Survey shows hot markets for healthcare construction in 2010

 
March 24th, 2010 by Susan Smith

According to a survey done by ZweigWhite, over half of architecture and engineering firms see the West Coast as the action market for healthcare construction in 2010.

The ZweigWhite quarterly report Market Advisor will publish the results of the survey.

According to a press release, “over half of respondents to the healthcare survey said that the West Coast is where the work is, with 28% saying the Southwest is the hottest geographic area, and 24% pointing to the Northwest. The Northeast and the Midwest, both at 16%, also fared well. Only 4% respondents pointed to the international arena as where they see potential in 2010.

“Southern California is an active aging market,” says Edward Caruana, president of c|a Architects from Long Beach, CA. “We feel health facilities whatever complexion they take on in the future will be needed in this busy area.”

Among significant findings:

  • 37% of respondents are optimistic about healthcare being a hot market this year, but 40% are in the “wait and see mode,” and 23% are not touching it.
  • 44% of respondents say new hospital projects will lead health care in 2010, a significant percentage (32%) say they will work mostly on renovations and upgrades, due to lack of funding for all-new facilities.
  • 67% of respondents pointed to lack of financing as the biggest hindrance to this market in 2010.”

    Good entry.It seems that architects and engineers are facing this issue in regards to building and developing retirement communities for seniors not just in the West Coast of America but all across the country. Of course,this is also a problem or concern in other industrialized countries that have an aging population increase.With the birthrates going down I think that this is going to be the main issue with architects and engineers and anyone in the construction industry that deals with healthcare.
