8 construction projects to watch in 2022
Priced in the billions, these high-profile, high-impact jobs are expected to hit major milestones in the next year and beyond.
A number of the nation’s largest construction projects are set to start construction, hit major development milestones or otherwise spark interest in 2022.
Priced from the hundreds of millions to the tens of billions, these developments-in-progress are notable for their size, impact and surrounding narratives. Some are highly divisive, some are tied to famous names or companies and others are groundbreaking innovations in manufacturing or transportation. Many are a combination of all of the above.
Below are just a few of the projects Construction Dive is planning to keep an eye on in the year ahead:
Samsung Chip Factory
Austin, Texas Cost: $17 billion
In late November, tech giant Samsung announced that it plans to construct a $17 billion semiconductor fabrication facility in Taylor, Texas, located northeast of Austin, Texas. Samsung intends to start building the factory in 2022, with operations slated to begin in 2024. The company has not yet announced a lead contractor for the project.
The facility’s estimated cost will cover its buildings, property improvements, machinery and equipment, according to Samsung’s announcement . It will be the South Korean firm’s largest investment in the U.S. The company has operated a chip manufacturing facility in Austin since the late 1990s, pictured above, and intends to share infrastructure and resources between the two sites.
The project announcement comes amidst a global shortage of computer chips driven by supply issues related to COVID-19. Samsung is one of many chip manufacturers attempting to geographically diversify its manufacturing operations, according to the AP , and a series of federal funding and tax incentives for semiconductor manufacturing, including the $52 billion CHIPS Act, could spur more investment in chip manufacturing in the U.S. if passed.
California High-Speed Rail
Central Valley Phase Cost: $13.1 billion
The California high-speed rail project , which would be the nation’s first long-distance high-speed rail line once complete, currently encompasses 35 active construction sites across a 119-mile stretch of the Central Valley. The sites are divided across three design-build contracts:
- Construction Package 1, covering 32 miles of construction, led by Tutor-Perini/Zachry/Parsons
- Construction Package 2-3, covering 65 miles of construction, led by Dragados/Flatiron
- Construction Package 4, covering 22 miles of construction, led by California Rail Builders, a joint venture of Ferrovial-Agroman West, LLC and Griffith Company.
According to the State of California’s High-Speed Rail Authority , the system is expected to run from San Francisco to Los Angeles in under three hours via bullet trains moving up to 200 miles per hour. Planned extensions to Sacramento and San Diego would extend the system’s reach over 800 miles with up to 24 stations.
The California High-Speed Rail Authority anticipates environmental clearance for the full Phase 1 San Francisco to LA/Anaheim light rail system by 2023. The current cost estimate for the Central Valley section is $13.1 billion. The first section will run between Merced, California, and Bakersfield, California, with operation expected to begin by December 2028, according to the rail authority’s 2020 business plan . Operation between San Francisco and LA is expected to begin by December 2033.
Arlington/Crystal City, Virginia Cost: More than $2.5 billion
Construction of the first phase of new Amazon HQ2 office space at National Landing, started in January 2020, is on track to finish by 2023 , according to Clark Construction. The contractor expects to top out the office buildings at Metropolitan Park in early 2022, complete facade installation by the summer, and move to develop the 2-acre landscaped courtyard once the buildings are complete.
The Metropolitan Park campus will provide 2.1 million square feet of office space for the online mega-retailer across two 22-story LEED-certified buildings, as well as 50,000 square feet of retail space, to be leased to local small businesses.
Plans for the second phase of construction, PenPlace, face a series of public hearings before Arlington County’s Planning Commission and County Board through the end of 2021 and into 2022. Whiting-Turner is the lead contractor for the second phase, and Amazon anticipates that PenPlace’s first buildings will be complete by 2025.
Buffalo Bills Stadium
Buffalo, New York Cost: Up to $2.1 billion
In August, ahead of the expiration of its lease to play home games at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, the NFL’s Buffalo Bills submitted a plan to the City of Buffalo for a new, $1.4 billion, 60,000-seat stadium to be built by 2027, according to the AP.
Possible locations for the new stadium include Bills’ current site, directly replacing the Highmark Stadium, or a new site in downtown Buffalo, yet to be determined. If constructed at the Bills’ current site, the new stadium would be the 11th most expensive ever built. In downtown Buffalo, it would be the third-most expensive at $2.1 billion. In addition, there would be the cost of relocating residents and businesses.
Last month, engineering firm AECOM completed its preliminary survey of the project and its impact. The company recommended building a new stadium instead of attempting to renovate the 50-year-old Highmark Stadium, owing to the high estimated cost and shorter life span of a renovation. The AECOM report also recommends building in Orchard Park instead of building new in Buffalo.
On Dec. 20, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul stated that she is “confident” that the Bills could reach a deal with the state of New York related to public funding for the stadium’s construction, according to the AP .
Sanborn Solar facility and battery storage
Mojave, California Cost: $1.15 billion
Mortenson and renewable energy developer Terra-Gen broke ground on the Edwards & Sanborn Solar Facility and Battery Storage earlier this year, and expect to complete the project by the end of 2022. The project - located on a combination of private land and a site leased from Edwards Air Force Base - is expected to cost about $1.15 billion, according to Dodge Data & Analytics.
The project is coming online in phases, and a portion of its solar arrays are already in operation, according to Terra-Gen. Once complete, the facility will feature a 1,118-MW solar complex with 2,165 MWh of energy storage capacity - the largest single solar and storage project to reach this stage of development, according to Solar Power World . Energy production is expected to utilize more than 2.5 million solar modules, with over 110,000 lithium-ion battery modules for storage.
The energy generated by the Edwards & Sanborn facility is expected to power more than 158,000 homes and displace more than 307,000 tons of carbon dioxide on an annual basis. First Solar will supply the site’s solar modules, and LG Chem and Samsung will supply the batteries.
U.S./Mexico border wall
Texas Funding: More than $1 billion
Most federal border wall construction was halted on President Biden’s first day in office. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is in the process of canceling all federal contracts related to the wall, and the Department of Homeland Security has begun a series of maintenance and emergency repair projects on its existing portions.
However, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (pictured above in wheelchair) has spearheaded a state-level effort over the past six months to resume the construction of a barrier along the state’s border with Mexico.
The Texas Facilities Commission has chosen a joint venture between Dallas engineering firm Huitt-Zollars and Pittsburgh-based engineering firm Michael Baker International as the project manager for the border wall and associated infrastructure. In November, the TFC awarded Posillico Civil Inc. with a design-build contract for a portion of the border’s infrastructure, including wall construction.
Construction is underway as of Dec. 18, with 880 feet of barrier wall installed in Starr County, Texas. The project’s funding totals more than $1 billion, according to an estimate by the Texas Tribune , and includes $54 million generated through a state-led crowdfunding campaign, the vast majority of which (98%) comes from a single donor, Timothy Mellon, chairman of Pan Am Systems.
Enbridge Line 5 - Great Lakes Tunnel
Michigan Cost: $500 million
In 2018, former Michigan Gov. Rick Perry approved Canadian oil supplier Enbridge’s Great Lakes Tunnel project, which would replace the existing Straits of Mackinac section of the Enbridge Line 5 oil pipeline with new lines buried under the Straits. Enbridge intends to bore as deep as 100 feet below the lakebed in order to install the new pipeline at a projected cost of $500 million.
The Great Lakes Tunnel has been reviewed and approved by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy, and is currently under review by the Michigan Public Service Commission and the Army Corps of Engineers.
In the interim, the fate of Enbridge Line 5 in its current form remains in a legal tug-of-war between Enbridge and authorities in Michigan.
Environmental activists and local tribal authorities oppose the pipeline’s continued operation, and current Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer had campaigned on the promise to shut down the underwater section, which dates back to 1953 and runs directly through the Straits of Mackinac. Gov. Whitmer revoked the easement permitting its operation in November 2020.
While Enbridge states that Line 5 has operated “without incident” at the Straits of Mackinac for more than 65 years, Gov. Whitmer has gone on record to say that Line 5, in its current form, presents “ an unacceptable risk of a catastrophic oil spill in the Great Lakes that could devastate our economy and way of life.”
Nationwide Cost: TBD
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, signed by President Biden in November, introduced a regulatory framework under which hyperloop projects can compete for federal funding for U.S.-based projects.
The Hyperloop concept, popularized by Elon Musk, incorporates a series of vacuum-sealed tubes that can transport passengers and cargo in low-pressure pods at proposed speeds of over 700 miles per hour. Hyperloop projects and test sites are in various stages of progress around the world.
“Hyperloop’s inclusion shows that we’re on the precipice of a new era that will change the way we think about mobility in this country,” Josh Giegel, CEO and Co-Founder of Virgin Hyperloop, said in a press release following the legislation’s passage in the Senate in August.
In West Virginia, development is underway on the Virgin Hyperloop Certification Center . First announced in October 2020, the 800-acre site will include testing facilities, training centers and a certification track for hyperloop technology. Virgin Hyperloop intends to achieve safety certifications by 2025 and begin commercial operations by 2030.
Virgin Hyperloop has an active test track in Las Vegas, and is targeting the Midwest, Missouri, North Carolina, and Texas for potential future hyperloop routes in the US. California-based HyperloopTT has conducted a feasibility study for a hyperloop route in the Great Lakes region, and Swiss-American hyperloop company Swisspod has announced the construction of a test track in Colorado.

The state of construction projects in North America – February 2022
GlobalData's Construction Project Momentum Index shows the state of the construction industry in North America in February 2022.
New figures from GlobalData show that the construction sector in North America is healthier than in most other regions and is continuing to improve.
North America has received an overall score of 0.66 on GlobalData’s February 2022 Construction Project Momentum Index, which provides an assessment of the health of the construction project pipeline at all stages of development from announcement through to completion.
Every construction project in GlobalData's database is assigned a score of between 5 and -5 based on its current progress, a score which is continually updated over time. These are then weighted by the value of each project in order to come to overall scores for countries, regions and sectors.
That score puts North America in 5th place out of 11 regions, and is an increase on its score from January 2022 (0.64) when it ranked in 6th place.
One reason for North America's relatively good performance in the index is its industrial sector, which scores 1.02, putting it in 2nd place out of 11 regions worldwide.
North America's energy & utilities sector, by contrast, has performed somewhat worse, with a score of 0.4 (putting it in 6th place globally).
Within North America, construction projects are proceeding with fewest obstacles in United States, which scores 0.74 in the index. The situation in Canada, however, is somewhat less positive with a score of 0.37.
The improving health of the construction pipeline in North America is partly due to the resolution of issues in the region's industrial sector, which has seen its score on GlobalData's Construction Project Momentum Index rise from 0.74 in January 2022 to 1.02 in February 2022.
The construction sector is also seeing fewer and fewer problems in United States, which has seen its score on the index go from 0.6 in January 2022 to 0.74 in February 2022.
The Construction Project Momentum Index
GlobalData's Construction Project Momentum Index is based on analysis of thousands of individual construction projects around the world.
Each project is continually monitored for updates, with updates indicating progress increasing the project's score while updates indicating delays or cancellations reduce the score. The score always sits between 5, the best possible score, and -5, the worst.
The scores for individual projects are then weighted based on their significance in order to create combined indices for each region or sector.
Events that can reduce a project's score include the project being cancelled or put on hold, delays, the rejection of applications or tender bids or the reducing of the project's scope.
Events that can increase a project's score on the index, by contrast, include the completion or commencement of construction, the awarding of major contracts, or the approval of applications.

Construction Projects in Key US States, 2020 Update - Focus on California, Texas, New York, Florida, Illinois, Washington, Georgia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio
Dublin, Sept. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Construction in Key US States (2020 Update) - Project Insight" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The report is tracks 12,260 construction projects in the US, both in the public and private sector, at all stages of development from announcement to execution; collectively, these projects are valued at US$3.9 trillion. The top 10 selected US states account for nearly 61% of the entire US construction market. With annual expenditure reaching over US$1.4 trillion in 2019, the US construction industry remains one of the largest in the world. Last year, the industry added 5.6% to the US economy and employed 5.3% of the country's total full-time workforce, according to the Bureau Economic Analysis (BEA). Nevertheless, construction output fell from 2.2% in 2018 to -0.1% in 2019 as political and trade tensions between the US and China weighed on economic activity. Other factors contributing to the overall decline in the industry included a lack of skilled labor, expensive land and rising material costs. Among the major states, construction activity declined in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Illinois, while construction growth slowed significantly in Florida, California, Washington and Georgia. In Texas and North Carolina, by contrast, growth remained solid, increasing at an equal rate of 2.8%. Over the past five years, states such as Florida, Georgia, Washington, California and North Carolina have posted fast construction growth, expanding at annual average rates of 7.5%, 6.5%, 5.4%, 4.2% and 4.1% respectively. This was driven in part by an increase in investment in mixed-use properties, which have created significant opportunities in sectors such as residential, commercial, infrastructure and energy and utilities. In Florida, for example, the construction of mixed-use properties has been growing faster than in any other large US state. Other factors supporting this growth were corporate tax cuts as well as state and local authorities' push to raise funds for public works and renewable energy projects via higher gas tax and user fees. Scope
- This report focuses on 10 key states in the US, which are significant in terms of construction output, construction employment, overall size of the economy, population and construction project pipelines.
- The report provides an assessment of the current construction project pipeline by the 10 key selected states based on the CIC project database including analysis on total construction pipeline by sector and stage, projected annual spending on current project pipeline by funding method over the five-year span, as well as analysis on all major projects by value, start and end date, stage of development, funding mechanism, and leading contractors

Construction , Trends
Construction is booming in these four states—are your clients ready.
by Foresight | Sep 16, 2021
The construction industry is a significant contributor to the U.S. economy, responsible for 4.1% of the nation’s gross domestic product and employing 5.3% of the country’s total workforce. While the COVID-19 pandemic stalled many sectors of the economy for a period of months, construction is now booming in several U.S. states.
Foresight , the smart workers compensation option for middle market construction firms, assembled a list of the top four states where the construction industry is showing no signs of slowing any time soon—and guidance on what this means for the risk management discussions you should be having.
- Texas . The Lone Star State employs 104,130 construction laborers, more than any other state in the nation. Texas is also home to the highest number and value — at approximately $152.7 billion — of energy and utilities projects in the U.S. construction project pipeline. Mixed-used developments and infrastructure projects, with values of $67.9 billion and $67.1 billion respectively, also help the Lonestar State earn the number one spot on this list.
- California . The Golden State ranks just below Texas in terms of construction employment with 100,740 laborers working on approximately 1,302 construction projects across the state — at a value of $524.6 billion. California also has more megaprojects, or large-scale complex projects with a high price tag, than any other state in the nation, with 10 of the country’s largest megaprojects, valued at $139.5 billion. Helping California snag the number two spot on this list is the state’s $79 billion bullet train project.
- Florida . The Sunshine State is home to a thriving construction industry, employing 71,830 laborers. One of the largest projects within the state is the bridges and tunnels construction in Fort Walton Beach, with a value of $125.5 billion . Miami is home to several high-value projects , including Virgin Hyperloop One, Resorts World Miami and Turkey Point Complex Nuclear Reactors.
- New York . The Empire State has close to 900 construction projects in the pipeline with a total value of approximately $409 billion. New York employs 58,380 construction laborers across these projects. Major recent and current construction projects in New York include the Second Avenue subway project, Hudson Yard and One Vanderbilt, a staggeringly large office tower that joins the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building.
Booming Business Means Time to Redouble Commitment to Safety
As is true in any high-hazard industry, increasing work volume, number of projects, duration of hours, and other variables that are a result of business growth can jeopardize the most important part of the job—the safety of employees.
The construction industry is, and has long been, one of the most dangerous for workers. In fact, The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that 5,333 workers died on the job in 2019—on average, more than 100 a week or about 15 deaths every day. About 20% (1,061) of worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2019 were in construction—accounting for one in five worker deaths for the year. Your construction clients need special attention and expert handling when it comes to risk management, safety training, injury prevention, and workers compensation coverage.

10 US States Account for Nearly 60% of Construction Market, Report Says
Large contractors are always on the hunt for the locations with the most amount of work and, according to a new report, they don’t have to really spread too thin to have a chance at most of it.
A research company named GlobalData recently released a report called “Project Insight – Construction in Key US States,” in which they explain the results of tracking 11,208 construction projects across the United States.
Amazingly, the firm found that only 10 total states account for nearly 60% of the entire US construction market:
3. New York
10. North Carolina
Not many of the states on the list should be a huge surprise, as most of them are leaders in energy and public works projects. As of May 2019, California has the most projects and project value, according to the report, thanks to their large number of megaprojects in transport infrastructure and energy and utilities projects.
Texas is the leader in energy and utilities projects, but they also have a large number of mixed use developments and infrastructure projects.
Florida, Georgia, and Washington are experiencing the largest construction growth over the past 5 years, with annual average growth rates of 9.9%, 8.7%, and 6%, respectively.
The report states that construction output grew from 3.4% in 2017 to 4.4% in real gross terms. They attributed that increase to a combination of recent corporate tax cuts and state and local governments increased efforts to raise money for public works projects.
