The Economic Impact on the Construction Industry of Additional Demands Caused by New Environmental Protection Standards

The objectives of the study were to:


    1. Describe the important characteristics of the construction industry,
    2. Estimate the magnitude of the demand for construction services stimulated by new EPA standards,
    3. Determine whether the construction industry would be physically capable of providing the additional sevices demanded of it,
    4. Assess the impact of this increased demand on construction costs and on the volume of other construction that will be put in place, and
    5. Identify methods for reducing the dislocations resulting from EPA-stimulated demands.
