There are several reasons for highlighting upcoming large projects. Such jobs have often received a fair amount of media coverage. Therefore, people in the industry are on the lookout for when jobsite work actually gets underway.

In other words, the timing and size of these projects have an exaggerated influence on market forecasts.
