Elizabeth Wangeci Chege is firstly a wife and mother. She is the CEO and co-founder of WEB Limited, a sustainable construction consultancy, the past chairperson of the Kenya Green Building Society (KGBS) and was nominated and appointed in 2017 as the World Green Building Council Africa Regional Network Vice Chairperson, (The first Kenyan and female to hold the continental position). Through her volunteer role at Kenya Green Building Society, Elizabeth has collaboratively led the transformation of the built environment in Kenya by embedding green building practices into the industry and extending it to green schools thus mitigating greenhouse gas emission, human health enhancement and boldly stimulating the green jobs agenda. Beyond technical leadership, Elizabeth believes it is our noble responsibility, as a human community, to enhance the environment in our economic pursuits. A milestone for KGBS led by Elizabeth was the signing of local counties onto the World Resources Institute Building Efficiency Accelerator Program. Nairobi County Council and Kisii County Council signed up in 2017. More Counties are geared to join.
The role of the IQSK is to further the development of quantity surveying as a profession in an effort to improve services offered to those who need quantity surveying services. In this regard, we draw our members from a broad section of the society provided they have a demonstrated interest in pursuing quantity surveying as a profession.
