Davis Langdon’s Construction Sentiment Monitor update April 2011


The April release has seen the Sentiment Index drop
by three points from the previous release in September 2010, down to an index
score of 60.

Key findings from this quarter’s Sentiment Monitor
include:
• workload expectations dip into negative
• access to finance remains greatest obstacle
• tightening of competition
• Health and Civil & Resource sectors most
likely to grow
• industrial relations concerns on the horizon

Davis Langdon concludes that there is greater
uncertainty than optimism in the market about what the remainder of 2011 bodes
for the property and construction industry. This uncertainty is increasing
competition and pushing margins to possibly unsustainable levels. At the same
time, the industry continues to struggle with a lack of skilled labour, aversion
to risk and the possible redirection of public sector funding.
