The world is changing rapidly. Africa and Tanzania are experiencing rapid urbanisation which is placing additional pressure on strategic resources, such as water, energy and raw materials. This is a busy time for contractors and building materials suppliers that work to meet the demands of society by upgrading and building new facilities.
As urban centres grow and spread out, the need for more water supplies, electricity, sewage treatment centres and housing increases. It is opening up new job opportunities and LafargeHolcim Tanzania aims to train local citizens to become employable assets in the construction industry.
We recruit, train, develop and retain the best local talent at our Building materials Centre in Dar es Salaam. This allows Tanzania to face the challenges and embrace the opportunities that the future of urbanisation brings. Rapid change requires rapid solutions and LafargeHolcim Tanzania is working to solve this.
We prepare eager postgraduates, engineers, contractors and stakeholders in the building sector for the future while delivering value to our customers and society at large. The Building Materials Centre gives Tanzanians the opportunity to advance their knowledge and skills about construction. We host knowledge-sharing sessions where experts share valuable insights into their industry and careers.
LafargeHolcim Tanzania has also paid two visits to two local universities this year – Ardhi University and the University of Dar es Salaam, alongside a guest expert who shares their experiences with the students. A range of topics are discussed during these university visits and the team educates the students about the range of Tembo cement products available. This prepares students for the industry and for the future of construction.
