NCA seeks to enhance green building

National Construction Authority (NCA) in an effort to boost green building in the county has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Kenya Green Building Society to promote a more environmentally friendly and sustainable real estate sector.

“Construction is without a doubt the cornerstone of development in any country, more so the developing countries. With the rapid rate of expansion of the real estate and infrastructure, we need to green our construction to ensure we keep up with global standards of excellence,” NCA executive director Daniel Manduku said in Nairobi.

 KGBS chair Elizabeth Chege said the partnership is aimed at promoting the adoption of climate friendly, energy and water efficient, and healthy buildings.

“KGBS will be the central source of all green building information, technology, practices and training for NCA and their respective contractors and artisans through the green building accreditation training,” she said.
