To ensure that our workmanship stands out, we go through an extensive training program annually on the use and application of all our products.
Manufacturers send technical teams annually to tone up skills on our technical teams as well as when the projects are tricky. Furthermore, we visit manufacturers annually to refresh our knowledge on the manufacturing process and application of the products.”
Being in the fore front of the industry’s development, the company works closely with other professional organizations like NCA (National Construction Authority) in support of international development goals in the construction industry by training contractors through conferences, online (social media) and offering consultation services.
Additionally, the company ensures: quality products, cost effectiveness, factory technical support, system installation and maintenance, project management, plus they have a dedicated team that comprehends clients’ needs.
According to Mr. Njuguna, most waterproofing systems present advantages and challenges that need to be weighed against project objectives in order to determine which system is right for the structure. To achieve this, the firm has employed skilled engineers and technical teams who listen to clients, and make site survey to come up with solution. “After site survey our teams of engineers advise the clients on the appropriate system to be applied. However, like any other industry there are some challenges that still drag the industry for instance, some clients may insist on a system that is unfit for certain applications.However, regardless of the system selected, the best results are produced by adhering to the manufacturers’ instructions regarding application and installation.
