Uganda National Association of Building and Civil Engineering Contractors (UNABCEC) represents more than 420 companies including Uganda’s leading contractors dealing in civil, building, electrical, and mechanical works, sub-contractors, suppliers, and manufacturers. 


Regarded as the “voice” of the construction industry, UNABCEC is the most visible organization in Uganda actively advocating for the construction industry.
