KAMLOOPS — June was a big month for the Kamloops building sector — but much of the credit goes to two individual projects.

The City of Kamloops says June saw $23.1 million in permit activity.

A single permit was taken out for a $10 million apartment building, and another permit was taken out for an $8 million condo complex.

The June total was 74 per cent higher than the same month in 2017.

For the year to date, the local construction sector is running 77 per cent higher than last year at the same time.
