The last year-and-a-half has been challenging, both in the workplace and at home. With public and private infrastructure spend subdued, a turnaround is expected post-vaccination rollout. “Unfortunately, this has limited success regionally to date, but we are hopeful that as the vaccine programme starts to safeguard our country, a more positive outlook is on the horizon for the construction industry in FY22,” comments Dean Narainsamy, director, Programme Cost Consultancy (PCC), Africa.

Based on the cost data included in the guide, Africa continues to steadily grow despite the challenges the pandemic has presented. With larger infrastructure and construction projects gradually coming to market, these will provide opportunities for investment and service providers for 2021 and beyond.
