Kenya Moves to Cut Red Tape in Building Sector


The government will give the Board of Registration of Architects and Quantity Surveyors (BORAQS) land to set up a one stop shop for pre-construction approvals.

Acting Lands and Housing Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i says the ministry has earmarked two parcels of land at Upper Hill and along Thika road, one of which will host everyone involved in the construction process.

He said once BORAQS sets up a 15 storey building it will host the National Construction Authority, Institute of Engineers, Institute of Surveyors and Architectural Association of Kenya.
