Most of Victoria’s building industry are satisfied with work 

Victoria’s building industry continues to be a great place to work is the message from building

practitioners involved in the latest pulse° practitioner and consumer survey.

According to recent survey data, 87 per cent of Registered Building Practitioners (RBPs) rated

their job satisfaction as high, demonstrating an increase on the previous survey result of 85

per cent.

Practitioners identified the key contributing factors to their job satisfaction as being pride in the

built product, teamwork aspects, work environment and the variety of work.

Building Commissioner Tony Arnel commented that the increase in practitioner job satisfaction

levels has positive implications in the context of a growing industry and meeting consumer


“With 24,000 Registered Building Practitioners involved in the State’s 24 billion dollar building

industry it is pleasing to see high satisfaction levels from both building practitioners and

consumers,” said Mr Arnel.

In 2009-10, domestic builders and commercial builders recorded a higher level of job

satisfaction than their building surveyor colleagues. 

The pulse° survey shows 84 per cent of building consumers reporting high satisfaction with

their overall building experience – 93 per cent were highly satisfied with the quality of the

building product and 85 per cent were highly satisfied with their builder’s management of the

project. These levels show an increase from the previous survey which recorded 89 and 80

per cent respectively.

“The high levels of satisfaction consumers are reporting demonstrate quality outputs that

Victoria’s RBPs should take pride in,” he said.


The 2010 pulse° practitioner and consumer survey involved 600 building consumers and 600

Registered Building Practitioners.
