Around 220,000 Queenslanders earn a living in the building and construction industry across the state.
Every day, their work has an enormous impact not only on the houses or apartments or office blocks they build, but on the communities in which we live.
The Queensland Building Plan recognises this impact and guides changes to policy and legislation to create a safer, fairer and more sustainable industry.
It sets the long-term strategic direction for Queensland’s $45 billion building and construction industry and creates a platform that supports job opportunities and economic growth.
The plan is intended to foster a confident and successful building sector that drives innovative, liveable and sustainable design; one where businesses benefit from better processes, consumers have confidence in the industry and subcontractors have improved security of payment.
