1 April 2014 – The Australian Construction Industry Forum will launch a new business development portal,  for companies in the building industry.

The Customised Forecast Dashboard will use data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Cordell Information and expert economic reports to provide insight into local prospective market opportunities, labour requirements, construction costs and the outlook for supply and demand across all sectors over the next ten years.

The dashboard, which will be launched this week at DesignBuild in Melbourne, will also now accompany ACIF’s twice-yearly Construction Market Activity reports prepared by ACIL Allen Consulting, next due to be released in May with a series of briefings in every mainland capital city between May 14 and May 22.
