“We are seeing the advanced technology market coming in strong in the second half of 2023 and into 2024, with the aerospace and defense industries leading the way,” Miller says. “Small projects are plentiful [and the] supply chain has opened back up with the exception of long-lead equipment.”  

Miller notes that while developer-led projects for commercial office and mixed-use spaces have slowed along the Front Range due to higher interest rates, GE Johnson is optimistic about health care bouncing back to a more traditional activity level compared with the past few years.

“Colorado Springs continues to see population growth and has community assets for people moving to Colorado from out of state. We expect the area to continue growing and building to accommodate residents and visitors with a variety of projects, as indicated with an increase in planning for health care. Our industry continues to be challenged with a tight labor market, like other cities, and trade partners are staying busy. We are optimistic for continued growth in the Colorado Springs market for 2024, 2025 and beyond,” he says.
