Hotel Construction Projected to be Strong Through 2017

It’s all good if you’re in the hotel business.

Occupancy rates in the U.S. are expected to remain at record levels through 2017, according to PKF Hospitality Research|CBRE Hotels, which also projects room rates to increase by 5.5% and 5.8%, respectively, this year and next.

With demand exceeding supply, developers are expected to deliver 103,230 hotel rooms in 865 projects in 2016, according to the latest Comprehensive Pipeline Summary from the market research firm STR.

Through November 2015, the existing supply of hotel rooms nationwide stood at 5,031,859. A total of 457,606 rooms were under construction or in various planning stages.

For all the talk about the rise in demand and construction of luxury hotels, STR foresees the greatest number of hotel rooms—53,725 rooms—being delivered in the “upper midscale” classification, followed by 43,150 “upscale” room deliveries. Conversely, STR estimates that only 15 luxury hotels with 3,468 rooms are expected to open this year.

New York, with an existing supply of 117,367 rooms, leads the nation with 80 hotels and 13,583 rooms under construction, followed by Houston (with 79,255 existing rooms and 6,269 under construction), Dallas (79,572; 4,361), Los Angeles/Long Beach (98,186; 4,240), and Washington, D.C. (107,776; 3,949).

Jan Freitag, STR’s Senior Vice President of Lodging Insights, told USA Today that while room construction was up 21% over a year ago, the 1.5% increase in rooms opening in 2016 would still be below the longer-term annual average of 1.9%

Along from rising customer demand, hotel construction is being driven by room rate appreciation. For example, in Greater Sacramento, Calif., where hotel occupancy rates exceed 77% and where at least 19 hotels are under construction, the average room rates set a record in October at $116.67 per night, up 10.6% from a year earlier, according to PKF Consulting.

However, there’s always the concern that booms will eventually overheat some markets. In Central Dallas, where at least 14 hotels are slated to open between fall 2015 and the end of 2018, investors were bullish about their projects but wondered just how many rooms the market could absorb. 

“I can’t remember when we’ve ever had that influx of hotel rooms, certainly in recent history,” said John Crawford, who heads Downtown Dallas Inc., which advocates for downtown development. “And I’ve been in this market for the last 35 years.”

Contract Staffing to Grow 6% in U.S.

The U.S. contract staffing industry has been forecast to grow 6% in 2015 according to the "U.S. Staffing Industry Forecast" released by Staffing Industry Analysts in April. The increased usage of temp staffing is prevalent across all industries, but is rapidly rising in popularity within architecture, engineering and construction firms.

What is driving this trend?

There are external factors like the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and increases in administrative and insurance costs which are driving incremental adoption of temporary staffing, however contract staffing is being used as a competitive advantage to the AEC industry for other reasons.

Yep, I said it. The word that keeps us in the office long hours during the day and unable to sleep when we get home. Deadlines loom and Murphy's Law generally applies. Contract staffing can fill short term needs with highly qualified talent to help keep projects on time and clients, and bosses, happy.

Winning New Work:
Has your firm ever been awarded a new project you never imagined would be won? It is not uncommon. When AEC firms need to build new teams quickly, the assistance of a staffing agency can help you ramp up on short notice.

Scaling Up & Down as Needed:
Say goodbye to seasonal spikes or workload fluctuation nightmares. Contract staffing services can help architects, engineers, and construction companies adjust to accommodate your backlog. Manage the demands of your business by quickly increasing or downsizing your workforce.

Try Before You Buy:
Ever had a candidate embellish in an interview? Ever made a bad hire? Didn't think so. But just in case, AEC firms like observing and evaluating performance before making a permanent hiring decision. Contract staffing can be leveraged as an effective hiring strategy to test a potential employee's fit.


AEC Resources specializes in providing top talent to architecture, engineering, and construction companies through temp staffing services. By focusing on the AEC industry, we have a deep understanding of your unique business needs. With a refreshingly new approach to supplementing your workforce, including free technical training for all our employees, we have become a staffing solutions provider to AEC firms nationwide.
