Construction engineer salaries have risen over the past two years, with a steady increase in the number of employees who earn over £11,000 per year.
The construction industry has seen an average salary increase of 9% in 2016 to £1119,000, according to figures from the British Construction Association (BCA).
According to the BCA, the rise in construction jobs has been largely driven by a growing number of contractors, particularly those in the construction industry, which has seen its growth rate of 4.9% in the past year.
BCA figures show that the construction sector has experienced the highest rise in employment in the private sector, with the average salary for a contractor rising by 2.9%.
A recent report from consultancy firm Ernst & Young revealed that the number-one reason why people are moving into construction is the rising demand for office space.
In a report titled ‘The Big Shift in Construction Jobs’, Ernst & Jones’ chief executive Richard Thaler said the industry had experienced a “significant increase in demand” over the last five years.
“In the past, there was a lot of uncertainty in the housing market and that created a lot more uncertainty around whether a job would be available,” Mr Thaler told the BBC.
“The economy has been very resilient in terms of the construction market, and that’s a good thing.”
It’s a great sector, we’ve seen some great things happen in the last few years, and people are really excited about what’s ahead.
It’s good for our economy, it’s good to have more jobs.

“It’s very important that people understand how important this is for the industry.” “
This is a really important sector and it’s also the first to be affected by the financial crisis and the downturn that we’ve been through,” he said.
