After a sold out breakfast in 2016, The Australian Construction and Industry Forum annual breakfast forecast returns to DesignBUILD. This is the annual ACIF Briefing, where the Australian Construction Industry Forum (ACIF) launches the May 2017 ACIF Forecasts for the building and construction industry, outlining the prospects and challenges ahead for residential building, commercial building and engineering construction sectors for the next 10 years.
