Winter commercial construction slowdown brings new opportunities

TRADES Corp. is remaining active in the recruitment of new trades workers and the marketing to new customers, as the annual winter commercial construction slowdown is upon us.

It is understandable that in the northern segment of the country, the winter cold and snow would produce a commercial construction moderation of activity. It has always been a mystery to TRADES Corp. why the near perfect winter weather conditions of the desert southwest would not produce an acceleration of construction activity.

Yet once again, in early December, we seem to find the annual deceleration of commercial activity upon us. Notwithstanding the slowdown, TRADES Corp. views this as an opportunity to speak with new tradesmen, and market to new customers.
