Sectors We Operate In

  • Industrial
  • Commercial
  • Agricultural

Warehousing and manufacturing facilities have been in demand and in short supply for quite some time.  Tenants are starting to demand well-built facilities as it is not only vital to their ability to operate optimally, but also important to their company image.

We understand the sector and have a strong track record for delivering industrial builds, with speed, cost efficiency and to the highest standards of quality. For that reason, we are the chosen provider for the following asset types:

  • Retail Warehousing
  • Factories & Workshops
  • Produce or Asset Storage
  • Facilities
  • Industrial Parks

Investment and development in Zambia’s commercial sector remains strong, despite the economic headwinds.

Several retail and mixed-use developments have been built in the last five years and many more are planned or under construction.

Serviced offices and apartments, whether part of a mixed-use site or standalone, are also creating significant construction demand. Moreover, Zambia’s tourism industry continues to cater for significant volumes of visitors every year, creating the need for an increasing volume and quality of hotel and accommodation options.

We regularly deliver steel structures, associated works and project management for the following builds:

  • Retail & Mixed Use
  • Developments
  • Offices
  • Hotels & Hospitality Facilities
  • Apartment Complexes

Agriculture is the traditional backbone of Zambia’s economy, contributing 19.8% to GBP and employing 70% of the population. Although other sectors, such as industry, services and mining, now play greater roles, the importance of farming endures.

The agricultural community is realising the value of quality, engineered buildings in order to streamline their operations, reduce their long-term costs and safeguard their products.
We are experienced in delivering high quality agricultural structures and understand what our clients require. We offer a full spectrum of products, including:

  • Dairies & Feedlots
  • Mill Facilities
  • Hay & Grain Storage
  • Piggeries, Hatcheries &
  • Livestock Breeding Facilities

Where We Operate

Our head office is in Lusaka. K2 Construction also operates from Livingstone and the new ‘administrative capital of the South’, Choma, right up to Northern Copperbelt towns such as Mkushi, Ndola, Kitwe and Solwezi.

Zambia is considered one of the most accessible and investor-friendly economies in Sub-Saharan Africa. Like any emerging market, there are bureaucratic challenges, but foreign investment is encouraged and promoted. Even during political events such as elections, Zambia has remained a predominantly peaceful nation with an active economy and sustained foreign investment.

The economy is evenly split, with agriculture accounting for 19.8% of GDP (although it employs approximately 70% of the population). Industry and services account for 33.8% and 46.5%, respectively. Mining, predominantly in the resource-rich Copperbelt, has slowed but still accounts for around 75% of Zambia’s foreign exchange earnings and remains a key industry segment.

The Lusaka market is currently undergoing a strong push for real estate development, in turn creating demand for downstream services. This positive trend is now also spreading outwards into the surrounding rural and provincial areas, sparking growth.

K2 Construction has been operating in Zambia since 2001 and have completed projects from the copper belt right down to Livingstone.

Creation of new urban centres is
driving demand in both housing
and retail sectors


K2 Construction is a tech-forward business and believes that the huge advances we are witnessing in our field should benefit all of our clients; driving operational excellence, cost efficiencies and quality assurance.
In that vein, we offer traditional and modern build systems alike, including:

  • Light gauge steel (LGS)

  • Hot rolled steel

  • Pre-fabricated portal frames

  • Concealed fix roof sheeting

  • Concrete works

  • Wet works

  • Specialised fencing

Our case studies demonstrate how we successfully put these technologies to use.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We are a locally registered Zambian company. We are committed to our local identity and want to ensure that, not only do we function as a local business, we also support and develop the people and economy in all that we do.

Local People. Local Suppliers.

K2 Construction takes training seriously and looks to up-skill our staff based on the requirements of their role, as well as introducing performance management and career path initiatives.
Our internal quality management policy dictates the rigorous pre-qualification and subsequent management of suppliers. However, it remains a priority to source our workforces, materials and services locally wherever and whenever possible. This allows us to develop and empower the local economy, from major suppliers through to individuals, and to make a tangible positive impact on the landscape

We recognise our responsibility towards the environment and towards the communities in which we operate. We seek to make a positive impact, both today and in the future.
