"Collusion represents a negative impact for our members in the form of escalated development costs and reduced yields, with knock-on impacts for demand in the economy and the growth of property sector," Sapoa CEO Neil Gopal said yesterday.

Last month, the Competition Commission fined 15 construction firms a combined R1,46-billion for collusive tendering in projects between 2006 and 2011.
