State of the Industry - March 2016

South East Queensland continues to perform strongly in all aspects of construction. The boom on multi-residential is set to plateau and detached housing predicted to increase over the coming twelve months. Finding workers is the major issue with a significant shortfall in skilled labor across the industry. The Government training body Construction Skills Queensland ran a workshop that AWCI attended looking at the future needs and identified that there is need for training in 1) new product and new technology construction e.g. new walling systems and 2) supervisory “soft” skills such as communication, people management, planning etc.
