We understand that it is essential to periodically review our ‘platforms' to ensure they meet the changing needs of the industry.
2003, began a decade long boom in mining and oil & gas infrastructure development - particularly in WA and QLD. This area of infrastructure development has more recently been in decline, but is forecast to return to modest growth in 2018.
The real driver of growth over the next decade will be public infrastructure projects, including essential infrastructure renewal, energy, transport and telecommunications infrastructure that will transform Australia's future.
There's also the rapidly developing and changing landscape in terms of implementing technology and the demands on industry to constantly increase efficiency, productivity and safety. All this, promises to make the need for quality information more essential than ever.
The relentless quest for smart infrastructure, technology integration, BIM, autonomous vehicles, drones, robotics, site safety, operator skills and 3D printing will make the next decade the most dynamic for the civil construction and infrastructure sector to-date.
Inside Construction's purpose is to keep the industry informed on what matters to contractors, engineers and suppliers. To provide a deep look inside the innovations and actions that shape infrastructure today and into the future. But, most importantly, we want to help the industry confidently address the challenges of building a better Australia.
Inside Construction - ready for the next decade.
