“Uganda has a large informal sector, and some business people there really have money but they do not know who an architect is. It takes a lot of educating them on the value we are adding to their projects to have them remunerate us fairly.”said Eve Balungi ,Design Architect and Director GBE.
In spite of the firm’s success in their journey for better architecture service delivery the firm has met a few obstacles on their way ranging from people craving for best services but at extremely low prices, large sections of those in informal sector not being able to afford the services with some having no prior knowledge of who architects are and the services they offer to almost everyone in the construction industry in the country drawing building plans.
Undeterred by the minor setbacks GBE Architects Limited have time and again continued to educate and demonstrate the value of their services to their clients and remain to be the best choice for Architecture solutions and services.
