Minister of Human Settlements, Water & Sanitation, the Honourable Lindiwe Sisulu will address the Social Housing Regulatory Authority (SHRA) Investment Seminar taking place virtually this coming Wednesday, 30 September 2020 highlighting the strategic role of social housing in the Human Settlements portfolio.

Government will in the coming months expedite the implementation of at least 50 infrastructure projects with a total investment value of more than R340 billion.

Against the backdrop of ongoing measures to address the Covid-19 pandemic in South Africa, the Supplementary Budget 2020 highlighted several key aspects, says Dr Andrew Golding, chief executive of the Pam Golding Property group.

The Master Builders Association (MBA) North has broadly welcomed President Ramaphosa’s vision of massive infrastructure spending as the “flywheel” of South Africa’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

Following two months of hard lockdown, the development of a 2 047-bed student village at the University of Fort Hare (UFH) has resumed this week.

Reports of the demise of the construction industry in South Africa are greatly exaggerated, says construction giant Grinaker-LTA.

It is vital that the entire construction industry be allowed to return to work as soon as possible.

There is a direct link between the stability of an economy and ongoing development – and currently the local construction and property industries are undeniably experiencing a lull due to reduced expenditure by government on large scale infrastructure projects as well as uncertainty in the private sector investment markets.

Concor’s new group CEO Lucas Tseki is confident South Africa’s construction sector is turning the corner, provided there is no further delay in the adjudication and awarding of large infrastructure contracts by government agencies.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is collaborating with a coalition of over 70 international organisations to develop a new fire safety global standard.
