2013 sets record for Amarillo building permits2013 sets record for Amarillo building permitshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=53062014-01-09T06:56:00Z2014-01-09T00:00:00Z

AMARILLO - The City of Amarillo permitted $500.7 million in building projects during 2013, increasing 12 percent from 2012 and surpassing a previous record of $454.8 million in 2005.

In 2013, roofing contractors launched $177.3 million in residential repairs and $45.9 million in commercial jobs due to a hailstorm in May. The number is roofing-specific, not including window or other hail-induced repairs. Combined, those projects comprise nearly 45 percent of value of all projects launched in the city.

Contractors launched construction of 472 houses in 2013 worth $122.3 million, down from the 530 houses with a combined construction value of $131 million in 2012.

The $73.5 million in 2013 commercial new construction falls far below the $211.4 million in new business projects permitted in 2012, but several large 2012 projects such as an expansion at Bell Helicopter skew year-over-year comparisons.
