Research Foundation

Up-to-date research is a key ingredient of good property development.

The UDIA Qld Research Foundation will facilitate the progression of our industry by providing our members with the opportunity and information required to make decisions based on hard evidence.

The UDIA Qld Research Foundation, proudly presented by Construction Skills Queensland (CSQ), will fill the critical gap in research available through the delivery of both industry and consumer insight and analysis. Through a more informed development industry, more affordable and appropriate homes will be delivered to Queenslanders. Better communities will result.

To satisfy this gap and ensure the industry continues to produce affordable product appropriately suited to the needs of Queenslanders, a four-part, ongoing and annual program of research has been commissioned by the UDIA Qld under the banner of the Research Foundation:

On The Radar Report – our research radar is always on, monitoring and analysing hot industry topics and using primary data to break down what they mean for your business. Don’t let your business fly under the radar, put it in a prime position, courtesy of this exclusive research powered by Urbis.
