Big projects are on the cards for Tasmania which is pushing up the value of construction work – estimated to be 11.9 per cent higher this year.
June construction projects were worth $3.543 billion, according to Deloitte Access Economics in its June Investment Monitor report.
The report also highlighted the federal government’s commitment to replacing the Bridgewater Bridge. It includes a new bridge along the Derwent River which will have 4 lanes and a shared pedestrian and cyclist path.
The development which will cost around $576 million would become the largest single engineering project in the state.
Commercial construction on the other hand has slowed since its boom between 2016 and mid-2017.
While the construction activity and planned activities are welcomed by the industry, it’s important that newbies are aware of a mandatory federal requirement which calls for everyone on a building site to complete general construction safety training, commonly known as the White Card course.
