First Edition of the Green Materials and Services Directory published
The current shift towards green building construction in Zambia offers a great business opportunity for suppliers of green building materials as Zambians are becoming aware of the benefits of green building and sustainable construction. Residential housing property developers, architects, construction businesses and home-owners alike have seen the significant and exciting opportunity to green their procurement channels and projects with local suppliers of green building materials and technologies.
This first edition of the Green Materials and Services Directory aims to support this positive development of increased need and demand for consistent supply of building materials that are locally sourced and manufactured. It offers a complete listing of brief profiles of local businesses that offer services and materials to help you plan and execute your green building projects.
The categories of the directory are centred around four main pillars of component manufacture, building services, professional services and construction related services. In turn, classification has been on resource efficiency, energy efficiency, durability and localness as immediate benefits derive from the adoption thereof.
The directory outlines the captured information from a baseline survey of suppliers in Lusaka and the Copperbelt with particular focus in Chingola, Kitwe, Kalulushi and Ndola. It has been developed by the Association of Building and Civil Engineering Contractors (ABCEC) with the support of the National Association of Medium and Small-Scale Contractors (NAMSSC) and the UN Zambia Green Jobs Programme.
