NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 11 – The National Construction Authority (NCA) has registered 18,000 contractors in different categories ranging from building, civil works and other specialised fields.

NCA Executive Director Daniel Manduku said over 150,000 construction workers and site supervisors had been accredited in a move aimed at enforcing order to the construction sector.

“We have now registered all contractors in Kenya. This move gives us the opportunity to regulate the sector in a structured manner with premium placed on safety of buildings and transfer of technology,” said Manduku.

Manduku said NCA now has 111 contractors in the NCA 1 category and was working with stakeholders and partners to increase numbers.
