1st Quarter Construction Numbers Reported by Building Links

Posted on May 23, 2018

Building Links has compiled the construction statistics for the first quarter of 2018 for the Comox Valley and Campbell River communities. Compared to 2017 we reported an increase of 28 per cent in overall construction values in the areas of Courtenay, Comox, the Comox Valley Regional District, Cumberland and Campbell River. This amount was slightly higher than the 25 per cent increase reported comparing the first quarter of 2016 to 2017.

Total construction values for the first quarter of 2018 total $59.6 million compared to $46.4 million in 2017. There has been a slight decline in the construction of single family dwellings, and an increase in the construction of multi family residential housing including duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes and secondary dwellings.

The Comox Valley Regional District reported the highest increase (41 per cent) increase in single family construction when comparing 2017 to 2018, while the growth in other municipalities was primarily due to an in- crease in the construction of multi-family residential units.

Growth in Cumberland registered a 114 per cent increase during the first quarter of 2018, mostly due to multi-family residential housing construction. It is the same story in Campbell River as their construction statistics showed 41 per cent increase primarily due to an increase in permits for multi-residential housing.

The number of permits for single family homes are down slightly across all areas with the Comox Valley Regional District being the only community show- ing an increase when comparing 2018 to 2017. Moving forward for 2018 we expect to see a continued increase in the construction of secondary suites, carriage homes and secondary dwellings. We also expect to see an increase in the new construction of multi-residential housing for sale and new builds for rental housing and a decrease in the construction of single family homes for 2018.
