Online Construction Platform Aims to Streamline Industry in Kenya

Nairobi — An online platform that brings together players in the construction industry has been launched in Kenya.

iBUILD allows contractors, workers, architects, lenders and suppliers to communicate and collaborate in a controlled ecosystem. Ronald Omyonga, Chief Relationship Officer, said iBUILD includes training modules for workers and contractors to increase skill sets.

"The iBUILD platform provides home owners with the ability to manage projects, from basic repairs to new home construction. Customers will be able to bid their projects to multiple contractors, create milestones for payments and verify work completion prior to payment," said Omyonga.
