The opportunity for African countries in supporting the growth and development of their affordable housing industries is immense and transformative.

The South African division of leading independent global real estate consultancy, Knight Frank, has appointed John Jack as the new Chief Executive Officer.

The cost of global construction is set to rise by 4.3 percent during 2018 compared to 4.1 percent in 2017, as developers face the challenge of continued shortages of relevant skills to deliver an increasing number of projects, according to new research from global professional services firm Turner & Townsend.

The United Kingdom’s Department for International Trade (DIT) says it has the ability to facilitate the provision of billions of Pounds Sterling in lending and guarantees to African countries to help them address a chronic infrastructure backlog that the World Bank estimates to be about US$93 billion a year in the Sub-Saharan region alone.

The Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) is entering its 10th year of operation on a high note with a milestone 200 buildings rated with Green Star SA certifications.
