Drive construction activity

The total amount of building work available is sliding, leaving large parts of the industry out in the cold – this was already occurring prior to COVID-19. Regional areas are especially hard hit. While government stimulus packages will assist to soften the impact of COVID-19 in the short term, we hold grave concerns about the state of the industry into 2021 and beyond.

  • Commit to spending on new public buildings to a minimum of the 25-year average.
  • Accurate and timely information on the government’s program of building work visible to industry through the Queensland Forward Procurement Pipeline
  • Raise the maximum deposit for domestic building projects to 7.5% to support contractors’ cashflow and their ability to take on construction work.
