You are encouraged to register for this prestigious event which will see thought leaders in the industry discussing industry-related issues, including health and safety burning issues. Transformation of the sector is also under discussion and the famed Thuthuka model will be discussed. Programme director, Leanne Manas, will steer the debates and discussions on 27-28 October 2016.
Following three successful conferences, the 2016 event promises to offer delegates a comprehensive look at burning issues in the project and construction management sector.
The three-day event takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre from 26-28 October 2016. The Master Class and Ask the Expert sessions take place on Wednesday 26 October and are the technical and focused components of this forum.
The Conference itself to be held over 27 and 28 October will be addressed by thought leaders from leading private sector institutions, public sector infrastructure development agencies, renowned Built Environment academics and bodies, voluntary associations, to mention a few.
On the evening of 27 October, the Minister of Public Works, Minister Thulas Nxesi, will launch a Presidential Forum which will include the SACPCMP President and Presidents of all SACPCMP Voluntary Associations. This Forum is primarily established to coordinate efforts of both the public and private sector in promoting the use of registered professionals to reduce project overruns in infrastructure development and protect public interests; coordinate public and private sector efforts that contribute to developing and growing the sector; and assist in driving joint transformation initiatives.
On 28 October the Conference will see an Ambassadors session. Ambassadors from Kenya, Uganda and Namibia will outline developments in infrastructure development in each of their respective countries.
The deliberations will focus on opportunities for professionals and the industry as outlined in the Nine-Point Plan which was unveiled by the President of the Republic of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, in his 2015 State of the Nation Address.
Highlights will include massive infrastructure investments of the private sector, both in fully funded private sector initiatives and Public Private Partnerships.
Nomvula Rakolote, the Registrar at the SACPCMP, said, “This Conference has grown in popularity since its inception in 2013. In order to ensure that we have a safe South Africa, in terms of construction, we need to put checks and balances in place and to register professionals in the project and construction management space. This is precisely what this conference aims at achieving. Come and add your voice to the transformation and health & safety debates and add to the pool of knowledge that exists.”
