Commercial Building Construction in Canada

Operators in the Commercial Building Construction industry in Canada have experienced strong growth over the past five years. Declining vacancy rates for retail and office building space between 2010 and 2011 allowed the industry to pick up strongly. Commercial construction typically lags behind the overall economy by up to two years, due in part to the length of construction contracts and the pipeline of projects that general contractors keep on the books. Over the five years to 2021, this pipeline of projects and new contracts is anticipated to allow revenue to rebound and expand. The industry is also set to benefit from the increased migration of the population toward metropolitan areas. Additionally, a stronger push toward green and sustainable construction will further bolster demand.

This industry constructs (i.e. new work, additions, alterations, maintenance and repairs) office, retail, hotel and entertainment buildings. The majority of participants are general contractors or project managers. This industry does not include municipal building construction, which comprises institutional buildings such as schools, hospitals and churches.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
