Doing good while doing business

landThe provision of land development infrastructure goes beyond the basic notion of service delivery. Properly planned and harnessed, it forms the cornerstone for accelerated growth, economic sustainability and social stability within  communities.

It provides the foundation for urban and rural communities alike to live, work and play in a safe and functional environment. Bigen Africa firmly believes that municipal infrastructure is one of the key drivers of modern civilisation.

Our land development infrastructure service offering is focused on both urban and rural development which in turn comprises and integrates residential, commercial, industrial, social and agricultural land use. Physical infrastructure requirements span disciplines which include roads and storm water, water and sanitation, electrical reticulation and waste management (our capabilities in the latter two are covered in a separate document).

The comprehensive Bigen Africa service offering is managed by professionals (project managers, engineers and technologists) with in-depth technical expertise, decades of relevant experience and ultimately, a passion for providing creative and innovative solutions for land development infrastructure challenges encountered in the urban and rural development sectors.
