About SA Building Review - Annual Architectural Resource Handbook

SA Building Review is a national annual resource handbook with its central focus on the identity of building products and services within the built environment in South Africa.  It allows the supplier and manufacturer the opportunity to be identified and exposed in a more detailed and comprehensive manner to the building, architectural and design industry.

SA Building Review’s main focus is on advertorial, therefore giving it a more informative and personal approach to the targeted audiences.

“An advertorial is an advertisement that is written and presented in the style of an editorial or journalistic report”

This allows the reader more insight and knowledge of the products and services offered.

SA Building Review is ABC Certified.
