The Association of Schools of Construction of Southern Africa (ASOCSA) Built Environment conference series in its 18th year of existence continues to be one of the major cutting edge built environment conferences on the African continent. Since its inception in 2006, the blind peer reviewed conference proceedings have been referred to by both private and public sector policy and decision makers. The series produces a post-conference edition of the Journal of Construction, which is on the list of journals approved by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) for subsidy.
