The construction industry has been grappling with a problem of rising costs for decades.
But a new report says the cost of the construction industry is on the rise again.
The International Association of Building Contractors says in a report released Wednesday that construction industry workers and construction equipment rental costs increased by 3.2 percent in the third quarter of this year.
That’s a big increase over the year’s third quarter, which saw a 1.9 percent increase in construction labor costs.
The increase was slightly lower than the increase in total construction labor and construction machinery costs.
But that’s not a big deal to construction companies, said Robert Mazzucato, senior vice president of government affairs for the IAB.
“We have had a very good business in the last 10 to 20 years.
The real issue is the increased costs of construction equipment, especially construction equipment for public works, and that’s something that’s getting more expensive,” he said.”
There are a number of factors at work here.
We’ve seen a surge in the cost and a shift to new technology.
We’re seeing an increasing use of automation and a higher cost for some of those services.
We also have a significant increase in the number of construction workers in the U.S. That means more costs are going to go into building equipment, and it’s not as easy to make a profit from that.”
The new report comes on the heels of the death of construction worker Mike Stahl, who died after falling down a concrete ramp at a construction site in West Virginia.
Stahl was working for a private company called the Stahl Construction Company.
He died while working on a project in a construction zone at the construction site of the Washington State Fair in Bellingham, Wash.
A few weeks ago, the Washington Construction Association released a statement saying that it “condemns this senseless, dangerous and unnecessary act of violence.”
It also called on the construction companies to be more responsible.
“It is absolutely unacceptable that a construction worker should be exposed to this level of risk and violence,” the group said.
“The safety of our members and guests is our highest priority.
We are asking that all construction companies be held accountable for this act of negligence and bring their safety practices into line with the standards set by the Construction Safety and Health Council.”
In a statement, the construction company said it was “deeply saddened by this tragic loss of life,” adding that it is cooperating with authorities.
The company said the death is being investigated by the Bureau of Labor and Industries and it is providing a full and thorough investigation.
The firm said it is looking into all the circumstances surrounding this incident.
