February sees extremely high building numbers

Last month’s issuance of the final building permit for the new hospital has dramatically skewed comparisons of building numbers in Fort St. John.

February’s total value of construction is $271,146,000.

That’s nearly 33 times the total for the same month last year, which was just over $8 million.

However, all but $546,000 of last month’s total was for the new hospital permit, which was worth $270,600,000.

That’s nearly 12 times more than the last big local commercial permit issued for the Enerplex, for just over $23 million dollars, in March of 2008.

In addition, the 2011 two-month total value of construction in the city is nearly six times last year’s 12-month total, which was $46,455,000.

While not quite as dramatic, there is also an eye-popping difference in the year-over-year city revenue numbers.

So far this year, the building permits have generated $506,620 for city hall.

That is nearly 16 times more than the $31,792 generated in the first two months of 2010.

It is also more than double the full 12-month total last year, which was $231,437.
