The current ENR Construction Industry Confidence Index (CICI) dropped to 36 which is 20 points lower than the previous quarter, and the lowest point since Q2 2010. The CICI measures executive sentiment of the current market and where it will be in the next three to six months and over a 12-18 month period. A rating of 50 or higher shows a growing market, and we are far from that. The senior housing sector is in better shape than many other sectors, as there have been significant drops in the hospitality, entertainment, retail, office, and petroleum sectors.
