Happy Monday! We hope you had a great holiday. Here are three things to know this morning:

  1. In Detroit and southeast Michigan, major construction projects to begin in 2015 will help create jobs and fuel the economy.

  2. In 2014, Minneapolis experienced $2 billion in new construction (60% more than in 2013). The construction of the Vikings Stadium and the Wells Fargo Downtown East development, two publicly subsidized projects, helped stimulate this boom.

  3. Using drones on the job site will revolutionize the construction industry.
