The ‘Project 5: A weekend for every worker’ research project was a two-year research study by the Australian Human Rights Institute and UNSW Sydney, commissioned by Roberts Co, and Health Infrastructure.

Project 5 examined the potential impacts and benefits to workers at the Concord Hospital redevelopment, a project which trialled a Monday-Friday work week for construction workers and opened to patients on time and on budget.

The findings of this study highlight the success in providing a weekend for workers in the construction industry and the positive social benefits of innovating as a sector to improve their work/life balance, while ensuring economic viability in delivering our projects.
