Since 2008 the WABER Conference has served as a platform for interaction between built environment academics in Africa and experienced international academics; exchange of knowledge on current research issues; research skills development; interaction among African built environment academics; and a vehicle for developing the built environment field in Africa.


The aims of the WABER 2015 Conference are to provide an opportunity for exchange of knowledge on current research in the built environment field and issues of research quality; interaction with editors of major international journals and leading academics in the built environment field; research skills development for early career academics; discussion of current research findings; interaction with leaders of companies and projects on advanced technologies adopted in the delivery of construction projects; reports on construction industry developments and innovative construction practices in various African countries; and dialogue on the extent and impact of Chinese participation in the construction industry in Africa. The 2015 Conference provides a unique platform to address these important objectives and current issues.
