Townsville Bulletin



TOWNSVILLE’S constructi­on industry is in survival mode, with operators feeling the pressure of mounting material costs, dangerous labour shortages in key fields and a record number of projects to be completed.

Industry leaders say while the sector may not be on the brink of collapse, there is a long road ahead to regain some stability.

New Home Solutions managing director Darryl Gilchrist says Townsville’s builders will not back down from the fight to keep the constructi­on industry alive and kicking.
