"Non-residential building construction opportunities will be flat for the rest of this year in Colorado Springs," Nunn says. "Due to the unused inventory of commercial and industrial space, there is a smaller demand for construction and a limited amount of renovation and tenant improvement work. Owners are challenged in obtaining project funding, which is holding up project starts, but multifamily construction has increased and will continue to improve the rest of the year, as will the single-family residential market."
