McGraw-Hill Construction Dodge and The AIA Draw Connection Between Financing and Stalled Projects in a Newly Released Report

Report links 20 percent of stalled U.S. projects to ongoing credit crunch
New York, NY – November 7, 2011

McGraw-Hill Construction Dodge is a primary source of data for a newly released report by The American Institute of Architects (AIA) that correlates the challenges of construction financing to the incidence of stalled projects in the U.S., holding back job creation in the construction industry.

Analysis of Dodge data concludes that the share of projects stalled due to financing problems has nearly doubled since 2008, with the education and multifamily sectors seeing a higher share of stalled projects.

“The increased difficulties construction projects have experienced in securing financing is of real concern to our customers, and this report highlights its extent and impact on the overall U.S. economy and on jobs,” said Keith Fox, president of McGraw-Hill Construction.  “We are glad that we are able to support The AIA in building awareness on this critical topic through the analytics derived from our proprietary Dodge database, and hope it enables greater advocacy to move more of these projects forward.”
