Mr. Umer Mumtaz, Director Business Development & Marketing Build Con talks to Engineering Post

Build Con, founded in 2018, has made remarkable strides in the market within just five years of operation. With a strong focus on increasing market share, the company has not only achieved growth but also contributed to the creation of employment opportunities. By working on complete MEP projects, Build Con offers comprehensive solutions in plumbing, electrical, firefighting, HVAC, and supply installation.

During a recent exclusive conversation with Engineering Post, Umer Mumtaz, Director of Business Development & Marketing at Build Con said “Our objective has always been to expand our market share and contribute to the growth of both the company and the economy. As our business expands, we are proud to provide employment opportunities and contribute to the overall development,”

Build Con has a commitment to delivering high-quality products which is why they are using the brands like Hepworth (Plumbing) and LifeCo (Firefighting) which have been used worldwide as top-quality brands. Umer Mumtaz proudly remarks, “The fact that our products have been installed in iconic structures like the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa is a testament to the quality and reliability we offer.”

In the field of firefighting, Build Con exclusively uses Lifeco products and is the South region’s distributor for Pakistan. Umer Mumtaz mentions, “We take immense pride in being the exclusive distributor for Lifeco products in the South region of Pakistan. Our latest project at Shaukat Khanum DHA City Hospital involved the installation of their fire suppression system, and we also undertook plumbing work for the facility.”

Build Con’s portfolio includes collaborations with renowned builders and developers such as Emaar, Machiyara, Rasheeda, Bahria Town, Roshan Tower, Park Lane tower and the Greenline BRT project with Sindh Government. Mumtaz emphasizes, “We have established successful partnerships with private builders such as Lakhani Builders and Dolmen Group, demonstrating our ability to work with diverse stakeholders in the industry.”

However, Build Con has faced challenges due to import restrictions, leading to losses for the business. Umer candidly admits, “The current import restrictions have caused us losses, and we are in a constant war for survival. Nevertheless, we remain committed to meeting our previous contractual obligations, even if it means enduring losses.”

Umer believes that the market is on the verge of a turnaround, stating, “We understand that the market operates in cycles, and we are prepared for the upcoming turn. In order to diversify our market share, we are actively working on tenders with organizations such as the Armed forces, Cantonment Board, KPT, Parco, and SSGC etc.”

One significant milestone for Build Con is their involvement in the construction of Shaukat Khanum Hospital. Umer Mumtaz expresses his pride, saying, “Working on the Shaukat Khanum Hospital project is a source of great pride for us. It represents our commitment to contributing to essential infrastructure that benefits society as a whole.”

Looking ahead, Build Con is aiming at exponential growth so as to triple the size of the company in the next five years. Umer acknowledges, “We are aware that achieving these ambitious targets requires us to operate as a professional company and continue to provide high-quality products and services to our customers.”

Umer concludes by emphasizing the importance of creating awareness about the quality of their products. “We understand that consumer awareness about the quality of products is crucial. It is our responsibility to create awareness and ensure that consumers recognize the value we bring to their projects.”
