The industry is characterised by a moderate level of capital intensity due to a large variety of equipment required by industry participants.

Industry operators often require heavy machinery for road and rail works, as well as more complex jobs involving design and operation potentially requiring skilled workers with engineering backgrounds. These workers are likely to use advanced computer aided design software to help them, and also require tools and machinery for installation.
