The NSW construction industry is marked by a high rate of industry growth (exceeding the other states). Residential construction is set to increase, driving a demand for construction managers and engineers, both of which categories show high growth opportunities and demand. Significant construction works include several major urban infrastructure projects such as the North West rail link and the Western Sydney light rail; energy projects like power plants and a few significant commercial building projects like Barangaroo.
Sydney, as Australia’s largest urban and commercial centre has the nation’s highest demand for residential and non-residential construction. In consequence, Sydney is home to 35.2% of Australia’s construction managers. In addition, several major urban infrastructure upgrades such as the North-West rail link and the Western Sydney light rail will increase demand for construction engineers.
