Sunbird employs the latest technology and construction methods

Key Sectors

We work with institutional and private property developers, as well as operational organisations requiring support infrastructure in the following sectors:

Residential Development

Our residential expertise ranges from high-end luxury apartments and townhouses, to affordable mass housing complexes. In all cases, quality of life and aesthetics are considered carefully at the design stage.

In the case of affordable mass housing complexes, we achieve high quality, yet low-cost units thanks to our innovative design, experience in materials selection and the development of a highly efficient build process. The result is a housing system that is quick and simple to construct with semi or unskilled labour. This means that we can use local labour where necessary, eliminating the need to accommodate skilled employees and helping to speed up the build process. Our housing system can be adapted for social and public amenities.

Commercial & Industrial Development

East Africa is at a pivotal stage in its development, with many overseas companies seeking to establish their commercial businesses within the region. Our modern building technology is ideal where traditional construction techniques are not possible or financially viable.

Applications for our innovative build technology include: Office blocks; Retail stores; Showrooms; Warehousing and logistics centres to name a few.

Oil & Gas

Onshore and offshore reserves of hydrocarbons in East Africa are among the largest in the world and are in an ideal location to supply Asian markets. We work with oil and gas companies from exploration right through to production; constructing premises to house their back office operations and accommodate a large workforce.

We also support service providers and provide facilities management support to ancillary services to the main processing facilities.


The discovery of large quantities of metals and minerals within East Africa has been a catalyst for the development and overseas interest of countries such as Mozambique and Tanzania. Our capability to deliver remote area developments quickly enables our clients in the mining industry to establish a base to accommodate remote workforces near to extraction facilities. We focus on cost-effective modular design for large-scale camps with emphasis on quality of life for those who live and work in these remote locations.


East Africa has a thriving and dominant tourism sector, built on its rich array of game reserves and safaris, islands and beach destinations. We are able to support growth in the tourism sector through the delivery of luxury hotels, villas and camps. We can also provide staff accommodation, other support buildings and remote area infrastructure.

Government & Education

All the governments of East Africa have ambitions to build and improve infrastructure.

For example, Kenya’s government has published its wide-ranging Vision 2030. From university campuses to support structures for power generation sites, we are able to deliver buildings quickly and efficiently. Furthermore, East Africa has one of the world’s greatest concentration of diplomatic and NGO missions, as well as the UN’s second largest facility globally. We are positioned to provide construction and facilities management services to these sectors.

As with all good design, functionality forms the basis of all our construction projects. However, we believe that a high standard of finish and an aesthetically pleasing appearance adds to the quality of life for the building’s inhabitants - and contributes to the smooth running and efficiency of your whole operation.

We also don’t let a remote or difficult environment get in the way of our strict health and safety standards. We have robust procedures in place to ensure everyone’s safety - both for our own staff and those of our sub-contractors. We are also very close to achieving ISO:9000 accreditation. We employ local people, enabling them to learn new skills and benefit from new opportunities.

Our capabilities do not end with construction. We continue to support our clients as they move into their new facilities. We can help you get settled in - and provide essential ongoing facilities management and support services throughout the entire life of your building.

Our 35 years of on-the-ground experience of construction and support services have helped many businesses - large and small – to get firmly established in East Africa. As the area continues to develop, more and more organisations can benefit from our proven expertise.
