Batch Plant Operator, MASS.Build

Kinigi, Musanze, Rwanda

With more than 10 years of experience working on various projects in Rwanda, MASS identified a critical gap in the infrastructure development market.

For these reasons, MASS launched MASS.Build, a construction arm. MASS offers knowledge, expertise, and realistic expectations up front while maintaining transparency throughout the construction process on the project budget and schedule. With the mission of the project and client as our driver, MASS.Build brings a focus on impact and quality rather than on bottom line profits. Through MASS.Build, MASS offers partners Construction Management and General Contracting services of the highest quality.
