Housing & Manufacturing

Bad News...Good News!

According to a report by Dodge Construction Network, total construction starts rebounded in February, reaching a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $912.8 billion. This rebound comes as a result of bustling building activity for manufacturing plants and homes. Despite this, however, construction starts for the first two months of the year are still 17% below their 2022 levels due to a large dropoff in January. The commercial and institutional sectors are also facing weaknesses, which poses a cause for concern.

On a positive note, residential and nonresidential building starts rose significantly in February, with the former experiencing an 11% jump and the latter a 9% increase. Single-family homes even made their first gain in 13 months. However, non-building starts, which contain infrastructure projects, experienced a 5% decline.

It’s important to note that overall year-to-date numbers were down, but for the 12 months ending in February 2023, total construction starts moved 9% higher than the previous year, as reported by the Dodge Construction Network.

What can you do to brace for the new market

Establishing a memorable brand that resonates with your target audience is crucial for any company. By developing a comprehensive and unique brand, you will differentiate yourself from competitors and build a strong reputation in the market. Unfortunately, creating a brand that truly stands out takes time and effort. This is where Brand Development and Marketing come in – they can assist you in engaging with a network of professionals who can elevate your business.

To reach new clients and expand your reach, it’s essential to explore both traditional and non-traditional networking channels. Advertising and generating original content on innovative platforms can help attract followers and build brand awareness. Don’t be afraid to take risks in messaging and strategy, and always optimize campaigns to maximize success. Collaborating with influencers and pushing your limits outside of your comfort zone can help your brand truly soar.

Marvin Windows

As people spend more time indoors, we recognize that our work isn’t just about building better windows and doors—it’s about opening new possibilities for how people live, work, think and feel inside a Marvin space.

Since the day we opened our doors in 1912 as a family-owned and -operated cedar and lumber company, we’ve looked for ways to help people live better. We continue to evolve by raising the bar, building quality, beauty and simplicity into people’s everyday lives.


The Pacific Companies

Communities face a big shortage of top quality housing and the skilled workers needed to build it. We strive to do more with less: produce more housing, build more quality into it, and inventively drive down cost at every point in the process. To the extent we do this, we help people stay in the communities they love, and enjoy a higher quality of life. 


Our first-of-its-kind factory brings together the best practices of modular construction and automation. Now up and running, the Autovol factory is building in a whole new way. Robots do the backbreaking labor with speed and precision. Solutioneers practice the trades with pride and joy. Communities get higher quality housing in less time at less cost. That’s construction 3.0.
