Deltek Pulse: Architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) month in review, January 2017

One underlying trend that Deltek observed for the second half of 2016 was a continue decrease in the number of architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) projects issued by state and local agencies. In January 2017, that trend reversed in a big way. Bids were up 35% from December 2016, which should be taken with a grain of salt due to the traditional holiday slow down. However, the increase over September and October 2016 is approximately 15%. January experienced the most number of projects issued since August 2016. We won’t know for sure if this increase is a blip in the trend line or something that will continue for 2017 until we make our way further into the year.

In January, city governments released the most bids, with 32.5%, followed by state agencies at 30.9%, with counties and universities following at 14.8% and 7.5%, respectively.

Regionally, the South continued to be on top with 35% of solicitations, followed by the West at 24.5%, Midwest at 21.2% and East at 19%. One surprise for the month was the high volume of bids coming out of Weld and Arapahoe Counties in Colorado, which topped the list in January, beating out Los Angeles, California.
