On Africa Day (25 May), which marks the day when the Organisation of Africa Unity (OAU) was formed in 1963, Saint-Gobain in sub-Saharan Africa is engaging with an initiative geared at celebrating architecture in Africa. The inaugural Africa Architecture Awards is the first dedicated Pan-African awards programme of its kind. Launched by Saint-Gobain, the awards aim to recognise and reward worthy projects from across the African continent, with one overall winner garnering a $10 000 grand prize.
More than 33 000 tons of Saint-Gobain PAM pipes and fittings, representing 93 km of pipes are being delivered in Mozambique to connect the dam of Corumana with the city of Maputo. The building works should be completed by February 2018.
Saint-Gobain, through the Mortars Activity (Saint-Gobain Weber), acquired 100% of Buildezee Adhesives Botswana (PTY) Ltd on March 27 (2017), a leading manufacturer of tile adhesives and grouts in Botswana.
In Samrand, near Johannesburg (South Africa), the Saint-Gobain YouthBuild Academy pilot training program has just seen 50 students qualify in the “National Certificate: Ceiling & Partition Installation NQF 3.”
Saint-Gobain PAM was chosen by SOMAPEP (Mali drinking water authority) to supply drinking water to 200,000 households in Bamako and its inner suburbs.
With Sir David Adjaye as the Awards’ official Patron, AAA is the first Pan-African awards programme of its kind.
