The Big 5 Construct East Africa will start from 7th to 9th of November 2018. The show will bring 220+ exhibitors from 22 countries, 40 CPD certified workshops and 7000+ construction professionals in Kenyatta International Convention Centre. The Big 5 Construct East Africa will focus on how contractors can avoid demolition in the future. National Construction Authority (NCA) and the National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) say they will now focus more on educating Kenyans on the ‘necessary legal requirements’ for developers to avoid demolitions. The two government institutions observe that with some 4,000 buildings targeted for demolition in Kenya, there is urgent need for construction professionals to review the correct legal approval process as a means of safeguarding future projects and avoid losses occasioned by demolitions.
NCA and NEMA, who sit on the technical committee charged with auditing unsafe buildings and those built on wetlands, say that the current demolition action whose primary focus is reclaiming riparian land in Nairobi is an example of what could happen if asset owners neglect to follow the due legal process.
The two authorities announce they will utilize The Big 5 Construct East Africa, the official Exhibition of National Construction Week Kenya, to highlight these issues.
Running alongside the International Construction Research Conference and Exhibition organised by National Construction Authority, the event is part of The Big 5, the largest, most influential and renowned portfolio of construction industry exhibitions spanning the Middle East, India and South East Asia. On its launch edition in Kenya in 2016, The Big 5 Construct East Africa welcomed over 7,000 participants and hosted more than150 exhibitors from 20 countries, showcasing the latest and most innovative construction solutions from across the globe.
