Uganda’s construction industry comprising the building and civil engineering factors witnessed tremendous growth in the years 2012-2016 with 13% growth up from the 11.3% in 2006/2007. The growth is attributed to the inflow of new investors from Europe, Canada, America, Eriteria, India and Turkey

The construction industry is only second in growth rate to transport and communication. This growth didn’t just happen but rather was greatly dependent on government policy that includes the liberalisation of the economy, support from foreign countries and the state of political stability in the country which have all attracted foreign investment.

Liberation has brought about growth of factories and industries and an interesting fact is most of the construction materials are produced in Uganda.

In the past 60% of operating costs in foreign currency was being spent to enable contractors purchase materials from abroad but with the state of political stability people have put their trust in government for long term investment.

It’s also true that donor support has enabled the establishment of civil works such as construction of the northern bypass for example.
The concerned ministry has plans to bolster the local industry and as such the local construction industry is in final stages while the building control bill has already been tabled in parliament.
