In South Africa, and for the most part of the developing world, the construction contractor is often not fully educated in the administrative side of his business, and this is worsened when they do not understand English to the same extent as the professionals who engage with them. These professionals are agents of the employer, and as such do not care much for the plight of the contractor. Being, misled and underpaid the contractor is bound to make little or no profit, and the majority barely make a living to speak of, and learn as they work as they are not taught what they need to know before being engaged in contracts.

As per legislative requirements, ALL who wish to be contractors have to register with the CIDB (Construction Industry Development Board) the registration is allocated in classes or grades, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest. This grading allocates the work for each in accordance with complexity and grading also has a financial reference.

This grading means that many who in the industry never actually get to participate due to lack of knowledge, by illustration, the serious contractors only emerge from the grades 3, 4 & 5 where they become active participants in the industry, the majority, (over 60 000 nationally), never get work.

The purpose of providing affordable workshops geared at educating the contractor at grades 3 to 5 is the main aim of the education sector of this enterprise. Furthermore, they may than participate in the pricing academy and by utilizing our resources, learn to price a bid document correctly with a view towards a better outcome all round.

Hence:- "Better contractor, better product, better industry" it is that simple.

Better Housing - from better planning and documentation

Plenty of the average people who wish to build houses do not have proper plans, and because of that, they cannot qualify for NHBRC or Bond Holder support. The plans many have also fall far short of the SANS 10400 (Previously National Building Regulations 1990) and as such cannot be approved by the Municipality or a Building Control Officer in the municipal role.

These days plans (any structure over 1m2 in area, and over 1m above the ground) have to comply with the following:-

Prepared by a SACAP registered individual (Architectural Professional) SANS 10400 and NHBRC requirements.
