Dodge Momentum Index falls in June

By |  July 9, 2015

The Dodge Momentum Index dropped to 118.3 in June, down 1.3 percent from 119.9 in May, reports Dodge Data & Analytics. The Dodge Momentum Index is a monthly measure of the first, or initial, report for nonresidential building projects in planning.

In June, commercial building decreased 2.6 percent. According to Dodge Data, the economic weakness in the first quarter has likely played a role in the lack of performance for this sector. Despite this, the institutional building sector rose .6 percent during the same time period.

In the commercial building sector, there were three projects that exceeded $100 million, including the $128 million Alexander Court office addition and renovation in Washington, D.C.; the $110 million Wharf InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.; and a $108 million warehouse in Boiling Springs, Penn.

The Dodge Momentum Index in June 2015 reads 2.2 percent higher than the June 2014 Index.
