Shelter Afrique Offers Training To Developers, Contractors On Public-private Partnership Delivery

Developers and contractors have been offered a training on practical lessons on the execution of a public-private partnership  (PPP) projects.

The two-day fully sponsored training scheduled for April 24 and 25 will be conducted Shelter Afrique through its  Centre of Excellence (CoE) Masterclass Series.

“There is a visible lack of capacity on the continent for large scale development. Usually, large public-private partnerships are done through a consortium of developers which leads to problems of quality control, design dissimilarities and responsibility. This course seeks to work contractors and developers through the PPP process, from inception, project implementation and handover to equip them with necessary skills to handle such projects and we are happy that the response from contractors and developers has been positive,” said Shelter Afrique Managing Director & CEO Andrew Chimphondah.
