BIS Shrapnel presents a new report on the civil engineering construction sector in Australia.
The report, Engineering Construction in Australia 2012/13 – 2026/2027 is a detailed annual study on the outlook for the engineering construction sector in Australia. The report covers 12 sub-sectors of civil construction from the main transport and utilities infrastructure sectors through to mines and heavy industrial facilities.
While resources investment has been the dominant driver of engineering construction activity in recent years, supported by increased public investment in transport and utilities infrastructure, this sector is facing significant challenges in 2013 as resources-related investment peaks while State and Federal Governments make expenditure cuts.
