The demand for skilled professionals in construction amidst the new normal

30 June 2020


Where the built environment sector is concerned, this sector was already battling a few challenges such as liquidity, buyer-seller mistrust, unethical practices and a shortage of skilled human resources when it got further hit by the impact of the successive lockdowns. The industry, with the cooperation of the government, is already working towards rectifying some of these issues.

Although it is hazardous to make predictions in such a volatile environment, the coming six to 12 months are expected to be a turbulent period as construction projects are already delayed, and we do not know when the stalled constructions are expected to resume.
