The Gold Coast’s construction scene is looking pretty healthy with an estimated $5.5 billion in construction activity projected over the next 12 months. 200 construction projects have already been confirmed for delivery over the next 2-3 years and gives Tradies strong positivity for continued demand providing for the industry. 
CSQ CEO, Brett Schimming, spoke at an industry launch on the Gold Coast in September announcing that “The major project pipeline is valued at between $4 billion (committed) and $14.8 billion (committed + potential) over the coming years.” 
“With the majority of these projects being residential construction projects, CSQ predicts continued strong demand for a wide range of building trades workers, including carpenters, electricians and plumbers.” 
“Large residential projects like the Jewel Surfers Paradise, Gainsborough Greens and the Arundal Springs Masterplan are typical of the kinds of works that will be driving activity,” says Mr Schimming.
