Always give people a memory, something to remember, shape their experience in spaces and places, being part of the BIG5 CONSTRUCT KENYA organized by dmg: events was such an honor.
In November 5-7 at Kenya International Conference Centre (KICC) Nairobi, Kenya, I was privileged to be part of the 3rd edition of BIG5 Construct Kenya. I had a chance to interact with different people from all over the world all involved in built environment.

I was able to share my expertise on greening interiors; in the business sense the interaction I had with various designers and manufactures of various brands and products on how we can collaborate to embrace and adhere to Eco friendly approach to building design and architecture was marvelous. Importance of building and maintaining strong partnerships forms an integral part of trade and business growth.
I also appreciated the commitment shown by most manufacturing companies in inquiring and recording the products database on Environmental Product Declarations, Product Health Declarations, Raw Material Sourcing and Extraction Report and adherence to British Standards of manufacturing Products. I was interested more on building interiors and here are some of the stands that I visited:
