities. Here’s how.
