Over 200 construction companies from more than 33 countries are expected to take part in third edition of the Big 5 construction week set to take place in Nairobi from 7th – 9th November 2018.
“Kenya’s Vision 2030 and Big Four Agenda is increasing construction demands across a wealth of sectors and as a result we are pleased to say the event has grown by 20% this year. With over 220 exhibitors from more than 33 countries, we look forward to bringing the worldwide building community to Nairobi.” Muhammed Kazi, the Portfolio Director at dmg events said.
The expo which target group construction professionals is also expected to be used by the National Construction Authority (NCA) and the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) to educate Kenyans on the ‘necessary legal requirements’ for developers to avoid demolitions as well as uphold construction standards.
“The benefit of our talk at The Big 5 Construct East Africa is to help construction professionals better understand the reasoning behind the ongoing demolitions in Kenya. The NCA looks forward to providing our clients with the right advice at this event,” said Eng. Stephen Mwilu, Manager of Regional Offices NCA
The construction expo comes at a time when more 4,000 buildings in the city are targeted for demolition despite the already existing house deficit which has seen more than half of the cities population living in the slum area.
The Big 5 Construct East Africa expo is expected to offers a valuable opportunity to demonstrate products and gain valuable feedback on product design and installation by talking directly to the developers, contractors.
