In the current challenging local market environment, it’s important to ensure that cost effective, high quality solutions are sought out and used on construction sites – irrespective of whether they are smaller renovations or larger infrastructure projects. Each construction site presents its own requirements and challenges, and this is where MAPEI, local building product solutions provider makes the difference.
“MAPEI has positioned their product offering not as individual products, but as a total system solution for construction projects. With our expansive range of products, we are able to develop and specify a complete solution for use on site, eliminating the risk that comes with using different products that originate from different suppliers” says Shane Coll, Building Products Manager for MAPEI South Africa.
“Our products are used throughout the full construction phase of a project, from foundation to roof. It is important that high quality and standards are always maintained and never compromised.
