construction sector of  Guinea-Bissau

-Is mainly informal as only a small number of local companies are present on the market.

 

-A political stability and new projects should attract international contractors, but at the moment, the large international companies have no local representatives in Guinea-Bissau given the political situation in the past years.  

 

 

construction materials of  Guinea-Bissau

-Cement

  -the cement market in Guinea-Bissau is estimated between 60 and 100 thousand tons   per year.

  -Part of the cement is imported from Senegal.

  -A project for the construction of a cement plan is currently considered by Spanish   investors.

  -It would be hard to work cement on site, but might work for small prefabricated pieces.

  

-The region counts with limestone and

granite resources.


 

 -In existing buildings, most of the construction materials are imported.

 

 

on site materials in Guinea-Bissau

-Bamboo

  -Accessible material on site, many options.   -Does not require complex tools
