Contribution of the Industrial Real Estate Sector to the Canadian Economy
[52 Pages]

This report focuses on one component of the broader commercial real estate sector: the industrial real estate sector. The report takes a comprehensive approach to assessing the economic contribution in 2013 associated with key activities in the life cycle of an industrial building, including:

• The construction of new industrial buildings (or major additions) including the planning and site development, hard costs (actual construction activity, such as materials and equipment) and soft costs (architecture and design, finance, consulting activities);

• Improvements to industrial buildings, which is the construction spending on an ongoing basis for capital improvements to buildings and tenant improvements (the construction associated with accommodating the requirements of new tenants); and
• The ongoing operations of industrial buildings, including building management (maintenance, leasing) and brokerage.
