Sh35m elec­tronic sys­tem to end short­cut pro­cess­ing of con­struc­tion doc­u­ments

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties | Nairobi -

The Nairobi gov­ern­ment has part­nered with the UK, The Nether­lands and the World Bank to launch a Sh35 mil­lion elec­tronic con­struc­tion per­mit sys­tem.

The Elec­tronic De­vel­op­ment Per­mit Man­age­ment Sys­tem seeks to end short­cut pro­cess­ing of con­struc­tion doc­u­ments

Gov­er­nor Evans Kidero on Fri­day said the sys­tem will ad­dress the ris­ing cases of build­ings col­laps­ing.

“Sound reg­u­la­tion of con­struc­tion helps pro­tect the pub­lic from faulty build­ing prac­tices. This has im­por­tant im­pli­ca­tions for pol­icy mak­ers who need to strike the right bal­ance be­tween the cost and checks im­posed on in­dus­try and the real ben­e­fits in safety and health stan­dards,” he said.

The sys­tem will give builders, in­spec­tors, and plan re­view­ers ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion.
