Konza Technopolis Visit

The Department organized an Academic Trip for the Year 1 Master in Construction Management students to Konza Techno City. The purpose of the Field Visit was to familiarize the students with site activities as they advanced their course unit in Site Management.

Konza Technopolis is located within Makueni, Machakos, and Kajiado Counties measuring approximately 2023.6 hectares, and is a key flagship project of Kenya's Vision 2030 economic development portfolio. The Technopolis is envisioned to be a world-class city, powered by a thriving information, communications, and technology (ICT) sector, superior reliable infrastructure, and business-friendly governance systems.

Konza Technopolis was planned as a mixed-use, high-density walkable city that accommodates a diversity of programs taking a “stitch” framework, composed of a mixed-use “bar” that runs east-west off Mombasa Highway and is intersected by a series of program “bands” that run north-south namely:  mixed-use, commercial, life science, and technology, residential and office bands. The development of the Konza master plan is being monitored by the Konza Technopolis Development Authority (KoTDA) established under Legal Notice No. 23 of 5th April 2012.
