Australia’s Gold Coast construction workforce is set to grow by more than 10,000 over the next nine years, according to a new industry report.
Construction Skills Queensland predicts residential construction to rise to 63 per cent of all construction activity by 2018, while forecasts commercial construction to rise to 20 per cent.
“Residential construction is really strong and there is a high demand for concreters, electricians and steel fixers,” said CSQ chief executive, Brett Schimming. “However, it is not just one area with construction going well across all sectors, residential, commercial and civil.”
Mr Schimming further announced that now is the time for construction workers to upskill and for the industry to focus on making sure apprentices and qualified workers are exposed to the correct training to ensure progression in their chosen trade.
