One sign of growth in construction markets – and overall – is a crane. Yes, a crane. A huge, multi-story construction crane. I remember reading a couple/ a few years ago that the majority of the world’s cranes were located in China due to the rapid pace of growth and the ensuing construction there.
This crane is located near downtown Raleigh. It is being used on an apartment complex. Two blocks away a new Hampton Inn is under construction. Raleigh, NC is growing. These are the signs to look for as signals to what’s going on. You can read the negative business press or you can hone your powers of observation to identify windows and opportunities for your business.
