The Big 5 Construct Egypt will host Wesam Gamal, Facade Manager at Orascom Construction, as one of the event's speakers this year. He will present a seminar session titled "How is Prefab Helping in the Development of Innovative and Quality Buildings, while also Improving Construction Productivity?".
Here's what he told us ahead of the event:
What are the 5 major benefits of prefabricated construction?
- Improved quality control
- Faster build time
- Suitable for fast track projects
- Cost savings
- Environmental benefits
In your opinion, which is the most influential upcoming project in Egypt using prefabrication, and why?
There are many upcoming projects in Egypt using prefabrication, in places such as the New Administrative Capital, and New Alamein City in North Coast. Here, we see the introduction of modern high-rise buildings, which will change the face of Egyptian cities moving forward. In my opinion, the most influential will be the financial district at the New Administrative Capital, where construction is currently underway on the tallest tower in Africa. This project will showcase the use of prefabricated façade systems and their benefits.
Who should attend your talk at The Big 5 Construct Egypt and why?
At my presentation, developers, architects, consultants and general contractors will understand how prefabricated façade products can contribute to the overall quality, time and cost savings of their project while meeting its unique design requirements.
What is your outlook on the Egyptian construction market?
The construction industry in Egypt is growing since 2016, and it is expected to continue to expand strongly over the forecast period (2017–2021), with investments in infrastructure, residential, commercial and energy projects continuing to drive growth, making it the best place for construction trade fairs to be held.
