MELBOURNE MARKET UPDATE: Winter 2007

NATIONAL MARKET APPRAISAL

Well the weather might be cold, but the current construction & property market is hot, hot,  HOT!  Australia-wide, the market has been full of activity over the past year, with high demand across the board, and the skills shortage remaining the burning topic for the industry on the whole.

Whilst the SA market has remained consistent throughout the past year or so, the markets in VIC, NSW, QLD & WA have been very active & are accordingly struggling with very tight candidate markets.

Construction is now the 2nd fastest growing industry in Australia, after mining. Employment has strengthened across the board in the past year; jobs in general construction were up 6.6%, construction trade services was up 6.1% and building completion services lifted 4.1%.

MELBOURNE MARKET HOTSPOTS


The past year has seen a boom in community-based infrastructure projects (predominantly education, health & aged-care facilities); a trend largely attributed to the country’s thriving economy over the last ten years, coupled with an increasing population.

Several major projects are on the go this year (such as the Convention Centre, Royal Women's Hospital relocation, St Kilda Triangle project & the Olympic Park Rectangular Stadium); with various other major projects yet to be assigned, including the $850mil Royal Children's Hospital development & several others in the $400-500 mil range.

With this volume of work, many firms have been left with the challenge of filling numerous positions, with several key hotspots becoming evident:

  • CAD Technicians: particularly those with AutoCAD, ArchiCAD, Microstation & Revit skills. There is demand for both Architectural & Interior Documentors at all levels, though there is keen demand in the market for Senior Draftspeople with mentoring capabilities

  • Design Architects: at all experience levels; from Graduates to Associate level

  • Project Architects: particularly those with solid backgrounds in commercial / health / education projects

  • Senior Interior Designers: Designers with upwards of 5 yrs experience are in high demand; particularly with hospitality, residential & corporate experience.

EXECUTIVE LEVEL RECRUITMENT

Senior level people are always hard to find, but in this current active market, the issue seems to be more evident that ever.  Demand has remained consistent across the board in both Victoria & NSW for candidates at the Associate / Executive level across all facets of Architecture & Interior Design.

However, despite the huge variety of senior level opportunity in the market, practices remain very focused on what they expect at this level; both in terms of job description & remuneration.

Most firms are prepared to pay at the high level, but they want value for money... from hands-on skills, to design brilliance, team leadership, market savvy and business development skills.

Also of note is the increasing attention from practices on performance-based incentives in addition to the salary component at this level.

MONEY MONEY MONEY

Following the tight candidate market conditions in the Construction industry, prospective employees are increasingly gaining bargaining power; salaries have continued to rise as the skills shortage has put pressure on firms to offer A-1 packages to prospective employees.

Indeed, we have updated our Rate & Salary Schedule Guidelines 3 times in the last year; in September & December 2006 & again in May of this year.

Firms have come under increasing pressure to attract and retain quality candidates, with many groups paying above & beyond market rates in order to secure skilled Architects, Draftspeople & Designers.

The snag for fanciful job-seekers pushing the almighty dollar is that, when a firm offers a higher-than-usual salary package, candidates WILL be expected to perform at the comparative level. Some of the younger ones pushing for (dare it be said) inappropriately high salaries, may be in for a rude awakening -- as clients will not be willing to comprise on quality.

As such, we are advising job-seekers to be aware of these issues, and to be realistic & well informed when discussing remuneration.

LOOKING GLOBAL... NEW ZEALAND

All reports indicate that the New Zealand market is continuing on its busy streak, though the Reserve Bank is doing its best to slow the residential building industry. Nonetheless, the apartment, retail and commercial sectors have continued as the strongest areas of growth, with a lot of Australian investment into the NZ building sector.

Key areas of demand include:

  • Intermediate to Senior Level Documentors (with experience in ArchiCAD, Revit, AutoCAD & Vectorworks)

  • Architects (particularly Project Architects with documentation, detailing & good CAD skills)

  • Team leaders (individuals with good people skills & the ability to run projects and teams)

  • Urban planners and Surveyors, and those with good town planning skills; particularly at an Intermediate or Senior level

THE UK

The construction industry in the UK is extremely buoyant, as it has been for the past couple of years. London continues to draw Architects and Interior Designers from across Europe and the rest of the world.  Due to a booming economy, the industry is the busiest it has been for many years, and according to our sources, there has never been a better time to go to work in the UK!

Candidates at all levels are in demand; from graduates all the way up to Associate level Architects. The specific skill sets required are strong technical & design skills and usually AutoCAD or Microstation fluency (Vectorworks and ArchiCAD being very rarely used in the UK now). Candidates with five years plus experience are most in demand and are the best placed to find employment rapidly; however, less experience will not impede candidate's chances of finding a job, as long as they have good skills for their level.  Salaries continue to rise as the shortage of candidates puts pressure on employers to offer good packages to prospective employees.

For the time being, the outlook in the UK construction market is very healthy -- with no anticipation for a downturn for the foreseeable future.

DUBAI

The explosion of activity in Dubai has certainly persisted well into 2007, with the region remaining a hotspot in the construction and building markets.

Many Australian companies are involved in numerous projects in Dubai, having entered into "joint ventures" with both local and non-local firms. Staffing demands have reflected this activity, with streams being constant and varied -- ranging from Interior Designers & Project Managers to Design & Project Architects at all levels of seniority.

Projects are huge and varied -- in the hotel sector alone there are plans to build 150 more hotels over the next five to seven years.  Other new projects underway in Dubai are:

  • US$4 billion redevelopment of the rail system

  • US$2.5 billion expansion of the Dubai International Airport

  • The Festival City project (a US$1.6 billion, 2.2mil sq ft urban retail resort harbouring 550 shops & 90 restaurants)

  • Numerous residential developments, including the Princess Tower & Burj Dubai: the two tallest residential towers in the world

Just to name a few! ... So, will the bubble burst? It's a hotly debated issue! Suffice to say, all indications point to a continuation of this amazing construction, tourism & population boom well into the coming years.

ASIA

The market in Asia has remained buoyant, and we have seen increasing activity levels across the region. Of particular note are the consistently busy markets in Hong Kong, Singapore & Mainland China, with steady increases in projects in Thailand as well.

Recent months have sent a range of mixed messages to the market, with a tightly fought Federal Election, a looming State Election in Victoria (Late November), along with variable signals from the economies in Europe and the USA. With this being the backdrop as we approach the final quarter for 2010, there are positive signs in certain areas, indeed some sectors feel that they are booming along, however other market areas remain relatively downbeat. Mixed into this is evidence of new projects emerging within the private sector that, if they continue, bodes well for 2011. [Read More]
