The overall architectural design of the developments, from parking facilities to exterior facades, receives detailed attention in an effort to achieve maximum efficiency, convenience and modern aesthetic appeal adapted to the Ugandan context. Careful focus on budgets and schedules have also helped the Company establish an enviable track record for completion of shopping centers on time and within budget.
In addition to designing and constructing their centers, the principals of JKatz Property Development maintain a strong commitment to the projects in their portfolio through their own property management program. This comprehensive program encompasses a variety of activities associated with day-to-day and long term maintenance requirements, as well as tenant relations.

Kampala has the opportunity to meet and surpass the eco-efficiency of many other cities. In 2016, Santa Monica will only be the fourth city in the United States to adopt a rooftop solar mandate for new buildings, and San Francisco’s rooftop solar requirement goes into effect in January 2017.
SUN-DRIED & BURNT BRICKS
New technologies such as interlocking stabilized soil blocks (ISSB) have not been integrated into architectural institutions and thus their adoption has been slow in Kampala. For walls, this could prove to be an important tool for supporting local communities.
While iron sheeting is by far the most commonly used roofing material, largely because of the costs, it is not a preferred material due to its import and inefficiency. Now developers can use other local materials on dwellings that are both efficient and appealing.
Most brick plants are located near the clay source they use to make brick. Brick products come in many forms, including structural uses, face brick, roofing, paving brick, and floors, rather than the generic imported tile.
A variety of timber species are available in Uganda including mahogany, mvule, pine, elgon teak, olive, nkoba, eucalyptus, bamboo and many others. In the construction sector, timber is used for making roof trusses, shuttering, doors, windows and furniture and tools. There is no reason timber should be imported when self-sustaining forests in Uganda provide some of the world's top quality woods.
In many areas, indigenous stone is available from the local region, such as limestone, marble, granite, and sandstone. It may be cut in quarries or removed from the surface of the ground (flag and fieldstone). Ideally, stone from the building site will be utilized. Depending on the stone type, it can be used for structural block, facing block, pavers, and crushed stone.

There are few things we take for granted The objective is to make a yard to reflect environmental consciousness with drought-tolerant landscaping, and second, to make it a happy, useful space for a family. Using sustainable, native landscaping that meets these objectives will not only protect Uganda's natural ecosystem, but it will also cut water requirements and therefore costs.
There are few things we take for granted as much as our ability to turn on the tap and get water in a seemingly endless supply. Even during droughts, and despite warnings about shortages and conservation, most of us treat this precious resource as a given. What many people don’t realize is that it’s fairly easy to implement systems for recycling and reusing water on your own property, through Water Collection and Reuse, Irrigation, and efficient Indoor Water Use, thereby decreasing the demands on shared supplies, and reducing your water bills.
Energy efficient housing often ends up in poorly designed buildings, but that’s not the case for the environmentally sustainable designs available. On a global scale, renewable energy investments are more than double those in fossil fuel power stations, reaching $286 billion at the close of 2015. We are moving away from buildings powered by fossil fuels in favor of clean and cost-effective solar energy. This is not only the smart thing to do, it is also imperative if we are to protect our kids and grandkids from the worst effects of climate change.
