Sri Lanka’s construction services sector has witnessed a boom in the recent years particularly in the property, development sector economic development , rapid urbanization and increased consumer spending has been facilitated through the government’s growth and development plan support from urban development authority . Together this proactive approach has fueled in the demand for construction in the form of housing, high-rise buildings , condominiums , hospitals , schools and universities , roads , highways and bridges and hotels among others.

The builder specifiers conference was hence conceived with idea of answering to the booming construction need of Sri Lanka and formulating grounds to impart right & sustainable construction Methods. In the world of building and construction, standards help to codify best practices, methods and technical requirements to create a safe and sustainable built environment for the community. The main purpose of building Standards is to protect public health, safety and general welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of buildings and structures. Building codes are generally intended to be applied by architects, engineers, interior designers, constructors and regulators but are also used for various purposes by safety inspectors, environmental scientists, real estate developers, subcontractors, manufacturers of building products and materials, insurance companies, facility managers, tenants, and others.


Structural Engineering Conclave is a series of conference which highlight the all the subjects related to building specification & standards in a building related to the material or its application.


Structural Engineering Conclave is an initiative for “A category “ product suppliers whose products are standardized at one hand & for the construction experts on the other making them aware about importance of using specified product over any other company’s product having no specification.
