The demand for middle and high-income housing continues to intensify, while Cape Town’s urban concentration policies are driving the provinces ‘mini-building boom’.

National government’s plan to spend more than R940 billion on infrastructure development will position the construction sector well for growth in 2018, in particular, social housing, renewable energy and roads infrastructure projects are expected to sustain growth and drive the urbanisation and semi-migration expansion in the Western Cape.

The Cape Construction Expo 2018 is the only event dedicated exclusively to the building and construction industry in the Western Cape and it presents a unique opportunity for product manufacturers and distributors as well as service providers to network with key buyers from the sector.
