Public owners, anticipating passage of the $2-billion NC Connect bond measure, are making preparations to move forward on planned projects, says Heath. Noting considerable funding for higher education projects across North Carolina as one bright spot, Heath says, “We think there’s going to be a lot of opportunity.” Health care construction is on the rise, she adds, with multiple medical facility owners across the state planning major developments. “The market has really picked up. We’re seeing a lot of activity right now,” she says.
