Understanding the Essence of Infrastructure

BuildCentral is launching a new planned construction data product, Infrastructure+. Best for project leads and site selection, Infrastructure+ gets construction professionals the key project details, construction schedules, and decision-maker contact information they need to win more business. Whether you’re in commercial real estate (CRE), an engineer or contractor or a manufacturer or supplier, Infrastructure+ has the data and analytics tools you need to get and stay ahead of competition. With that in mind, let’s get into the value of the data and what comes in an Infrastructure+ project report.

Infrastructure Builds, Connects and Grows Communities

Infrastructure, the backbone of societal progress, extends far beyond the bricks and mortar of construction. While construction primarily deals with erecting physical structures, infrastructure encompasses a broader spectrum, dividing into horizontal elements like transportation networks and utilities and vertical components, including roadways and structures. This distinction marks the crux of our exploration into the world of data-driven insights that fuel economic growth and development.

Infrastructure, often the silent architect of economic landscapes, shapes the destiny of communities and nations. As we navigate through the intricate web of development, it’s crucial to recognize how infrastructure acts as both a precursor and an engine for economic prosperity. Our Infrastructure Bill blog serves as a testament to the contemporary significance of infrastructure in steering local and national economies toward a trajectory of growth.

City streets and infrastructure

Infrastructure does more than merely facilitate the movement of people and goods; it contributes to the formation of robust and modern communities. Picture the impact of well-maintained roads on daily commutes, the accessibility of utilities ensuring a high quality of life and efficient waste management systems fostering cleanliness. These seemingly innocuous elements collectively elevate communities, fostering an environment where individuals thrive and businesses flourish.

Regarding the rural state of the economy, rural infrastructure augments rural communities, but it also plays a role in enabling more sustainable agriculture practices and products. According to this article, improving rural infrastructure enables the promotion of resource-conserving agriculture and enhances environmental performance, especially for those paying high production costs. Another article states: “From the macro level, rural infrastructure construction mainly has an impact on the rural economy by promoting non-agricultural employment (Qin et al., 2022), enhancing urban-rural integration, and ensuring the rural ecological environment.”

Economies need both public and private investments in infrastructure to open new businesses and create more jobs. As this article points out: “Whereas private infrastructure investment is positively and significantly associated with the creation of businesses and jobs, public infrastructure investments are associated with the destruction of businesses and jobs. These results point to private infrastructure investment serving primarily an entrepreneurial enabler role and public infrastructure investment an entrepreneurial disabler role.” The article also says this: “The opening of a new establishment results in the creation of jobs that did not previously exist. Similarly, the closing of an establishment results in the permanent loss of jobs.”

Examples of Infrastructure Projects Driving Construction and Development

In our Infrastructure Bill Blog, we touched on the different infrastructure categories the $1.2 trillion included in the Bill will go to. One such project funded by the Bill is the 22nd Street Revitalization Project in Tucson, AZ. will replace an existing 1960s-era bridge in poor condition with a new bridge over the Union Pacific Railroad and State Route 210.

Here are some infrastructure projects we’re tracking on our platform:

Infrastructure as an Indicator of Future Economic Activity

State and Local Infrastructure Spending: A Closer Look

The Potential of Informed Financial Decisions

Infrastructure, with its expansive reach, serves as a harbinger of economic activities yet to unfold. Studying infrastructure trends provides a unique vantage point for making informed financial decisions. A new road may signify more than a mere pathway; it can be a precursor to new businesses, revitalization of commercial zones and the potential for lucrative investments. The foresight gained from understanding these indicators empowers you to navigate economic landscapes with precision.

The Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports that 11% of rural roads and 32.1% of urban roads were in unsatisfactory condition in 2020. At some point, these roads will have to be rehabilitated, and local businesses will be affected. If you’re a contractor, supplier or engineer, this could bring you business. If you’re a developer, it’s important for you to know the impact to local roads and businesses. Without the right data, you’re in the dark.

Infrastructure Data’s Importance for Different Construction Professionals

Manufacturers and Suppliers

For manufacturers and suppliers of building equipment, materials and products used in infrastructure projects, staying abreast of infrastructure data is crucial. Understanding upcoming projects allows you to align production schedules, optimize inventory levels and tailor your offerings to meet the specific needs of forthcoming developments. By leveraging infrastructure data, manufacturers and suppliers can position themselves as strategic partners, providing essential resources precisely when and where they are needed most.

Engineers, Contractors & Subcontractors

Engineers, contractors and subcontractors are the architects and builders tasked with bringing infrastructure projects to fruition. For these professionals, access to accurate and timely infrastructure data is paramount. It enables you to assess project feasibility, develop cost estimates and identify potential challenges or opportunities early in the planning process. By leveraging infrastructure data, engineering and construction firms can streamline project execution, minimize risks and deliver high-quality outcomes that meet the needs of your clients and communities.

Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Developers

Commercial real estate developers play a pivotal role in shaping the built environment, from office towers and retail centers to residential communities and industrial parks. For CRE developers, infrastructure data serve as critical inputs in site selection, investment decision-making and project planning. By analyzing infrastructure trends and planned projects, developers can identify emerging growth corridors, assess market demand and capitalize on opportunities to create vibrant, mixed-use developments that attract tenants and drive value.
