Construction manager salaries are set to rise again next year, with an estimated increase of 5 per cent.
Construction companies are reporting their full year results today, but the majority of companies in the sector are reporting lower wage growth.
The increase in salary was announced by the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development in its latest labour market report.
Construction manager salaries in the country’s five major construction regions are expected to rise by 6.2 per cent this year.
In the first three months of the year, the average construction manager salary was 1.2 times higher than the national average, according to the data.
However, in the first quarter of 2017, the gap narrowed to 1.3 times, with the average salary for a new construction manager in the region of Rs 3,100 higher than in the national capital.
