We are a midsized EC in the Northeast and have just experianced the worst work slowdown in 4 years. Almost a 50% drop in revinue.
Wondering if any other EC's from around the country (large or small) have had this same experiance.
We do both residental and commerical service.

My January and February were slow, but March and April made up for it, so I'm back on track. I expect a large commercial project to be in gear in 30 days, which will keep me busy the rest of the year.

Hang in there, and stick with the business that got you here.

In Michigan things seem to be picking up, although 2 very large contractors have gone under in the last 6 months. I have alot of prints comming in, but there seem to be alot of low bidders comming in latley.
