The Building Construction industry employs 49,500 South Australians, which is just over 6% of the State’s workforce.

Around 13,500 jobs are expected to open up over the next five years due to industry growth and replacement of people who will retire.

Most of the people working in the Construction industry are tradespeople or labourers, and they mostly build, finish, repair or renovate homes, shops, offices and multi-storey commercial buildings.

Almost two thirds of employment is in the metropolitan area (northern, southern, eastern and western Adelaide), but there are still plenty of jobs in the regional areas.
