Introduction

The workforce in construction faces a significant challenge due to an ageing population, project complexity and technological forces. This trend is particularly evident in critical sectors of the economy where the scarcity of skills hinders project and service delivery. The changing nature of work and the ageing population raise concerns about knowledge transfer and contribute to a scarcity of essential skills, leading to rising project and production costs. To ensure the sustainable growth of economies, the workforce must meet the requirements of the future of work in the sector.
