About the ASOCSA Conference
The Association of Schools of Construction of Southern Africa (ASOCSA) Built Environment conference series in its 15th year of existence continues to be one of the major cutting edge built environment conferences on the African continent. Since its inception in 2006, the blind peer reviewed conference proceedings have been referred to by both private and public sector policy and decision makers. The series produces a post-conference edition of the Journal of Construction, which is on the list of journals approved by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) for subsidy. The conference series continues to be endorsed by the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB), one of the largest global built environment research organizations and is recognized by the Australian Institute of Building (AIB).
The conference provides an interactive international forum and also networking opportunities among researchers, academics, administrators and practitioners, representing institutions of higher learning, government agencies, contracting organisations, consulting enterprises, financial institutions, and other construction-related organisations.
