EIZ Secretariat moves into its newly constructed offices

The Engineering Institution of Zambia (EIZ) embarked on a project of constructing the EIZ Headquarters at stand No. 2374, Danny Pule Road in Showgrounds area. Danny Pule road runs from Thabo Mbeki road, behind Arcades Mall through to Nangwenya road at Parliament Motel in Lusaka. To help with construction of the new offices, the EIZ created a special purpose vehicle known as the EIZ Properties PLC (EPROPS), within which the project was anchored. EPROPS is listed on the stock market whose shares are offered to EIZ members. The project was part financed from the proceeds of these shares, over and above the building levy which the members contributed from 2014 to 2018. The EIZ Secretariat was earlier housed at C/L7 Brentwood Drive, Longacres, Lusaka since 2011. The Longacres offices served as the EIZ headquarters. The new building, is a 3 – storey structure and will house the EIZ Headquarters and part of the Southern Region staff who will occupy the ground and first floors on the Southern Wing. The completion of the new offices will enable EIZ to operate under one roof, with room to expand and accommodate new staff to meet the high demand from the general membership. With the opening of the HQ building the EIZ aims to improve members services, with a view to making the EIZ a world-class engineering Institution..
