New construction is a huge driver of the local economy, generating both temporary and permanent jobs and bringing new homes into the market to support a growing population. It also serves existing residents and businesses with new space for shops, offices and warehouses, and brings more venues to Orlando’s tourism industry, which drew a record 68 million visitors in 2016.
Typically, the higher the value, the more construction jobs a project general!
