By spring, he expects to be so busy that his office will need the new staff.</p><p>“What we’ve been observing, which is a trend for 21 months especially on the commercial side, is a slow climb out of the depths of the recession,” Bartl says.</p> Thu, 06 Dec 2012 14:14:11 +0000 Ben Bradford 17125 at http://wfae.org A Sign Of Surging Construction In Mecklenburg
