The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on a number of fronts with the view to supporting development and growth within the built environment.

“The SACPCMP has long-sought to foster relationships with organisations both locally and internationally for the benefit of the Construction Industry.The finalisation of this memorandum of understanding with the CIOB will facilitate the activities undertaken by both entities to promote transformation and development within the sector,” said SACPCMP Registrar, Mr. Butcher Matutle.

The MOU will enable the CIOB and SACPCMP to collaborate where possible for the best interests of the construction industry in South Africa, as well as working together to raise standards among construction professionals and promoting Continuous Professional Development (CPD). These aims allow for the CIOB’s public benefit mission to have greater impact and provide more support for SACPCMP Registered Persons and CIOB members in South Africa.

The agreement of understanding is in terms of the SACPCMP’s mandate within the Act to facilitate a process of mutual recognition of professions and qualifications with the CIOB members multilaterally or bilaterally in their respective areas of jurisdiction. Thus, both parties will co-ordinate and align the performance of their functions to promote the consistency of their respective roles and mandates, as well as work together to support each other in their events and communications.

 

Petra Devereux, Regional Hub Manager for Sub-Saharan Africa at the CIOB, said:

“We look forward to working hand-in-hand with the South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions. This partnership will considerably benefit those working in construction management in South Africa, giving them greater access to benefits to enable them to work to the best of their abilities.”
