Queensland budget 2022-23 (commercial construction)

Like the rest of Australia, Queensland’s construction industry faces rising material costs, project delays and other logistical challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s been a tough year for many of us. Despite this, the building industry has continued to support the state economy and this contribution has paid off: Queensland presents annual growth rates that surpass the national average.  How does the construction sector benefit from the Queensland budget 2022-23?  Building and infrastructure spending At a glance: The 2022-23 budget delivers funding for new houses, schools and hospitals, but the bulk of capital spending is for transport infrastructure. What funding is there for building properties and general infrastructure? $200 million will go towards building high-level shared infrastructure services; while also increasing housing in priority development areas. This investment will support the growing numbers of people choosing to live in Queensland, which is experiencing its highest interstate migration rates in almost 20 years!  Demand for land is particularly strong in Southeast Queensland, according to Minister for Planning Steven Miles. As such, a new Growth Acceleration Fund will develop essential infrastructure in that region. “The new Growth Acceleration Fund will focus on growth areas in South East Queensland including the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay, Brisbane,...

Safety in construction (sites and workplaces)

Safety in construction must be a top priority for our industry, given the hazardous nature of our work.  We’re so often doing strenuous physical labour, using heavy machinery, scaling heights and handling dangerous tools.  There have been improvements over the past two decades, but there’s some indication the number of incidents are starting to creep up again. Sadly, many companies continue to ignore site safety laws that are designed to protect workers. Last year, for example, one company was fined $320,000 over the tragic death of a teenager who fell 12 metres due to numerous hazards, and hadn’t completed training to work at heights.  Many leaders in the industry are calling for reform. We’ll explore their suggestions soon, but first, let’s look at some of the data from recent years. Note: this article focuses on physical safety in construction, rather than mental health (we’ve written about that here).  Construction safety statistics Australia  How common are fatal workplace accidents?  First, the good news:  The number of workplace deaths has fallen since 2007, when there was a peak (310 deaths). But businesses can’t afford to get complacent about safety in construction. There’s some indication that fatality numbers have started to creep up again in recent years....

Commercial construction spending Australia (budget 2022-23)

A few weeks ago, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg delivered the federal budget to a nation reeling from the global pandemic, economic shock and devastating floods.  This budget has attracted even more attention than usual, leading up to the national election in May. Our construction sector has been shielded from the worst of the lockdown repercussions, but there are still project delays, material shortages, price hikes and job losses. Does the 2022-23 budget go far enough to alleviate this pain for an industry that’s the backbone of the economy?  Yes and no. There’s good reason to celebrate another year of record spending on new and existing infrastructure projects.  Businesses can also look forward to wage subsidies that support the training of apprentices who are needed to fill labour shortages.  And many construction businesses will benefit from proposed tax breaks for digital solutions that boost productivity. However, some announcements have been met with mixed responses in the industry. Let’s explore the main budget promises for Australia’s commercial construction sector. Another year of record infrastructure spending The government will pump $17.9 billion into road and rail infrastructure projects across Australia over ten years.  In addition to this: $7.4 billion for regional water infrastructure projects over 12 years $1.3...

Construction outlook 2022 (Australia)

As Australia reopens its borders to international tourists for the first time in nearly two years, there’s hope we’ve finally got a handle on COVID-19. It’s been a stressful period for people from all walks of life, and the building industry hasn’t been immune from the challenges. But mercifully, it looks as though some sense of normalcy is returning, as many restrictions ease. Let’s reflect on what the Australian construction industry can expect for 2022 and beyond (we’re focusing on commercial infrastructure and property sectors).  2022 gets underway To begin, it appears we’re off to a marginally slower-than-expected start thanks to the COVID restrictions of 2021. A 2.2 per cent expansion is now expected, instead of the previous growth forecast of 2.3 per cent put forward by a leading research firm. Thankfully the construction sector is the backbone of the economy, bringing in $3 for every dollar spent on projects. The federal government alone is pouring $110 billion into the 10-year infrastructure pipeline, on top of significant allocations from several state governments. In particular, road and rail projects will benefit from a record investment of $36 billion from 2022 to 2024.  This should significantly support industry output, as long as the pandemic remains relatively...

Construction waste management Australia (barriers & solutions)

We may have nowhere to dump our trash in less than five years.  Alarmingly, most of Australia’s landfills are expected to be full by 2025. Across the nation, 30 per cent of waste is sent to landfill every year. The building industry accounts for more than one third of this pie, which doesn’t taste good. It’s avoidable too. The vast majority of building waste in landfill is actually clean, excavated material that can be recycled. Think of bricks, concrete, clay, metals and timber. Not only does the pollution harm our planet, but building companies essentially pour money down the drain to dispose of old materials (landfill levis can be high). There’s also the staggering cost of timber, bricks and other new materials, thanks to ongoing supply shortages. Paul Bidwell, Deputy CEO of Master Builders, predicts that supply issues will continue into 2022.  “The implications are dire. So far, we’ve not heard of any builders going to the wall as a result; but, based on conversations we’re having with builders, it will happen, most likely early in the new year,” he said. What does this have to do with trash on building sites? Sustainable construction waste management isn’t a magic antidote to high building costs,...

Tradies from around Australia flock to Queensland

For nearly two years, our national building sector has navigated the highs and lows of Australia’s response to a global health crisis.  There have been many difficulties, but some opportunities too. This article focuses on a few recent updates for the Queensland construction industry. First, let’s start with the bad news: we’re all connected... Queensland construction hasn’t been shielded from the challenges of the pandemic, despite the fact that our state has avoided the lengthy lockdowns that hit NSW, Victoria and the ACT. Our construction sector is still experiencing the domino effect of delayed imports and material shortages from further up the supply chain – which means higher costs for us. Did you know the cost of materials across Australia has soared by up to 10 per cent? To add insult to injury, copper and iron ore prices are the highest they’ve ever been.  This is according to the second quarter 2021 International Report by Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB). “Material price rises have occurred for concrete, steel, timber, masonry product supplies and PVC based products used in hydraulic and electrical trades. The raw material prices for metals such as copper and iron ore are reaching record heights. Such rises are prompting trades to link...

COVID-19 guidelines for the construction sector (Australia)

Many Australians are feeling anxious, as COVID-19 numbers rise across the nation. In some parts of the country, construction workers are required to navigate new rules based on their location. There are penalties for those who don’t comply.  It can be confusing to keep track of regulations that are constantly shifting to contain the spread! This guide summarises the main guidelines for construction workers in each state and territory.  At the time of writing this article, three regions are in lockdown: New South Wales, Victoria and ACT. We’ve put together a basic guide, but please regularly check official government websites for the most current information, as this situation is rapidly evolving and may have changed when you read this. Please note: your business may be eligible for a disaster payment from the Federal government, if you haven’t been able to work due to public health orders.  We also include information about localised support in each section below. New South Wales (NSW) Status: lockdown Construction work is allowed to continue on building sites in: Greater Sydney Regional and rural NSW (note: construction sites in the Central Coast and Shellharbour LGAs now fall under this category). Rules for construction sites in Greater Sydney: A COVID-safety plan...

Brisbane Olympics 2032 (plans for infrastructure)

Tokyo has just closed the Olympic Games, as viewers watched on from home. Many Aussies are already looking forward to 2032, when Brisbane will put on its own show for the world. Although this is 11 long years away; planning has started to ensure these Games deliver an expected $8 billion in economic benefits to the state. Our construction sector has a mammoth task ahead, there’s no doubt about that. But we also have one advantage that was never afforded to previous hosting nations. Queensland has been given the longest time to prepare for their Olympic and Paralympic Games: John Davies, CEO of Australian Constructors Association, says this is an incredible opportunity for the government and private sector to work together to show off Queensland; while setting the construction industry on a more sustainable path. “Queensland will be the first host nation to deliver an Olympic Games within budget if it engages early with industry to get the planning right,” Mr Davies said. “The Olympics really gives us the chance to think big and to create a new legacy that will build Queensland’s workforce capability and capacity and innovation. We need to plan the right infrastructure and appropriately stage it so we can efficiently...
