The Australian Infrastructure Metric is a major, long-term research initiative produced in partnership with BIS Shrapnel. The Metric captures circa 30 per cent of private construction activity each quarter – using this data to model ‘work won’ each quarter; and forecasting construction activity over the coming years. Our Australian Infrastructure Metric is a robust leading indicator of the strength and direction of the civil construction sector in Australia.
Around 20 of Australia’s largest civil contractors participate in our quarterly study. By capturing a substantial sample of ‘work won’ by these companies each quarter, the Australian Infrastructure Metric provides a timely indicator of civil construction activity in mining and public infrastructure. Our Metric also captures procurement trends and contracting types, over time.
The full Australian Infrastructure Metric report is available on the Major Reports section of our website.
