Construction Megaprojects

Note from the editor

Megaprojects are exactly what they sound like; massive projects with long construction timelines and hefty price tags — specifically, a megaproject is one that costs $1 billion or more. From stadiums to railways, airports to factories and mixed-use projects to multifamily developments, megaprojects dominate their space and eventually deliver instant landmarks.

With the coronavirus slowing all kinds of construction, megaprojects have soldiered on by rushing to the finish line before the beginning of the NFL regular season, or starting up rapidly following the end of construction shutdowns — if contractors faced shutdowns at all.
