AL for Infrastructure

Africa not only has inadequate infrastructure to meet the demands of her growing population, but it is also faced with ageing infrastructure that requires upgrading. To support this growth in population and ensure that basic needs are met, infrastructure development needs to take place on a wide scale, which will rely on Engineering & Build Environment expertise for effective implementation.
