Building & Construction Lawyers in Perth

As one of the most isolated cities in the world, Perth has survived and, in fact, thrived by making full use of its potential. Its economic successes in recent years can be attributed to this. Although many people have moved elsewhere for employment opportunities after the mining boom, it’s not all doom and gloom for this beautiful city in Western Australia.

As one of the most isolated cities in the world, Perth has survived and, in fact, thrived by making full use of its location, with the city being one of the fastest growing in Australia in the last decade. Its economic successes have reflected this, with the construction industry bolstered with a strong residential construction sub-sector and many new large development projects. 

In fact, sales volume for properties is slowly picking up. Dozens of shopping centres are being built or renovated at a cost of over $5 billion. With a lot of new construction projects earning approval from the council, Perth is expected to enjoy the benefits of this new construction boom.
