Why do we still build new homes?
Home design jobs in Australia continue to grow in numbers, with the number of jobs being filled by concrete home design.
Construction and renovation jobs accounted for 29 per cent of total job-seeking jobs, while retail jobs, which are mostly associated with the retail sector, were up 3 per cent.
Construction jobs, or concrete home construction, have been growing for some time.
They have long been the preferred route for people looking to move into new housing, with many Australians opting to buy a new home in order to take advantage of the lower mortgage costs associated with owning a home.
A number of factors have helped cement the trend, including an economy that is relatively stable and a global economic slowdown that has affected demand for homes.
While most of the new jobs created in Australia over the past two years have come from the construction sector, there are also more recent construction jobs in the hospitality, retail and health and social care sectors.
The construction sector has also seen the largest increase in job opportunities over the last three years.
There has been a steady increase in the number and type of jobs that are being created by the construction industry in Australia.
This is partly due to the fact that there is a greater need for workers in this sector.
Construction workers are now more than six times as likely as retail and hospitality workers to be in full-time employment, while there has also been an increase in people entering construction in recent years.
In the retail and restaurant sectors, jobs have also been growing faster than in the construction and residential sectors, particularly in restaurants and fast-food restaurants.
This has been driven by an increase of 6.5 per cent in retail and 6.3 per cent for fast-casual restaurants in the year to March 2018, compared with the year before.
In both construction and the construction industries, the growth of jobs has been offset by the continued construction of older housing.
Construction companies are increasingly finding it difficult to maintain and renew existing buildings, and have recently begun to use new building technologies to address this issue.
The new housing projects in Australia will continue to provide more opportunity for Australians to enjoy the benefits of living in a secure, well-designed and efficient home.
This includes the opportunity to enjoy a home that is well protected from the elements, has a large pool of storage space and can be adapted to fit their specific needs.
