Multi-Storey Building Sector

|Description:||The Steel - Framing the Future project findings, addressing the multi-storey building sector, have the unmistakeable ring of a call for industry reform. Robust investigation of the status of the steel construction industry over two and a half years has revealed a sector that is well behind its counterparts in the US, UK and New Zealand, with dwindling skills and average capabilities. To contrast the Australian industry's status quo with, for example, the UK, is to understand that ignoring the call for reform signals the nation's divestment of what could be a thriving, innovative industry with export potential. The report covers skills analysis, industry analysis (including a comparison between Australia and the UK), alternatives, project management issues, sustainability and recommendations.|
