Building activity in Australia has moved into a new growth era, with residential building leading the way. Selected states and sectors will outperform others over the next 5 years, making it imperative to sift through the myriad of competing opportunities.

Given record low interest rates and high population growth, will the peak in this cycle break previous records? How big is Australia’s structural shift to apartments? Are alterations and additions fading with the baby boomers, or will Generation X out-renovate their parents? Where will the next boom in non-residential building come from? We list commercial projects across 12 sectors including offices, retail, hotels, education and aged care.

Building in Australia provides:

  • Annual forecasts of building activity to 2019, taking into account the building cycle, then two five-year average forecasts for the ten years to 2029, which will give an assessment of the long-term underlying demand for each building sector in light of long-term economic and demographic trends
  • Analysis of the economic environment and projections, including interest rates
  • Analysis of trends in demographic factors and their impact on the underlying demand for dwelling and non-dwelling building
  • Forecasts of the value of building commencements by state, in current and constant prices, including total dwellings, alterations and additions to dwellings and non-dwelling building
  • Forecasts of dwelling approvals, commencements and completions for houses and other dwellings (flats, units and town houses) covering private and government sectors for each state
  • Forecasts of median house prices for each capital city
  • Forecasts of the value of non-dwelling building commencements in constant prices by state for each sector: offices, shops, hotels, factories, education, health, religion, entertainment, recreation and other
