The Construction sector is made up of businesses in building and construction, and the construction trades that support the industry.
The sector includes 383,300 businesses and contractors, and employs 1,181,200 people.
Construction is a large employing industry and many new jobs have been added over the past five years. Technicians and trades account for over half of those employed. There are few disruptive threats to jobs in the Construction sector.
Opportunity & Threat
Many structures popping up all over the world—from skyscrapers to bridges—are designed and built using Building Information Modelling (BIM), a 3D-modelling process that is transforming the architecture, engineering, and construction industry.
With the evolution of parametric modelling and reality capture, structural data is becoming increasingly rich and complex, saving time and money in project preparations while preventing errors and expensive change orders.
