Stability key to success

July 23, 2015.

According to the Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) 2nd quarter 2015 Oceania Report, the strength of the overall construction market is reflected in stable Tender Price Index uplifts.

Even with the fluctuations in volumes of work being undertaken within the many sectors throughout the building and construction industry, stable pricing is being seen in most markets.

Most key cities are seeing construction prices reflecting CPI type increases, due to a rationalisation of head contractors, strength of the residential market (which is very price sensitive), and a movement of workers and sub-contractors from mining work to residential and commercial projects.
