Convention: African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo 2016

Date: May 9-11, 2016

Where: Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg

Featuring:  Housing for Africa Forum

Sustainable building is at the top of the agenda at the Housing For Africa Forum.

Hennie Botes, CEO of Moladi Construction and Dr. Amira Osman, Associate Professor of Architecture from the University of Johannesburg, feature among the all-star line-up of speakers at the Housing for Africa Forum.

The forum is taking place as part of the African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo 2016.

The Housing for Africa Forum will unlock access to new building systems and technologies to reduce construction costs in Africa, and serve to familiarize local property developers with technologies being used for housing development across Africa, including modular systems, high performance concrete, green building, interlocking systems, steel building, soil brick stabilisation and more.

Because housing delivery is imperative in Africa, the Housing for Africa Forum has been designed to keep pace with the latest technologies and practices for property development across Africa.

Across Africa, demand for affordable housing is ballooning. In South Africa alone, the housing backlog has ballooned from 1,2m units in 1994 to 2,1m by 2014, indicative of the sheer demand for quality and affordable housing.
