The construction industry is booming and Mirvac's answer to the tradie shortage currently being experienced are prefab walls, which have been proven to cut residential construction times by at least 10 weeks. New to Australia (but used in the UK for decades), this product may create further job anxiety for tradies who have recently protested against Australia's free trade agreement with China, with concerns regarding safety standards. Hopefully the residential sector continues the strong growth already shown this year, providing an abundance of work for industry workers.
