Idaho Associated General Contractors, "The current construction outlook in Boise remains strong," Hammon says. "Over the past year, several large private projects have wrapped up, yet the area's commercial and office vacancy rates remain below pre-recession levels." He adds that an increase in rents has sparked additional growth in the retail, office and multifamily housing sectors. "While funding for public projects remains a concern, contractors across the Treasure Valley are enjoying their busiest spring in years," Hammon says.
