EBK Sensitizes Built Environment Stakeholders on Engineers Scale of Fees Engineers Board of Kenya (EBK) has called for closer working cooperation among government agencies in the implementation of the engineers scale of fees for professional engineers.
Built environment stakeholders in Kenya include government, construction firms, urban planners, surveyors, architects, regulators, county governments, engineers, engineering institutions among others. “We encourage all agencies to engage only professional services which will result in value for money in the construction projects as well as guarantee public safety and welfare,” said EBK Chairman Eng. Erastus K. Mwongera.
“A multiagency approach on collaboration will reduce the collapse of buildings. Currently there are 3000 (registered) professional engineers and the Board aims to increase the capacity to 10,000 professional engineers in the next 5 years to be at par with the UNESCO ratio 1:5000 to realise National Development Agenda in Kenya.
“EBK is encouraging County Governments to come up with panels of professional engineers to offer the services. This is because a lot of development will be at the county level,” said EBK Registrar/CEO Eng. Margaret Ogai.
