ABOUT US

"Minha Casa Minha Vida"

In 2014, the Minha Casa Minha Vida Housing Programme

was established. In English (“My House My Life”), it is

Brazil’s first-ever effort at large-scale public housing, an

ambitious nationwide program tasked with constructing 3.4

million homes as part of a broader effort to upgrade and

modernize the nation’s cities.

Participants of the program are offered financing options

to either buy a home constructed by the government or to

renovate an existing one. Families with monthly incomes

of less than R$5,000 (approximately Kshs. 130, 000) are

invited to apply, with priority given to families who earn less

than R$1,600 (approximately Kshs. 42, 000) per month.

It is an inclusive and innovative programme that has

seen the country house 4.1 milliion people so far,

that translates to about 2 million people per year, and

still counting. This story is one that we should al read for

inspiration on Kenya’s Big 4 Housing Agenda. You can

access a presentation delivered by Brazil’s former Housing

Minister, Ms. Ines Magalhaes. PLEASE CLICK HERE

The end of 2018 and as KPDA, we are grateful for the year

it has been. It has not been an easy one for us as we have

seen a noticeable slump in investment in the real estate

sector following the long electioneering period in 2017, but

2019 holds nothing but hope for us, it shall be better!

In this issue, we have a follow up article to the CEO

Breakfast Forum that we held in October whose

key sponsor and speaker was Two Rivers

Development Ltd. The article delves into the

various infrastructure-related challenges to

look out for when it comes to setting up a large

mixed use development, as well as mitigating

solutions for them.

As the year comes to a close, we at the secretariat

would like to express our deepest gratitude to

you for all the support you have given us in terms

of attending events, paying up your subscriptions and

being active members as we continue to advocate for a

better business environment for our members.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New

Year!

Thank you for believing in our dream...

Managing Infrastructure Costs

Lessons From Two Rivers

There will

be some

common

themes in the

proposed

remedies...

HAVE YOUR SAY

“48 percent of projects were over budget and 87 percent of projects have a time overrun.”

– Deloitte East Africa [1]

It’s all fine and dandy when you have a great business case for your infrastructure project and you go

ahead and hit the ground running. In most cases, as best practices demand, one will have an approved

budget from which costs will be paid out. This budget is based on the business case that gave life to

the project or in the case of non-profit organization or government agencies the budgetary or grant

allocations.

Two Rivers Mall in Nairobi.

The report, which looked at Africa construction trends in the past year, said 87 per

cent of all Kenyan public projects suffered time delays while 48 per cent overshot their

budgets creating a loophole for corruption to thrive.” – Daily Nation [2]

It has nowadays become common place to find infrastructure project exceeding the existing

allocations and the developers having to seek additional funding to successfully close on

the projects. This without a doubt negatively impacts the return objectives of undertaking

the infrastructure projects originally envisioned.

There will be some common themes in the proposed remedies such as continuous

review of the business case at every stage (a theme championed by Prince 2

project management approach) and the use of either management reserves (a

reserve used to address unknown unknowns) or contingency reserves (a reserve

used to address known unknowns) anchored on the PMI approach to project

management.

This article is meant to be easy to understand and has a clear aim of getting

the conversation on cost overruns among property developers and real

estate stakeholders going.

This may not be an exhaustive list of all factors that contribute to cost

overruns but certainly includes some of the most common ones.

1. THE USUAL SUSPECTS

a. Delays in project commencement

If the time taken between crafting of the business case and

the time works commence on the ground is significantly

long, it usually has a negative impact on the anticipated

project budget and intended project return as set out in the

business case.

Inflation is normally the biggest driver of these changes.

Cost of materials, labour and many other major

components go up over time. For instance, price changes

in crude oil prices creates a significant impact on the

prices of infrastructure projects such as road since there is

a close correlation of crude oil prices with bitumen prices.

Transportation costs are also affected due to price changes

in refined petroleum products. When project commencement is

significantly delayed it is always important to review the existing

HAVE YOUR SAY

prices/rates and determine their applicability to

the present scenario. Where vast differences are

noticeable, then the business case should always

be updated to give the developer/funder a very clear

perspective of what to expect.

Best practice demands that, the business case,

funding, design and implementation is done within

reasonable timelines that will not significantly alter

the validity of the envisioned costs that made the

project feasible in the first place. But since this is not

always the case, and substantial time has passed,

it’s always best practice to revise the business case

and adapt it to the prevailing market conditions.

b. Delays in Project Implementation

Certain aspects of a project i.e scope, time, quality

and costs have an interlinked relationship such that

a variation in one aspect has a knock-on effect on at

least one other aspect of the project.

Delays in project implementation usually have a cost

implication, ranging from extension of preliminary

costs, exposure to possible penalties from end

clients/users, additional financing charges such as

interest on debt etc. To remedy these scenarios

interventions such as fixed price contracts, penalty

clauses e.t.c can to be put in place such as

c. Changes in Legislation and/or Policy.

This happens to cut across all sectors of the

economy and infrastructure projects are no

exception. The government policy making organs,

may from time to time, either through set cyclical

periods or through ad hoc sessions, review

and adjust existing rates, tighten or loosen the

compliance measures put in place, add to or deduct

players and/or stages from the compliance process.

These changes may negatively impact project

costs. To mitigate against the impact of these

kinds of change in legislation/policy is to have a

contingency reserve in the budget to cater for the

cyclical changes as they are predictable when they

happen.

d. Changes in wages (Minimum Wage)/

Consulting Costs

Periodically, in some economies, there will be a

review in the minimum wages and from time to

time, professional bodies may also review the fees

charged for services rendered. For most jurisdictions

the period of effecting these changes can be

determined but the nature and extent of the change

is almost impossible to determine.

To mitigate against the impact of these kinds of

change provisions in the budget (contingency

reserves) may come in handy that allow you to

accommodate these changes. From a developer’s

perspective, a fixed price contract with the contractor

substantially eliminates the headache.

e. Few Market Players and Inadequate

Competition

In some specialist practices, where you have very

few players, the industry can take on cartel like

behavior where specific players dictate the prices.

Ordinarily, in a competitive market, costs estimates

given by the costing expert should track the market,

or even yield a saving attributable to competition

amongst many industry players, but where you have

few players, prices tend to go higher as the players

aim to maximize their profits.

Interesting enough in instances where you have

many industry players and many ongoing projects

such that for a majority most of their spare capacity is

taken up, prices tend to also go up. This is because

for the contractors to take up additional works, they

must beef up their capacity and this tends to come at

an extra cost.

This is difficult to remedy as it requires intervention

at a macro level. A good way to resolve this in a

free market, is reduce the barriers of entry into the

market for players who address the envisioned gaps.

Competition is a good driver for better quality and

lower prices.

f. Never Ending Design Process

A never-ending design process leaves the project

susceptible to introduction of new ideas that may

end up pushing the project costs upwards. This often

happens where a design freeze point has not been

agreed on by the relevant players.

Peculiarly, this is a process that cuts both ways in the

sense that it could lead to cost cutting measures or on

the flip side “gold plating”, where costs end up going

higher without being functionally beneficial to

the project but take on a form appeal.

HAVE YOUR SAY

HAVE YOUR SAY

g. Overdesign and Over-provisioning

In most cases, designers/consultants like to

give allowance or tolerances to accommodate

unaccounted for factors or for future proofing

purposes. This is ordinarily acceptable; however, you

may find that the redundancy measures put in place,

may end up being done in the extreme and this often

causes huge cost overruns.

To remedy this, it’s always advisable to engage

a third party, of equal or greater standing and

experience, to conduct a peer review. Peer reviews

assist in thoroughly interrogating the designs and

giving an alternate perspective to the solution

provided and this may greatly cut down on costs.

h. Necessary/Compulsory Acquisition of

Land

This in most instances affects government driven

projects, but nevertheless affects private developers

where say, they need to improve value of the land

through better access and this can only be achieved

through acquiring adjacent property.

In instances where one must acquire land through

compulsory acquisition (government) or a willing

buyer, willing seller scenario (private sector) the

infrastructure costs may go up as the acquiring

party is at the mercy of the selling party, and where

government compulsory acquisition is applicable, the

process can be prone to abuse and corruption. This

is generally resolved with a contingency reserve as

this is easy to envision.

i. Works for Public Benefit

For private developers, there may be certain works

that are undertaken that may not have been initially

envisioned but need to be done for the benefit of the

general populace and the developer will have no

claim to these works/assets.

These works serve to facilitate, the overall

experience of the intended consumer. Key examples

in these situations are road improvement works,

doing footbridges and bus stops, doing street lighting

and drainage works, landscaping works etc.

Ordinarily these works are carried out by the relevant

government authority, but if they do not have these

works in their priority list and do not envision carrying

out these works soon, the developers may end up

picking the tab on this one. These works can be

accommodated in the contingency reserves.

2. THOSE THAT

SNEAK UP ON

YOU

a. Forex

Fluctuation

This is a difficult one

to tell with reasonable

certainty especially

where you are

importing plant and

equipment (in most

instances for Utility Projects – Power, Water, Gas,

ICT e.t.c). This is primarily because of changes in

the markets where the procuring currency performs

poorly against the quoted currency.

There are contractual remedies set out to mitigate

and/or reduce these impact for developers, but these

mitigation measures can only be to a certain extent.

Management reserves serve to remedy these kinds

of unknowns.

b. Existing Ground Conditions

In some instances, you may find that the

assumptions you made with respect to sub surface

works are incorrect. This forces you to carry out

additional works that may not have been captured in the

business case.

For larger projects this can be remedied by conducting

comprehensive geotechnical, hydrogeological surveys et al,

that comprehensively inform on the works that require to be

carried out. This will ordinarily be budgeted for as they are a

huge expense. But for lower budget projects, this may not be

the case.

In other instances (though not common in this market)

addressing archeology issues and sites of historical

importance may force changes to the project that may

adversely affect the project budgets.

This can be mitigated by ensuring thorough risk management

is carried out and continuous stakeholder engagement is

done. Management reserves come in handy where the risk

was an unknown unknown. If the costs escalation is too high,

the business case must be reviewed to assess viability going

forward. Where compensation by authorities is applicable, this

can be of reprieve to the developer behind the infrastructure

costs.

c. Mis-Interpretation of Applicable taxes.

Where an expert on matters taxation is not consulted

during the procurement budgeting process (procurement of

consultants, contractors, materials etc) then there is the risk

of misinterpretation looms large and may lead to errors of

commission or omission.

An apt example within the local context is, professional fees

attract a VAT charge if the professionals are VAT registered in

the country and if they are not (foreign consultants) their fees

attract a Withholding tax charge. The former in most instances

is taken care of but the latter slips through the cracks quite

often.

There are possibly several other contributors to cost overruns

and the conversations on the same need to keep on going as

they efficiently and effectively facilitate the growth of the real

estate industry.

Lightweight Reusable

Formwork for the Construction

of Affordable Housing and

Social Empowerment in Africa

Given the current housing deficits across the

continent, and the rapid pace of demographic and

urban growth, we require innovative interventions

to meet affordable housing requirements. This

means housing that is appropriate for the needs of a

range of very low to moderate income households.

The price to this end user is directly related to the

cost of construction, the time the contractors will

need to execute the work and the degree of

simplicity of the work to be done.

Focusing on these requirements and providing

appropriate solutions have been the hallmark of

Kumkang Kind’s business since day one. With the

most advanced manufacturing technology and

technical know-how from vast experience, Kumkang

Kind always provides the most economical and

productive systems to address these factors.

Speed

Kumkang Kind’s Aluminium Formwork system

uses a single pour of concrete for the walls, beams,

columns, slab and staircases thus allowing for a

4 to 7-day cycle per floor. In relation to affordable

housing, this means that projects can be delivered at

least 4 times faster than conventional construction.

Cost

Generally, the longer a project takes, the greater the

project costs will be. By reducing the construction

period by 85%, there is a significant reduction in

the resources required, overheads and the overall

construction cost. To the end user this means for

a more affordable house, to the client it allows for

faster delivery and sales, the contractor receives

payment quicker and the financier benefits from a

quick turnaround on investment.

Quality & Simplicity

With a smooth surface and accurate dimensions

of panels, there are no requirements for plastering

or remedial work after concrete casting. This is

another substantial cost saving. Easy assembly of

the formwork eliminates the need for skilled workers.

The use of a hammer and minimal manual tools are

all that is required when assembling the panels.

There is no timber, brick or stone used in the

construction of the building superstructure, therefore

there is no requirement for carpenters or masons.

Kumkang Kind formwork provides independence

from scarcity of skilled tradesmen.

Support

With vast experience and a global network,

Kumkang Kind works hand-in-hand with project

professionals, contractors and developers in the

use of our Aluminium Formwork through training,

knowledge transfer, the actual implementation and

after-sales support. Kumkang Kind East Africa is

the first base of operations in Africa, from which the

global support team is coordinated to the various

sites across the continent.

Social Empowerment

The rationale for stimulating local housing markets

is clear: for every house built in emerging markets,

five jobs are created.” - Centre for Affordable

Housing Finance in Africa. This is more so with

Kumkang Kind Aluminium formwork.

The Youth and Under/Unemployed – the simplicity

of the formwork reduces the need for skilled laborers

yet it increases the opportunities to employ local

and unskilled labor readily available anywhere on

the continent. This not only increases acceptance of

slum upgrading or urban renewal projects, but also

provides a sense of ownership and pride to the local

community.

Local and SME Contractors – Through repetition,

one set of formwork can be used hundreds of times.

A single contractor is able to construct hundreds

of floors of similar design every week. African

Governments therefore are not dependent on large

or international contractors, but can empower local

resources on large-scale projects.

Knowledge Transfer – Kumkang Kind

acknowledges the lack of exposure of this

technology to the African market, despite

its simplicity. With this in mind, a series of

training sessions are provided are provided

to first-time users through onsite training at available

existing jobsites, preliminary training at the client

site, training and supervision during the course of the

work, and most importantly, ongoing support through

the Kumkang Kind East Africa office in Nairobi,

Kenya.

Scalability

Kumkang Aluminium Formwork System is

engineered to any architectural or structural layout.

At least 60-70% of the panels are reusable across

different projects, and can be increased to over

90% if floor heights, doors and window sizes, etc.

are similar. Buildings cast using Kumkang Kind’s

Aluminium formwork allow for the construction

of taller, stronger and more complex structures.

The high cost of land in urban areas presents the

opportunity to build higher to maximize on land

usage, and outward to provide housing to semiurban

or rural towns.

All-in-one System

Kumkang Kind provides the formwork panels,

shoring, external working platforms and accessories

required for each project. Unlike other existing

systems, the Kumkang Aluminium Formwork System

is flexible, lightweight and suits all building types

without the need to rely on tower cranes and other

heavy construction equipment.

Furthermore, all components are 100% recyclable

and thus reduce the impact to the environment.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PARTNERS

Who is in Upper Hill?

As an Association for property owners and

organizations in Upper Hill, this is a question we

receive very frequently. This year, we decided

to share this information in a bid to offer a

transparent and credible view of the organizations

located in Upper Hill through a directory.

Our inaugural Upper Hill directory was released

early this year and it had a listing of close to 300

organizations which were categorized under 12

sectors. These sectors were able to give a broad

overview of the kind of tenancy property owners in

Upper Hill should expect.

includes consultancies, and small businesses is

the third largest sector.

The health sector follows closely as the fourth

largest sector in Upper Hill. This sector is

influenced by the existence of Kenyatta National

Hospital and The Nairobi Hospital. Lastly the fifth

largest sector in Upper Hill is the legal sector. This

sector is slowly growing due to the existence of

the Milimani Law Court and Milimani Commercial

Court which have attracted several legal firms

setting up offices close to the courts.

Our 2019 Upper Hill Directory is expected to

be bigger because the number of organizations

listed will be more compared to the 2018 version.

Inevitably, the listing will influence the size of the

sectors. These sectors include; financial, public,

commercial, health, legal, hospitality & tourism,

Non-governmental, real estate, foreign missions,

institutions, ICT & telecom and energy sectors.

The financial sector which includes organizations

in insurance, banks, auditing firms and other

financial institutions, is currently the largest sector

in Upper Hill. The public sector is the second

largest sector is influenced by the existence of

several State offices in the area such as Ministry

of Lands, Ministry of Water & Irrigation among

many others. The commercial sector which

These sectors were able

to give a broad overview

of the kind of tenancy

property owners in Upper

Hill should expect

The ICT & Telecommunication and Energy sectors

are the smallest sectors in the area although we

note a slight growth. Some of the organizations in

these sectors have opened up their head offices,

for example Jamii Telecommunications and Hass

Petroleum.

NCCG Building Permitting Report JULY-SEPT 2018

THE KPDA NAIROBI CITY

COUNTY GOVERNMENT (NCCG)

BUILDING PERMITTING

APPROVALS REPORT

JULY TO SEPTEMBER 2018

The 2018 KPDA NCCG Building Permitting Approvals Activity Report provides a

summary of statistical information on planning permitting activity in Nairobi for July to

September 2018. Only statistics received from the Nairobi City County Government,

Urban Planning Department have been used as references.

A total of 600

planning permit

applications

were approved

between July and

September 2018.

They were worth

Kshs. 38.7B, giving

the county a

total of Kshs.

388, 355, 028 of

revenue in terms

of submission fees.

This report uses building permitting approval requests submitted to the Nairobi

City County Government which are then analyzed and approved by a specialist

committee appointed by the Urban Planning Department of the Nairobi City

County Government. The report contains information on applications that

have been approved by the specialist committee highlighting development

locations, types, values, application revenues and process performances.

SUMMARY STATISTICS

A total of 600 planning permit applications were approved

between July and September 2018. They were worth Kshs. 38.7B,

giving the county a total of Kshs. 388, 355, 028 of revenue in

terms of submission fees.

The submission fee is 66 % dependent on the plinth area

without the outliers as required by the Tenth schedule of

the Kenya Building code. It would be necessary though

to clearly understand the exact criteria of how the

submission fee is determined.

The highest investment of Kshs. 2.5B in real estate

in Nairobi County went to the Proposed Extension

and Refurbishment of Panafric Hotel giving the county

a submission fee of Kshs. 3, 755, 000. However the

approval that sort the highest revenue during this quarter

While every reasonable effort is made to ensure that the information

provided in this report is accurate no guarantee for the currency or

accuracy of information is made. The permitting data was provided to the

KPDA by the Nairobi City County Physical Planning Department.

Building Plan Designs

is Proposed 32 Two Bedroom Flats and 3 Shops

to be put up along Kirinyaga Road in Starehe Sub

County, which paid a fee of Kshs. 114, 776, 000.

On average the estimated value of building

developments approved was Kshs. 64, 379, 101

with the submission fee averaging Kshs. 647, 258.

Kenyan Building Code of 1997 classifies how

buildings of different classes should be constructed.

This quarter the approvals made are classified as

follows:

• 79.3% (476) - Domestic Class

(commercial developments, domestic

buildings and offices)

• 12% (72) - Public Class (social halls,

religious buildings, libraries, schools, etc.)

• 8.67% (52) - Warehouse Class

(industries, factories, and go downs)

This guides the developer and other players in

the industry to realize that materials for domestic

Class of building would be the most on demand as

compared to the other two.

From the data, at least 17.9 % of the 175 000

acres of the county were approved to be under

some sort of construction or renovation with

Westlands, Kibra (Despite having only 9 approvals),

Starehe and Kasarani being the areas where most

land activity was taking place during that quarter in

that order.

PERMIT APPLICATION ACTIVITY BY SUB-COUNTY

Westlands, Langata and Starehe, have been constantly leading by number of approvals in the past few

quarters since activity started shifting from upper hill in the previous years. This could be due to the distance

from the CBD and the change of user from single dwelling to apartment as the original owners move further

away from the town and the area’s land price and demand sky rocket. These are areas that are also attracting

lots of offices and companies’ employees, hence the demand for apartments and offices.

While every reasonable effort is made to ensure that the information provided in this report is accurate no guarantee for the currency or

accuracy of information is made. The permitting data was provided to the KPDA by the Nairobi City County Physical Planning Department.
