The Association of Consulting Architects Australia (ACA) has released its One-Minute Federal Budget Impact Survey, which asks architects what the 2015 budget will mean for their businesses and the profession.
The same survey was put out last year, revealing that the industry was predominantly unhappy about the 2014 budget. Major concerns then included the lack of a flow-on effect to architectural practices from any rise in business confidence and an improved investment climate, while some questioned the impact the rising cost of university education could have on the profession.
It remains to be seen whether architects will have the same response to the 2015 budget, which will benefit the building and construction industry with an injection of $5.5 billion to boost investment, confidence and activity in a traditionally capital-intensive sector.
