In 2007, Big Ben diversified its construction activities to include both Commercial and Sectional title developments. Additional mechanized equipment including teleporters, a hoist and conveyors have been acquired and successful commercial and sectional title developments have been completed both on time and within budget.
Specialist staff in these fields have been procured and our abilities and track record continue to expand exponentially.
Big Ben Construction was formerly Century City Construction, which was responsible for the initial residential developments in the Century City precinct. Century City Construction provided a whole ambit of services from Town Planning, to Civil infrastructure, to marketing, construction and final handover to clients of a variety of residential developments at Century City.
In recent years, Big Ben has become more focused, concentrating primarily on pure construction. The skills base and knowledge of all phases of development, particularly residential, however, remain in the company and we are able to share these skills and knowledge with our development clients in the planning of their developments.
Our quality control programmes, developed over many years, enable us to deliver to exacting standards and within budget.
We follow a disciplined growth plan and avoid taking on too many projects at any one time to ensure attention to detail and high quality standards are maintained throughout. We provide our clients with a personal, consistent service.
BigBen Construction is a dynamic, streamlined company, committed to delivering excellence and with the expertise and ability to take on both small and large projects.
We are one of a few companies of our size to own most of the plant required for construction projects, we have a loyal client base and enjoy a high level of repeat business with like-minded developers.
Recent projects undertaken include Waterstone West - a 7000 square metre sectional title residential development, which won the prestigious SAPOA Award for Innovative Excellence for being Top Residential Development in South Africa in 2010 - as well as a number of office blocks in Central Park, all at Century City.
