Sri Lanka's construction sector has witnessed a boom in recent years, particularly in the property development sector. Economic development, rapid urbanization, and increased consumer spending have fueled demand for construction in the form of housing, high-rise buildings and condominiums, hospitals, schools and universities, and hotels among others. The government's growth and development plans have also paved way for a rise in infrastructure-related construction such as building and revamping of roads and highways, bridges and state establishments as well as utility projects.
Expertise Sri Lanka can offer
In fact, government policy encourages private investment in many infrastructure projects such as water supply, waste water disposal, power generation, roads, industrial estates and car parks.
The construction sector caters to various requirements within the supply and value chain of a typical project. These services include architecture, quantity surveying, civil engineering, mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) and total construction project management.
Tax concessions, low labour and raw material costs and dedicated government institutions that ensure high-quality standards and development controls, make investment in construction services extremely attractive.
The Association of Consulting Engineers, Sri Lanka, comprises of practicing consultants, private and public sector firms engaged in the entire range of engineering consultancy services (space) and privatized infrastructure projects.
The Association focuses on enhancing the status of the consulting engineering profession in Sri Lanka, quality development, productivity enhancement, and promotion of ethical practices.
