Building Installation Sector in South Africa


The building installation sector consists of activities involving the fitting of equipment to buildings, such as plumbing, insulation, lighting, heating and air-conditioning, sprinkler systems, lifts, electrical work, shopfitting and fitting of certain plants. The sector is affected by capital expenditure by the state and private property owners and managers, which has slowed since the onset of the pandemic, as vacancies have escalated, particularly in commercial offices. A major trend driving new installations is the move to make buildings greener to lower energy and water costs and carbon emissions.


Key Trends


The pandemic has resulted in an increase in vacancy rates in offices and shopping malls, while there has been rising demand for logistics properties due to growing e-commerce, demand for logistics and warehouse space for food, lifestyle and healthcare industry products and the shift from in-store retail to industrial space. With loadshedding set to continue, property owners and managers are increasingly looking to install alternative energy sources such as solar PV units and to fit energy saving devices such as LED lighting, solar water heaters and heat pumps. The pandemic has highlighted the importance of air quality in buildings, and good ventilation and air quality are becoming increasingly important in workspaces.
