Comment on Construction / Development Activity in Florida

I frequently visit the web-site of Southeast Construction News (McGraw-Hill) to see "what's going on in the A/E/C market in Florida. I've been visiting this site for many years. This site used to be filled with "news" highlights about "private sector" non-residential and residential design/development/construction projects, each month, each quarter, every year.

I just copied into this post the "headline news articles" listed during the most recent six month period. It's a good thing that there are still public works projects, school projects and healthcare related projects going on, because if that was not the case, the AEC market in Florida, design/development/construction-wise, would be way down deep in the toilet.

Below, I've highlighted the "headline news articles" that are (or can be considered) "private sector" projects; as you can see, there are very, very few!
