Total construction put in place in 2012 will be 5 percent higher than in 2011, according to the first quarter 2012 Construction Outlook report from FMI Corp. FMI projections show residential construction up 8 percent in 2012, and nonresidential construction up 4 percent.

"One of the keys for growth [for nonresidential construction] will be the return of private investment in construction.

Research indicates that there are signs this is starting to happen," according to the report.
