The CHIP Report provides detailed data on costings associated with construction – both in terms of building products and services and labour costs. The indices break down these prices between states and monitors price changes to provide a comprehensive insight into how building costs are trending and the impact of regional variations.

Who should use this report?

This report is essential reading for insurers, quantity surveyors, developers, builders and building suppliers, architects, economists, policy advisers, property market followers, real estate agents or anyone wanting to better understand the ongoing performance of the Australian construction industry.
