LF Driscoll Co.

Stulb, the General Building Contractors Association's 2014 chairman of the board, says the construction market is heating up for contractors in the Philadelphia area. He says many developers are getting more active, especially in the multifamily sector. "A lot of these are sizable mid-rise or high-rise projects," he adds.

With the pickup in activity, Stulb says contractors are seeing increased competition for project managers and project engineers. Subcontractor capacity also could become an issue as more large projects break ground.
