B. Business Objectives
The Mpumalanga Building Centre will also support the Trust’s core aims and objectives by providing a long desired centre in the north-east of South Africa for the display of materials, products and equipment for the building, construction and building services industries. The Trustees also wish that the building be an example of good building practice and set an example on the use of renewable energy and sustainable practices.
The Centre will be located on land provided by the University of Mpumalanga in Mbobela campus. It will integrate a library for manufacturers’ and suppliers’ literature and will have a comprehensive information recovery system based on the latest information technology techniques for the research and location of materials, products and equipment both from the SA and overseas.
The Centre will also provide facilities for promotional presentations, special exhibitions and demonstrations and will also be able to multitude lectures, conferences and other events for local organisations and professional bodies.

There will also be an educational section to its activities which will provide programmes for schools and colleges.
The Centre must then provide accommodation for displays, storage and study of the exhibitions and information and, of course, facilities for visitors.
The Centre must attract local people, members of the building, construction and building services professions, educational groups and be a venue for courses, conferences and seminars. The business plan forecasts visitor stages in the first year to be about 10,000 annually, with about 1,300 a month during the summer increasing to 30-50,000 annually after five years.
1. Business Need/Opportunity/Objectives
Over the last two years the Trust has experienced a reduced level of income, due mainly to poor performance of the investment portfolio and a decrease in charitable donations. To neutralize this decrease in income the Executive committee have decided to use money from the trust to create a completely owned trading subsidiary, the Mpumalanga Building Centre Ltd: the trust will own 100% of the shares in MPC Ltd, and MPC Ltd will contribute to the Trust via the Gift Aid Scheme.
