ConstructAfrica addresses the current critical and inherent need for high level usable ‘Construction Intelligence’, addressing the growing number of construction projects across Sub-Saharan Africa.


They focus on being the leading resource globally for timely and independent construction news, construction industry data and construction project intelligence for Sub-Saharan Africa markets.

The Problem

The out of the lip construction company based out of the Sub Sahara region in Africa faced the compelling need to elevate their web presence in tune, to scale up the online brand equity with their rapidly expanding business, reach and popularity. Currently the critical and timely flow of construction-focused-intelligence is available for other parts of the globe but not yet available in Sub-Saharan Africa. The decision was also triggered by the motive to design and develop a portal which proved to be more than a website. It was supposed to be a comprehensive portal which mapped the entire construction industry of the Sub Sahara region on the go.

Expectation from the service provider

  • The online portal was intended to provide news, analysis, project databases, country data, career development opportunities and other relevant business information pertaining to African Construction Markets, and focusing on Sub-Saharan Africa.
  • The website design also required to be inviting, interactive and above all responsive
  • To create a web front-end using the latest technologies and trends designed to portray CONSTRUCT AFRICA’s aims and objectives.
  • The online portal should be powered by the CMS solutions which was highly flexible enough to manage and scale up to updating which happen at the tick of time

The Challenges

  • Competitive Constraints

    Designing and developing such an exhaustive portal tags along a host of problems pertaining to content management-right from the selection, source, categorization, monitoring, and publishing to updating the content constantly catching up with the latest trends and turns in the construction industry.

  • Functional Constraints

    Conventional CMS based solutions had a lot of limitations and pull-backs when it came to flexibility or extendibility.

  • Cost Constraints

    Topping up all these factors was how to bring down the cost-factor of designing developing and managing a 24/7 portal.

The Solutions

After analyzing the requirements, it didn’t take long for CYBOSOL to hit the nail.

  • The implementation of ViMP proved to be a promising platform to deliver high-value content and it was customized for the client for video on demand services.
  • Usage of Celery to task up queues and catch up lists.
  • Effective utilization of Openstack to customize the client’s content delivery and management and to optimize the performance.
  • Symphony was leveraged for ‘app-adaptive’ and scalable interaction.
  • 24 nodes were set up and re-laid for effective back end integration.
  • Use of cloud-powered and cloud- friendly technologies led to the accomplishment of Data security, apps for 24X7 content monitoring apps

The Result

CYBOSOL successfully completed the online portal, which brought in many features in the construction industry domain like columns, video-reports, buzzing on events, social media integration, galleries, payment gateways like PayPal and e-business, everything under one virtual roof.
