 Commercial/Multifamily Building Outlook

Kermit Baker
Chief Economist
American Institute of Architects

Kermit Baker is the Chief Economist for the American Institute of Architects in Washington, D.C.  In this capacity, he analyzes business and construction trends for the U.S. economy and examines their impact on AIA members and the architectural profession.  He originated the AIA’s "Work on the Boards” Survey, a monthly assessment of business conditions at architecture firms and the source of the widely followed Architecture Billings Index. He also coordinates the AIA Consensus Construction Forecast Panel, and writes regular economics columns for the AIA member electronic newspaper, AIArchitect.  

This opening session will review the current economic factors impacting the commercial, institutional and multifamily markets. What are the current economic fundamentals of the market and the strengths and weaknesses of these segments? Will we see improvement, decline or flat markets in 2018. The session will include forecasts of the educational, office, retail, health care, hotel, warehouse and multifamily market segments.
