Record Number of Building Works in Victoria

18 Abercrombie St Deepdene close windows

A RECORD $38 billion in building works were approved across Victoria in the past financial year.

New figures released by the Victorian Building Authority reveal a record 114,800 building permits were issued across the state in the 12 months to June 30.

It broke the record set in the 2009-10 financial year when 113,669 permits were issued, while the $38.4 billion value of works trumped the $32.8 billion recorded in the 2016-2017 period. The figures cover everything from houses to hospitals, as well as backyard pergolas and sheds.

Houses accounted for $19.8 billion of the permit values.

Melbourne City Council was home to almost $5.7 billion of the permits — soaring from just under $4 billion in the previous financial year. But it was the City of Wyndham in the city’s west where the most permits were issued, with 7231 projects expected to cost about $2.3 billion.

The figures are a further nod to Victoria’s broader economy, which NAB Group Chief Economist Alan Oster described as one of the nation’s best at present.

However, after a lengthy period as a major contributor, the building industry was believed to be heading to a peak, Mr Oster said.

“It’s very strong, but we think it’s getting close to the peak,” he said.
