Washington Current Construction Outlook

Building permits for apartment and multifamily housing were down in the second quarter of the year, while single-family housing permits are on the rise. Currently, the single-family permits are clocked at 18,800. In the second quarter of 2018, 32,900 multifamily permits were issued, and in the second quarter of 2019, the last full-year before the disruption caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, 26,500 permits were issued.

The downturn coincides with Washington’s persistent calls for increased housing construction, especially of multifamily and rental properties, to address the state’s scarcity of affordable homes. This year, lawmakers enacted several measures to boost housing construction, including ones that broaden the permitted locations for duplexes and triplexes, relax some restrictions on backyard cottages and other “accessory dwelling units,” and try to expedite the permission approval procedure. 

Why Might It Take Longer?

These laws come into effect in July and may take years to implement correctly. Current information from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that construction in Washington state is on the rise. This is excellent news for clients, but for how long? If the state doesn’t find ways to expedite the whole process properly, things will look bleak. Whatever the case, our Washington Construction estimating services are an easy way to bring some reality to these perceptions. See, in life, facts matter.

The majority of Washington-based businesses plan to expand in 2024 to meet the increased demand for their projects.  Still, 69% of contractors in Washington state that they are finding it difficult to fill some or all of their hourly or salaried craft roles.
