Its true, Nairobi has been steadily rising. It has become a preferred location for multinational organisations to base their African headquarters.

As a result, high quality commercial property is popping up across the city:

etc.

The change that the city has undergone in the past few years is astounding.

Nairobi looks more and more like the booming Asian cities in early phase.

I'm surprised that this thread has as many views as other threads with many more pages.

Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies
Status:Proposed
Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1449632


Quote:
The construction work of a ‘green’ education facility in the honour of the late Nobel laureate Prof Wangari Maathai will begin next year.

Known as the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies, the facility will be built on a 50-acre piece of land at the University of Nairobi’s College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences on Kabete Campus. It will be known as Green Campus.

The design of the campus, whose structures are estimated to cost US$25 million, was done by a South African firm, dhk architects and approved in February this year.

“We hoped to present a vision of Prof Maathai by approaching the site, landscape and architecture in terms of long-term stewardship, sustainable management of

resources, education and empowerment,” Dr Justin Snell, the lead architect said while presenting the design in February.

Nairobi building plans vetted online
the Star


HECTIC: An aerial view of an overpopulated section of Eastlands, Nairobi.

The City Council of Nairobi has introduced the e-Construction Permit Management System (e-CPMS) as a new innovation in exercise of its planning mandate. The Physical Planning Act (Part V) mandates the CCN to prohibit or control development of land and buildings in the interest and orderly development of its area.

The Construction Permit (CP) also known as Building Permit, according to Director of Planning Tom Odongo, is not just a document authorising the construction and/or alteration of buildings but also a planning instrument that determines the quality of the built environment. “Kenya is experiencing rapid urbanization, with Nairobi City bearing the brunt of this rural-urban exodus. The launch of the e-CPMS is therefore coming at a time of critical planning challenges in the context of vision 2030 whose mid-term goal (2012) is to increase annual production of housing from the current 35,000 to wall over 200,000.

As 2012 beckons, Odongo says the CCN has embarked on reforms to change the pace and direction of doing business in the Construction Permit process that would catalyse the housing objectives of Vision 2030. The council’s Planning Department, in close collaboration with the International Finance Cooperation (IFC) and the Architectural Association of Kenya (AAK) has explored the emerging frontiers of ICT to develop this system whose domain address is www.ccn-ecp.or.ke.

He says, the system has two faces’. The ‘front face’, which is a platform for accessing CCN’s planning policies, approval minutes and development guidelines by members of the public. The face also allows online submission of building proposals by architects for evaluation and approval. The ‘back face’ is a platform for CCN planning personnel workflow management.

Among the benefits Odongos says the new system will introduce include improved Speeds of Permit Issuance. The automated system will reduce the amount of time needed to review and approve a building proposal through perks such as concurrent evaluation and commenting by all council departments. This will eliminate the need for architects to come to submit physically to the council and for routine follow-ups.”

There will be increased transparency which Odongo says will allow submitting architects time to monitor the status of their proposals by accessing the online system. In addition to this, the system will also notify applicants via SMS and email whenever their proposals complete key milestones during evaluation and approval.

The system will also enhance efficiency in the surveillance of on-going constructions. “Using Smartphone technology, the council personnel and accredited professionals will capture and record every critical stage of construction to ensure adherence to approved plans and use of quality materials. Errant developments will be subjected to the judicial process with punitive/deterrent/compliance outcomes,” he adds.

Sounding optimistic, the director says the system will be able to keep a performance record of every proposal and the corresponding architect’s performance from the submission level to approval and subsequent monitoring of every critical stage of the development. “This will promote good professional practices at all stages of development.”

He adds that there will be enhanced public security, “due to increased compliance in the industry through the adherence to good and lawful practices supported by the system, the public safety influenced by buildings is expected to be enhanced.”

There will also be a platform to access planning information and council minutes on resolutions touching on planning. “Financial Institutions will cross-reference loan/mortgage applications against Construction Permits listed in the council approval. Similarly, Insurance Companies, Real Estate practitioners and Legal Conveyance firms will cross-reference their respective transactions to listed approved Construction Permits and Occupation Permits.”

On its roll out, Odongo alludes that the immediate phase of implementation of the e-CPMS will take a gradual path to allow a smooth and seamless transition from manual to a fully automated system. In the next three months, both hard-copy and on-line applications will be accepted. “From next January, only on-line applications will be accepted."

The second phase, upon the launch of the e-payment on the 17th October 2011, e-CPMS will undergo enhancements to embed capabilities such as electronic payment mechanisms such as mobile money payment systems (MPESA, ZAP, etc), bank transfers and online payments.

“The system will eventually be open for integration with other government e-systems relevant to the built industry such as land registry at the Ministry of Lands,Survey of Kenya, Nairobi City Water and Sewerage Company, National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA),” he concludes.
