Forecasting skilled labor demand and the resultant effects on construction costs and craft productivity

Westney tracks current and future project activity in order to provide a view of projected skilled labor demand, based on our knowledge of project work-hours, timing, and historic craft profiles.

Deliverables include:

»Forecast of skilled labor demand (by craft/trade) for the project region compared to typical historical demand

»Projected view of likely metrics for construction productivity (by craft/trade) and all-in construction cost for the client’s project during the planned construction timeframe
