JULY 2017 – BUILDING PERMITS UPDATE
ICI permit values in Hamilton more than doubled in January-May compared to the same period last year, up 146% overall. The growth in ICI permits was driven by Hamilton’s Woodward Avenue Wastewater Treatment Plant project, which was issued an $88 million permit in May. Hamilton’s industrial permit values which often account for less than 10% of permit activity, grew to a third of total ICI permit value. Institutional permit values in January-May nearly tripled in Hamilton compared to the same period last year. Commercial permit values increased by 13%.
