CCI to address the ‘Plight of Domestic Construction Industry’ via webinar
Once again the Chamber of Construction Industry of Sri Lanka (CCI) has arranged a webinar on a topic of absolute relevance for those who are interested in the ebb and flow of the Construction Industry.
The webinar titled, ‘Impact of Supply Restrictions on Construction Projects’ would primarily dwell on the present restrictions and their impact on Construction Projects some of which are at a standstill for numerous reasons. The Webinar which is scheduled for 2 December commencing at 2 p.m. via Zoom would conclude at 5:30 pm.
The topics for discussion are powerful and so are the speakers who are knowledgeable and experienced in their individual specialties. The opening topic would dwell on a broad sweep of the macro economic developments taking place in recent times being addressed by a Central Bank Director of the Economic Research Unit.
This topic would be followed by the Chief Mining Engineer of the Geological Survey and Mines Bureau speaking on the supply of local raw materials such as quarry products, sand, gravel, clay, bricks & tiles and their attendant supply issues. The President of the Tile and Sanitary ware Importers Association would speak of issues that face them in these times of import restrictions and would propose various mitigatory measures.
Thereafter, there would be speakers from two reputed Construction Companies who would respectively analyse the shortage of major building materials such as cement, steel and other core items and its impact upon prevailing projects and estimates whilst the other would elucidate on the escalation of prices of these materials and some contractual implications that contractors would encounter amongst other things.
The Webinar will be moderated by the Past President of the Institute of Quantity Surveyors of Sri Lanka Chartered Quantity Surveyor, Upul Shantha.
