Construction, Infrastructure, and Engineering-Related Business
Since its’ inception, HLG Australia has been committed to the monitoring of market trends, consumer demand, legal changes, and investment dynamics in the construction, Infrastructure, and has acquired in-depth knowledge of the sectors in Australia and Asia Pacific region. Some of our management teams held senior management and advisory positions in major Australian companies in those sectors , has built relationships, and developed an exceptional reputation for identifying opportunities in the industries.

HLG Australia has confidence in the Australian and regional property, real estate, and industrial sectors. We trust in the socio-economic and political stability of Australia and the region, the continued rise of demand for affordable residential housing and commercial spaces, innovative goods, and services due to the rapid growth of the population, and noticeable changes in lifestyle trends.
Growth Overview – Surging Demand
In recent years, modernization has been taking over the country. Large buildings, skyscrapers, towers, etc., have grown like grass right in front of your eyes. The business industry is growing, meaning there’s a need for offices, industrial spaces, and retail shops buildings to be catered. This also means that there’s currently a demand for land spaces for the establishments and those buildings to be built, resulting in increasing demand for both construction resources and land spaces.
Spurred on by the vibrant economy and a lifestyle of international renown, immigration into Australia keeps growing. Since 2000, the population has grown by about 4,000 people per week.
As population centers expand, local governments have increased spending on large-scale infrastructure projects. Together with the resource sector boom, this accounts for extremely high levels of activity in the civil engineering and construction sector.In particular, transport and utility projects have become a focus for long-term investment. In 2005, the Australian Government established an Export Infrastructure Task Force to identify priorities and reduce impediments to investment.
More recently, the Government established Infrastructure Australia to coordinate a national approach to Australia’s future infrastructure needs. The agency has completed an audit of the nation’s economic assets and identified key themes to drive the development of Australia’s Infrastructure. These include broadband, energy grids: port productivity and land transport, public transport, and water supply.
Continued strong demand means the Government is keen for more foreign companies to enter the infrastructure development market, both to increase competition and relieve construction bottlenecks.
Billions of dollars’ worth of major infrastructure projects, either under construction or in the planning stage, are rapidly changing the face of Brisbane and Queensland. Bringing together public and private sector expertise in successful partnerships, the city, and the state’s multiple transport, energy, health, and education infrastructure projects present a wealth of opportunity for investors to tap into this critical sector of Brisbane’s growing economy.
Historically, the construction industry, particularly engineering construction, has been a significant component of Queensland’s economy. Over the past decade, engineering construction completed has grown fivefold from $7.5 billion in 2003 to $38 billion in 2013 in real terms. This growth has been primarily driven by massive investments in Queensland’s energy and resources sector and the need to build community and economic Infrastructure to cater for strong population growth in Brisbane and throughout Queensland (Source: Queensland Major Contractors Association and Construction Skills Queensland, 2014 Major Projects Report: Queensland Engineering Construction Outlook).
