Great news for our construction trades students. According to the latest report from the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, home construction in the Harrisburg area is on the rise. In fact, it’s the highest it’s been in Dauphin County since 2005!
The report says 930 building permits were issued in the county last year, nearly double the 2013 and 2014 totals. Unemployment is also relatively low and average household incomes in the Harrisburg area are better than many parts of the state, resulting in strong demand from buyers in higher price ranges.
This is fantastic news for many of our new residential carpentry and electrician students as these jobs will be in high demand when they graduate. Learn how KTI can help prepare you for this hot market.
