Established in August 1994, the Australian Constructors Association is a trusted voice for industry.

We collaborate extensively across the sector and represent the views of industry leaders to help shape government policies to ensure Australian communities receive high-performing assets and services from the infrastructure, building, resources and energy industries.

Our goal is to create a more sustainable construction industry for the benefit of all.

We believe that a sustainable construction industry is built on the three key pillars of equitable and aligned commercial frameworks, a positive industry culture, and sufficient capability, capacity and skills to execute the projects it is called upon to deliver.

It is an ambitious goal but an achievable one if the sector pulls together.

  • Commercial and residential building

2021 Year in review

It is with great excitement that we share the Australian Constructors Association 2021 Year in review report. This report outlines our priorities, reform activities, advocacy efforts, thought leadership and communications. An inside look into how our association operates is also provided.

As outlined in the report, this year was like no other. As with many industries, the COVID pandemic put construction to the test—even more so than the year before. But the test was not limited to keeping the industry open. Tasked with rebuilding Australia’s economy, the construction industry is facing a tidal wave of work and failure to deliver is not an option.

We believe COVID provides a once in a generation opportunity for reform. With record investment in infrastructure, the time for change is now. We have responded with speed and agility to fast-track reform initiatives and have built momentum for creating a more sustainable construction industry.

Above all, this year has shown the power of collaboration. The industry as a whole has come together and with government to respond to COVID and unite for reform.
