Australia’s construction industry undoubtedly brings immense benefit to the economy and the prosperity of many Australians, as an employer to one of the largest workforces. However, like most industries, the past year events have placed pressure on the sector, requiring organisations to adapt, with its wider long-term impacts still unknown. Therefore, it’s timely to take a pulse-check of the construction industry to see how the sector is responding, as well look at key areas that are likely to disrupt the sector into the future.

BDO’s Construction Survey 2021: a pulse-check of construction companies in Australia, aims to gather the perspectives of construction companies with the latest financial and non-financial data from across the sector and compile these findings into a report. It will also draw on data from last years’ survey (pre-COVID-19) to gain comparative insights for the sector.


About the survey

On behalf of the National Real Estate and Construction team at BDO, we invite you to complete our BDO Construction Survey 2021: a pulse-check of construction companies in Australia, from Wednesday 14 April, closing Wednesday 19th May.

Survey data will be aggregated, and a report will follow in June. The report will compile industry trends and key themes, providing an outlook from the perspective of industry players.

This short survey will provide a snapshot of current business conditions with questions surrounding:

  • Financial, business outlook, and general management
  • Safety and environment
  • Human resources
  • Cybercrime
  • Supply chain 

Why should you get involved?

This survey is open to all construction owners and operators who are contractors within the construction industry. By taking part in this survey, you will gain direct access to the final report in mid-June, plus an opportunity to participate in a follow-up event with your peers.


If you would like to discuss your strategic approach for 2021, please contact our National Real Estate and Construction team.
