Construction Skills Queensland
Building and construction is Queensland’s third largest industry by employment (ABS 2016) and largest by gross value-add, with tens of thousands of businesses across the state. The industry has benefited from the mining and infrastructure boom of the past 20 years, showing great capacity to ramp up and deliver high-quality projects in a high-pressure environment. Notable achievements include South-East Queensland’s water grid, Brisbane’s tunnels, liquefied natural gas (LNG) pipelines from the Surat Basin, major freight and passenger rail upgrades across the state, and post-flood reconstruction.
The construction industry is a key driver of the Queensland economy. It currently employs around 217,000 people and accounts for 11.1% of the Queensland economy – the largest contribution to total state output.
