The construction industry literally builds Australia.

It represents 8% of total GDP, employs more than 1.1 million people, and is growing at an unprecedented rate.

Yet traditional media rarely give it the coverage it deserves.

Unless there is a new mega-project or a serious safety incident, construction news is relegated to the real-estate section.

Here at Construction Advisor we know construction and we’re here to bring you the news, data, and breadth of information you need when you need it, to keep abreast of what is happening.
