Climate change is a trending topic that is gaining momentum. With movements like 16-year old Greta Thunberg’s Fridays for the Future gaining notoriety this is something that we need to address.

The Master Builders Association (MBA) North says that the continuing trend of main contractors delaying payment of their sub-contractors – or defaulting altogether – is a symptom of the deteriorating health of the construction industry.

Thavhani City, the major economic centre in Thohoyandou, Limpopo, has welcomed the opening of the first Builders Express in the region in its precinct.

The announcement on the 15 June 2018 that Basil Read Construction is applying for business rescue is a clear indication of the critical state of the construction industry, says Mohau Mphomela, Executive Director, Master Builders Association North.

The gazetting of an amended Code of Good Practice on Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) specifically for the construction industry on 2 November 2017 opens up new opportunities for the industry, says Kwakho Mpepho, Education, Training and Transformation Manager at the Master Builders Association North.

This week, 55 small Western Cape construction business owners began the 10-month Department of Transport and Public Works (DTPW) Contractor Development Programme (CDP) training.

Cities could tackle the global problem of rising levels of waste and depleted resources by using organic waste, such as bananas, potatoes and maize as building materials, Arup predicts.

Public Works Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko on Monday called on the construction industry to embrace innovative technologies that have superior energy efficiency performance compared to conventional materials.

AS the Eastern Cape’s largest shopping and entertainment centre, Baywest Mall, marks its second birthday this month (May 21), its performance for owners Rebosis Property Fund suggests consumer appetites for super-regional malls are far from waning.

South Africa’s downgraded status by international agencies is likely to have significant impact on the construction industry as the cost of credit rises, particularly in existing contracts.
