A formidable amount of ‘red tape’ in the form of official certificates and approvals as well as formal records and documentation apply from start to finish of a building project, says Uwe Putlitz, CEO of the Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC), who cautions that even a completed building needs written civic approval before a single tenant can move in.

Bryan Perrie, MD of The Concrete Institute, has received the Concrete Society of Southern Africa (CSSA) Inland Branch’s 2017 Chairman’s Award for his “tireless work in the concrete industry for more than 30 years”.

Concor Infrastructure recently secured two significant contracts in the mining sector, and managing director, Eric Wisse, says the company, formerly known as Murray & Roberts Infrastructure, is well positioned to take advantage of the recently increased optimism in the mining space.

The latest statistics released on the value of recorded building plans passed for the private sector in South Africa may indicate an economic shift to the south of the country, says Bert van den Heever, past president of the Association of South African Quantity Surveyors (ASAQS). Building plans passed are a strong indicator of the future health of the construction industry as a whole.

Deloitte Africa, Atterbury Property and Attacq Limited jointly celebrated the start of construction on Deloitte’s iconic new Africa headquarters, with a sod-turning ceremony onsite at Waterfall City. The 42 500 sqm ultra?modern offices are expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2020, and Deloitte plans to begin operating from its new base from April 2020.

The RMB/BER Business Confidence Index (BCI) essentially flatlined at 34 in the fourth quarter. While this is an improvement on the seven and a half-year low of 29 in the second quarter, sentiment clearly remained depressed.
