The Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF) will present its new Customised Forecasts Dashboard at DesignBUILD, Melbourne this week, ahead of its full release in May.

The Customised Forecasts Dashboard is a new data portal for businesses to generate tailored industry forecasts that give them specific and relevant information on their business prospects.

Since 2002, the ACIF Forecasts have detailed upcoming demand for work across all sectors, as well as what is happening with construction costs and labour requirements.

Peter Barda, Executive Director for ACIF suggests that the new Dashboard will make it easier for the industry to access the ACIF forecasts, and to get accurate local or national data to plan effectively. 

The initiative aims to provide subscribers with access to data in four key areas: work forecasts; labour requirements, major projects, and the Big Picture, which looks at construction costs.

The ACIF said that the data portal will allow subscribers to customise queries about the demand of their industry over a ten year period.

ACIF’s Customised Forecasts Dashboard will be presented at DesignBUILD Expo 2-4 April at Melbourne’s Exhibition and Convention Centre before its release in May 2014.A free subscription offer is available for visitors at the Expo.
