Three Egyptian construction majors are planning an alliance with some state-run African firms before the end of this year in a bid to win tenders for government-led projects in the African continent. Theses anticipated alliances will focus on winning projects offered by governments of some African countries, notably in infrastructure, road, housing, and services sectors, an official in the Egyptian Federation for Construction and Building Contractors (EFCBC) told Amwal Al Ghad on Sunday. The Egyptian companies that plan to form African consortia are Arab Contractors, Nasr General Contracting - Hassan Mohamed Allam, and Al Ahly for Real Estate Development, the source added on condition of anonymity. These companies have already received serious offers from African governments to cooperate in carrying out some new projects, the source said. Entering into major alliances with African state-run companies will help Egyptian contractors capture significant share in major projects in the continent, the source concluded. More»

Henry Pryor, who has helped people buy homes in London for more than 30 years, says only war would be a bigger threat to the housing market than the conditions it faces now after Britain’s vote to leave the European Union.In addition to the vote, the prime minister has resigned, the main opposition is in disarray, and there may be early Parliamentary elections. And Donald Trump may become US president, something Pryor argues would add further uncertainty to the global economy.“Any one of those five would have been enough to frighten the housing market,” he says. “The only thing more dramatic than where we are now is if we were at war.”While his level of pessimism isn’t universally shared, the EU referendum and its aftermath are striking fear in Britain’s real estate markets. The market has been inflated for years by economic growth and speculation, including by foreign investors looking for a piece of the wealth and stability of London. Now Britain’s vote to leave the EU has raised concerns about an economic downturn as well as the possibility that some companies might have to move business to mainland Europe to retain access to the EU’s single market.

The investments required for developing New El Alamein city during fiscal year 2016/17 would amount 3bn Egyptian pounds ($337mn), according to a recent report by the Ministry of Planning on the development of the North-Western coast project.The ministry is currently preparing the general plan of the first phase of the city on 8,000 feddans. This first phase will encompass tourist area, part of the downtown area, and the city’s residential area, according to a source at the Ministry of Planning. The implementation of the first phase’s infrastructure was assigned to Arab Contractors and Société Egyptienne D’entreprises (known previously as Mukhtar Ibrahim), which was approved by the cabinet in February. The government allocated 531bn pounds from the state budget and government investment during the current fiscal year to implement development projects and infrastructure such as roads, bridges, electricity, and sanitation. According to the report issued by the Ministry of Planning, which was then broadcast on TV on Friday evening, the ministry will outline the first primary plan of the first phase and establish a drinking water desalination plant, as well as developing the Alexandria-Matrouh coastal road from the 93km point up to intersection with Wadi Natrun-El Alamein road at a cost of 320mln pounds.

U.K. construction unexpectedly shrank at the fastest pace since 2009 in June as the impending vote on Britain’s European Union membership stymied residential building. A Purchasing Managers’ Index slid to 46 from 51.2 a month earlier, Markit Economics said in London on Monday. Economists in a Bloomberg News survey had predicted a reading of 50.7, above the 50 level that divides expansion from contraction. The report adds to evidence that the June 23 referendum was hindering the economy even before the shock vote to leave. Markit said it collected the construction survey data between June 13 and June 29, with just over 80 percent of the responses submitted before the result was announced on June 24.“Construction firms are at the sharp end of domestic economic uncertainty and jolts to investor sentiment, so trading conditions were always going to be challenging in the run-up to the EU referendum,” said Tim Moore, an economist at Markit. “However, the extent and speed of the downturn in the face of political and economic uncertainty is a clear warning flag for the wider post-Brexit economic outlook.” The pound erased gains against the dollar after the data were released and was trading at $1.3257 as of 9:49 a.m. in London, down 0.1 percent since Friday.

It is one of Swedish center-left Prime Minister Stefan Lofven's signature policies - building 700,000 homes in a decade to ease a shortage of dwellings that has business worried about attracting employees and policy makers fearing a property bubble. But Lofven's plans may be pie in the sky, industry officials and analysts say. Decades of weak construction levels combined with a fast growing population has made new homes scarce. Over 80 percent of Sweden's municipalities are suffering shortages, a 30 percent increase since last year, the National Board of Housing said. The shortage could be the Achilles heel of one of Europe's fastest growing economies. It has contributed to house prices clocking up double digit annual growth, sparked fears of losing international business competitiveness and complicated central bank policy in an era of record low rates.
