Contractors go to White House, worried about rising costs
August 13, 2008
The president and CEO of the Associated General Contractors of America
met with President Bush yesterday to discuss their concerns about the rising cost of petroleum and other major components of construction, which have dramatically increased construction costs
this year. Since many public projects are tightly bound by the community's borrowing ability, ways have to be found either to reduce other costs or some projects will simply go unbuilt. One way to help is to use fabricated enclosures
for everything from pump station buildings to chemical storage, since they can significantly reduce the cost to build in the field.
