The Western Australian government will hold a Building Industry Summit to identify new ways of streamlining regulatory requirements.
Western Australian Premier, Colin Barnett, will open the summit which will take place within the middle of the month.
"Today, state government agencies and local governments will hear first-hand any concerns from industry and exchange ideas on how to improve the building process," Barnett said.
"After the forum, it is my expectation that all participants will turn these discussions into action because there are big benefits for people working in the construction industry, for couples building their first home and for families who are renovating their existing home."
The Western Australian construction industry represents 11.1% of the state workforce and is the state’s largest sector.
The summit will review construction legislation that will assist in the construction of new homes, residential renovations and commercial industries.
Minister for Commerce, Michael Mischin, said the summit would address challenges such as globalisation and automation.
"By working together, we can establish a more efficient regulatory environment that supports the building industry and gives it the edge it needs to face these challenges, innovate and reach new heights in productivity," he said.
Minister for Planning, John Day, will also be attending the event.
