As a representative of the construction product manufacturers and providers of construction services in the country, we see several discrepancies between the availability of construction products in the market today and the extent of knowledge regarding these products amongst professionals.

This publication has been looking at filling these gaps. In this edition, we are focusing on listing new products and bringing in the technical, application-related and performance data that professionals need to correctly use construction products.

Therefore, the publication will help architects, interior designers, and consultants with the following functions:
