Is COVID-19 construction’s Uber moment?

Thursday 11 Feb 2021

SoCLA webinar presented by Jon Davies, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Constructors Association.

Governments are relying heavily on the construction industry to lead the economy out of recession but the industry is sick. Profitability is at an all-time low and productivity growth over the last thirty years trails that of other significant industries by 25 per cent. Women make up only 12 per cent of the construction workforce and construction workers are 6 times more likely to die from suicide than a workplace incident.

Could a global pandemic provide a long awaited catalyst for real and lasting change to how projects are procured and delivered?

Join the Australian Constructors Association’s Chief Executive Officer, Jon Davies, as he shares his thoughts on the opportunity for change, the form it could take and what it might mean for contracts.
