Next level: Soaring construction activity has prepared the industry for revenue growth

The Site Preparation Services industry's performance primarily depends on trends in construction capital expenditure and public sector infrastructure spending. There are no major players in the industry, as most operators are small-scale firms that provide demolition, earthmoving, levelling and wet hire services on a contract basis for local construction firms. Positive activity in the broader Construction division has bolstered industry revenue growth over the past five years. Capital expenditure on construction has skyrocketed, supported by historically low interest rates and a push by the New Zealand Government to improve public more.
