Construction industry in Perth

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me the current state of the construction industry in Perth?

I am a 47 year old contracts manager in the UK looking to relocate ( already have a permanent visa) .  Is the job market a dead loss? Is it true that my age would go against me?  

Any advice would be appreciated.

House prices seem to be ticking up a little in Perth, so I guess that is a good sign.

There's a fair bit going on, lots of apartments being built. If your experience is good I don't think your age will be a factor.

Don't know anything about that mate. I know the WA government are bringing forward millions of dollars worth of road and rail development and there are grants galore if you're building new property or renovating.

I just googled new mine in WA and it looks like Rio have a big new find and there's lots going on. Price of Iron Ore has been really high lately so the companies will be swimming in cash.

Here's a good link for info.

It's good to know that there is a bit of activity out there, thanks for your replies.  Does anyone know how the commercial side of construction is, or if there is investment in schools and hospitals etc
