What we do

CPS develops large scale urban developments to supply safe and equitable homes for thousands of families in Tanzania and East Africa.
Technology impacting a whole economy

To offer large numbers of durable and equitable homes, we are using sustainable and scalable construction technology such as engineered wood products. Industrialised construction technology and pre-manufacturing allow us to produce residential units quickly at low production costs and without compromising in quality.

Concepts with focus on the community

The combination of beautiful, equitable homes within carefully designed masterplans and putting the development of safe, green and family-friendly communities at its core, creates a product which matches the strongly growing demand for homes in Tanzania.

Creation of wealth with flexible financing

Together with financial institutions we are implementing solutions to make the ownership of new homes more accessible for people, families and small business owners who are not bankable and do not have access to financing today. This will strengthen wealth development and support the finance sector's growth in Tanzania.

Our Initiatives

Tree to House

CPS, a real estate developer in Tanzania, is embracing timber as the solution to the challenges of rapid urbanization and carbon emissions. Our company believes that the urbanization challenge presents an opportunity to create sustainable, affordable housing using timber. The potential value chain from timber housing is estimated to be worth 8 billion dollars, making it a viable industry for meeting the housing demands of the future.

Building with timber has many benefits, including reducing construction time and costs while producing high-quality finishes. Timber is also a renewable resource, making it an excellent solution for reducing carbon emissions. CPS is committed to promoting the use of timber in Tanzania and engaging with the government to develop policies that support sustainable forestry. The company is launching a 5,000 unit timber housing project in Dar es Salaam and aims to build 10,000 homes per year in Tanzania.

The potential for timber in Tanzania is vast, with sustainably managed forests and significant sawn timber production. CPS aims to allocate 10% of the forests to sustainable forestry, which could produce enough timber to meet global demand. The company believes that timber technology is modern, beautiful, durable, and sustainable and can create global landmarks, such as the tallest hybrid timber tower in the world, the Burj Zanzibar.

Female STEM support Program

CPS, through its Female STEM support program, is taking a crucial step towards empowering women in STEM. The program aims to address the gender gap in STEM by providing practical learning opportunities and career development to female engineering graduates. With Fumba Town's rapid growth, female graduates can gain high-level skills in their chosen fields and benefit from the program's platform to nurture and empower them towards achieving higher female representation in the engineering industry.

CPS's commitment to empowering and sustainably developing communities is reflected in its Female STEM support program. The program not only benefits female graduates but also contributes significantly to Tanzania's economic development. Fumba Town has injected over $60m into the economy and offers building and service contracts to local companies, providing hundreds of job opportunities to residents living around the project.

Fumba Town is East Africa's first eco-city and offers ultra-modern residential and commercial spaces in a sustainable environment. The iconic town has already attracted buyers from over 50 countries, highlighting its extensive global appeal. With the introduction of the Female STEM support program, CPS is taking a step in the right direction towards promoting gender equity in STEM while also contributing to Tanzania's economic growth.
