Ceylon Institute of Builders

Ceylon Institute of Builders (CIOB) was established in 1961 by a most illustrious group of engineers and builders of Sri Lanka. It was a very active organization which contributed cohesive systems to the construction industry. We have revived CIOB with the same objectives and adding a few more to address the problems faced by the building industry today. We love and take pride in our stunning work and would like to hear about your next project!
