Nonresidential construction spending fell 0.7% from June to $298.8 billion, while year-to-date nonresidential construction spending was up 8.4% from the same period for 2011 notes Reed Construction Data U.S. chief economist Bernard M. Markstein. June numbers were revised down $1.3 billion. As a result, instead of rising 0.3% as was originally reported, June spending declined 0.1%. July construction spending increased 0.2% for office, 0.4% for health care, and 0.7% for public safety.

Manufacturing construction spending fell 2.2% in July after having increased the previous five months. Despite July’s drop, year-to-date spending was up 31.7% over the same period last year.

July heavy engineering construction spending slumped 0.6% from June to $264.3 billion, while year-to-date spending rose 10.7% from the same period in 2011. June’s spending was revised down $2.0 billion. Thus, June’s decline was revised down from the previously reported 0.2% to a 1.1% fall. Transportation spending, which jumped 1.3%, was the only major heavy engineering area to advance in July.

Private construction spending decreased $6.9 billion in July, a 1.2% drop from June. However, this was only its second time private spending has fallen over the previous 12 months. On a year-to-date basis, private spending advance 15.8% from the same period in 2011.
