With the COVID-19 pandemic, political divisiveness, civil unrest, and an economic recession, 2020 was one of the most tumultuous years in modern U.S. history. As uncertainty and fear radiated across the nation and around the world, many Americans upended their lives almost overnight. The fortunate retreated to their homes, which have become havens of not only shelter but also work and recreation. As people hunkered down and safety precautions took hold, business and leisure travel all but ceased, and traditional gathering and entertainment venues, such as theaters, concert halls, and even restaurants, went dark. The architecture, engineering, and construction market reflected this roller-coaster year with significant declines in some sectors and notable increases in others. With 2021 bringing continued uncertainty to the market, analysts predict that recovery is on the horizon in 2022.
