Mining Construction Outlook Continues to Grow

Posted: 31/05/2012 5:00:00 AM by Kyla Jones, Site Director, AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs

A recent survey of over 100 companies employing 74,000 people in the Australian construction industry reports significant growth that can be attributed to the resources industry. Both mining and heavy industrial construction are forecast to increase by over 20% in 2012 and 2013. As with other sectors of the mining industry, meeting the demand for skilled workers is creating pressure for business.

The Construction Outlook report produced by the Australian Industry Group in association with the Australian Constructors Association provides an excellent measure of the state of non-residential building sectors.


Main sectors of growth

Mining infrastructure work is going to be largely responsible for the dramatic increase in growth over the next two years. Heavy industrial construction including mineral processing along with oil and gas processing adds to the overall contribution of the resources sector.


What this means for jobseekers

Anyone with a skilled trade suitable for work in the construction industry is going to be in demand over the next several years. Projects including rail, roads, pipelines, mineral plants, chemical plants, and oil refineries are all going to contribute to the need for more skilled workers. As the resource boom continues in Australia, it’s important to remember many of the jobs on offer will be located in the construction industry.
