>> DATA TRENDS 20 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | July 2015 e Dodge Momentum Index fell to 118.3 (2000=100) in June, down 1.3 percent from 119.9 in May, according to Dodge Data & Analytics. e Momentum Index is a monthly measure of the first (or initial) report for nonresidential building projects in planning, which have been shown to lead construction spending for nonresidential buildings by a full year. With the June decline, the Index continued its lackluster performance thus far in 2015, and is now up just 2.2 percent when compared to June 2014. Of the two major building sectors covered by the Index, commer- cial building has recently shown the most loss of momentum, sliding 2.6% in June.
