The engineering and construction sector has been identified as one of Australia’s top five core sectors which have been experiencing massive growth in recent years. But the money’s not flowing due to the mining boom anymore—now it’s flowing thanks to a large scale infrastructure boom. And it’s likely to continue booming as governments outsource major infrastructure projects and public sector capital expenditure rises.
According to BCI Economics, the total construction projects market (building and civil engineering, excluding detached housing and mining/oil/gas) is projected to grow by 8.2% over this financial year. Civil engineering construction (infrastructure, transport and utilities) has been “the significant growth engine for the industry” with a whopping 96% improvement in 2017 on previous years, falling back to an improvement of 24.5% for 2018, with significant growth forecast to continue. Aged Care & Accommodation is one sub-sector which is boosting economists’ confidence.
The industry has seen the creation of 12,000 new roles last year, up 26%, and by increased skilled immigration (57% of engineers are born overseas). Most in demand are Civil and Structural Engineer roles, then Electrical/Electrical Engineering roles. In response to the need to work on a wide variety of projects, multi-disciplinary consultancy firms have also emerged, creating still more opportunities for candidates.
