Thanks in part to increased federal funding, Stidworthy says Albuquerque is “seeing strong funding levels across the board for public sector agencies at all levels, [and] lots of the funding, including at the state and local level, is coming from the federal level through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and other federal legislation.” 

New Mexico’s state government budget also is strong “thanks in very large part to the oil and gas industry,” Stidworthy adds.

Altogether, the increased funding is supporting “substantial projects in a variety of arenas, including several transportation projects like Sunport Boulevard Extension, substantial health care projects like UNM Replacement Hospital and Presbyterian Hospital Tower and Parking Garage and major utility system projects like the Pojoaque Basin Regional Water System,” says Stidworthy.

Also boosting activity, he says, are “major projects in various stages of design and construction” at the Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories as well as private projects for Intel, Facebook, Netflix and Amazon.
