Lessons learned

  • Thanks to the Status quo analysis, it is estimated that blue collar workers in the building sector represented 18900 workers in 2011. 10000 additional workers may be required in retrofitting and 39000 additional workers for new buildings in the construction sector by 2020. 9800 to 16020 will require upskilling. The professions where the estimated labour demand annual needs are the highest in quantitative terms are the building operatives, bricklayers, and roofers.
