Building trade booms

Park City’s construction industry in 2006 is booming compared to the numbers recorded through June 2005, City Hall’s Building Department reports.

According to the Building Department, at the end of June, the department had recorded a little less than $89.2 million in construction. The figure is significantly outpacing the little less than $48.2 that had been tallied by the same time in 2005.

The department says single-family homes were especially valuable in June, when 17 such permits were issued, worth a little less than $7.7 million. One duplex and two multi-family buildings received permits in June. Two industrial buildings, worth a combined $2.4 million, also received permits.

In June, 160 building permits were issued, valued at a little less than $31.6 million combined, outpacing May’s numbers and those of the previous June.

The number of electrical permits, plumbing permits and mechanical permits was up from the previous year and about the same as in May.

The department’s inspection schedule, an average of 184.64 per day, was up from May and almost triple that of June 2005, when the daily average was 67.69.
