COVID-19 and Construction
COVID-19 and Construction
Australia’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly managed to save a lot of lives, but successfully navigating the crisis has come at a cost, a lot of which is yet to borne by the Australian economy.
The construction industry is no stranger to downturns and slumps, but even with government stimulus packages, recovery is going to be an uphill battle. Given that 1 in 10 Australians rely on the construction industry for employment, a plan for revitalizing that sector would go a long way to fast tracking recovery efforts for the economy.
The construction industry runs on a wide array of skillsets, from labourers to engineers and project managers, so any stimulus package aimed at this sector would go a long way to getting a major portion of the currently unemployed labour market back to work.
Members of the Civil Contractors Federation (CCF) participated in a survey that revealed the civil infrastructure sector has the capacity to take on more projects. The sector has the ability to tender for more civil construction projects, with a high chance that more workers will be employed.
Ainsley Simpson, Chief Executive Officer of CCF National, stated the results of the survey indicate a “significant capacity” for construction companies to offer assistance in economic recovery to the Federal government. “All infrastructure – urban and regional, large and small, new and aging, – can deliver more for our communities.”
