Men & Women at work
I am a Master Builder / Strategic Property Developer who has worked on
major projects such as the restoration of the historic Art deco building
“Market House”. I have also aided in developing a special kind of
light weight brick with a company called Cramix which put on me on
page 24 of the Builder's Magazine.
My outstanding engineering skills have also caught the attention of
Theodore Yacht who contracted me whilst I was developing the New York loft
Apartment type styled units for Bobby Breen and Nigel Ladner Burke.
I have also done work with Charles Arton, where we developed a building
called Wolroy House and the 2 story loft Apartment Clip on that
M.Hurworth and Associates tasked me with.
I had done work for M.Hurworth before on projects such as Grey Marine's Fish factory and the first airplane hangar
at Thunder city which is located at the Cape Town Airport. I was required to do major construction and steel works
on these projects at the time. It's clear to see that I am well-schooled when it comes to with working with big projects.
Steel and Concrete form work structures come naturally to me from Airplane hangars to shopping centers at Cape Gate
for stauch vorster architects.
I have had over 30 years of experience in the building industry and structural outdoor signage industry. One of my
previous employers were Omni graphics Outdoor were I got to work with big outdoor companies throughout Africa.
I have a great passion for development and creating opportunities in the Building and Signage industries.
My greatest creative gift would be working with Smart technologies in these industries.
I love esthetics design and functional design. The biggest challenge I have ever faced would be building Market house,
where I had to build a 45 ton staircase internally to link all the units and do that without damaging the building and in
the Center of Cape town in the middle of the CBD in Green Market square.
My greatest wish is to develop full time and create ascetically appealing buildings that will enhance people's
living space as well give them a sense of purpose.
