Construction Industries Federation of Namibia (CIF)

About CIF Namibia

The Construction Industries Federation of Namibia (CIF) is the national voice of Namibia’s construction industry.  Founded in 1952 under the name Master Builders Association and registered in 1993 as the CIF, it has for more than 60 years played a major role in contributing to the economic prosperity of the nation by providing the skills and infrastructure required to build a prosperous and competitive environment.  The infrastructure that serves our country, the  roads we travel on, the homes we live in, the buildings we work in and the schools our children attend, are all products of this industry’s work. 

CIF members are involved in this very diverse industry.  They construct industrial, commercial, civil, institutional and residential work.  These firms include multi-national building and civil contractors though the bulk consists of smaller contractors and SME’s.  Members also include the retail and wholesale building material trade along with many other manufacturers and suppliers of construction materials and equipment, which serve this sector.  It represents specialist trades such as electricians, joiners, plumbers, painters and steelworkers, among others. 

The CIF is an autonomous, non-governmental and apolitical organisation.  An Executive Committee comprised of volunteer members elected at the Federation’s annual general meeting governs CIF. The committee is elected from a variety of construction-related sectors, thereby enabling the Federation to speak authoritatively on behalf of all its members.

Mission:

It is the mission of the Construction Industries Federation of Namibia to serve, promote and enhance a prosperous construction industry on behalf of its members in matters of national and international concern and to enhance the quality of life by providing employment and improving skills.

Objectives:

The objectives of the Construction Industries Federation of Namibia include: to represent members in their individual and collective capacities by supporting them against unfair practice to develop and maintain friendly business relations among members to promote harmonious working relationships among its members, their employees and trade unions to represent national interests of the Namibian construction industry with the Government to coordinate the skills and training needs of the building industry in Namibia .
