CSR chairman John Gillam says the building products supplier is demonstrating its confidence in Australia's construction industry through its capital expenditure program.

CSR offloaded its troublesome Viridian glass business for $222 million in January and is ploughing cash into projects including a new $75 million Hebel plant on the NSW central coast.
