See what SOFIA can do for you

The Tasmanian building and construction industry is one of our state’s most important employers - but how much do we know about the labour market and our capacity to meet demand?

To respond strategically to the challenges and opportunities presented by the strong pipeline of building and construction work, we need a comprehensive analysis of the labour market. We need a shared perspective on the data, and some common understandings of the demand and supply issues across all sectors of the industry.

SOFIA, a new industry labour market analysis tool we’ve developed through Deloitte Access Economics, is here to help.

Bringing together data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Tasmanian government, industry associations and busineses directly, SOFIA provides valuable information about upcoming projects, labour market implications and occupation outlooks.

Using SOFIA we can

Present a contemporary picture of infrastructure and construction activity, and the projected pipeline in Tasmania; Forecast labour market demands in key trades and across each sector and region; Add depth to our understanding of likely peaks and troughs in the local labour market.
