The Master Builders Association (MBA) North has broadly welcomed President Ramaphosa’s vision of massive infrastructure spending as the “flywheel” of South Africa’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

The Master Builders Association (MBA) North is calling on government to assist the industry by proactively engaging with the industry to firm up the lockdown regulations as they pertain to the construction industry as timeously as possible.

A group of construction industry stakeholders has urged the industry to return to basics in order to overcome its current challenges successfully.

News of yet another principal contractor entering business rescue with tens of millions in debt puts scores of sub-contractors at risk, says MBA North.

The announcement on the 15 June 2018 that Basil Read Construction is applying for business rescue is a clear indication of the critical state of the construction industry, says Mohau Mphomela, Executive Director, Master Builders Association North.

Redefine Properties’ 90 Grayston Drive construction site was awarded first prize in the Master Builders Association North Regional Construction Health and Safety Awards.
