The Construction Industry – Beyond Covid

What a rough few years it has been for everyone. Nobody foresaw Covid coming along and plunging the world into disruption. Many industries have suffered due to upheaval caused by illness, restrictions and lockdowns. But the great news is that the construction industry, and in particular the building and plumbing industries in Victoria, have continued to grow despite Covid challenges.

The Victorian construction industry has experienced significant growth, with an 86.3 per cent increase in the value of building works and 31 per cent increase in the number of building permits issued.

In response, the Victorian Building Authority (VBA) has launched a new strategy called Vision27, providing a focus for the next five years. It aims to deliver on three key public value outcomes – safe and resilient buildings, communities reaching their potential and a confident and thriving industry.

This year will also see the publication of the National Construction Code (NCC) 2022 that will have a positive impact on the industry. Some of the changes will include a focus on expanding accessible housing, dealing with risks associated with lead in plumbing products and an improvement in energy productivity with a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

So what does all this mean for you?

There has never been a better time to join the construction industry. Not only is it one of the few industries to thrive through Covid, but it’s also filled with opportunity. There are many career paths available, from on the tool jobs to supervising and project management roles.
