Will the Construction Industry lead the way in the COVID-19 Exit? - Brian Boyd Comments on COVID-19 and the construction industry

With the COVID-19 pandemic taking an enormous toll on the Australian economy, leaders are creating strategies to guide the country into a positive, staged recovery.

Central to the cause is the stimulation of key industries which are able to create strong employment opportunities for the now millions of unemployed workers in Australia.

The Construction Industry is Capable - Brian Boyd

The construction industry is earmarked as one such sector where opportunities exist due to the multiple trades, materials and services required to deliver a single large-scale apartment project.

Melrose Park by PAYCE is a well-defined example where one project has the capability to employ hundreds, if not thousands of workers from a wide variety of sectors.

PAYCE Managing Director, Brian Boyd, is one of Australia's most experienced urban property developers and believes the construction industry has every potential to help lead the economic recovery in Australia. "The construction industry is capable," Mr. Boyd said. "We have proven many times to be an industry which provides high employment levels across the myriad associated sectors we rely on," Brian Boyd continued. "Every new project, be it the large-scale PAYCE Melrose Park apartments in Sydney or a small block development in the Eastern suburbs, contributes greatly to employment in NSW," Brian Boyd added.

"Projects which stimulate employment and create a positive social outcome are paramount," Brian Boyd said. "PAYCE projects are designed to deliver to our apartment residents a balance of ecologically sound living, social cohesion, green space corridors and integrated retail hubs, all surrounded by public transport nodes," Mr. Boyd continued.
