The Hamilton's, Builders Extraordinaire


In 1920 Alexander Hamilton, started a company which traded as A Hamilton Builders. Between the years 1921 and 1930, the company’s reputation spread and they built many of the gracious homes which still stand in the Berea area.

In 1934 Bill Hamilton joined his uncle Alex and the company of Alexander Hamilton (PTY) LTD was formed. Operations were extended to include the construction of factories, hotels, apartment blocks and public buildings, many of which have become landmarks in the City of Durban.

After the war years a renewed surge of business was enjoyed and at the end of 1945, the company fully engaged in contracts involving every type of construction.

Alexander Hamilton was a prominent member of Association, while W.F Hamilton (Bill) went on to serve as Association President from 1957 – 1959.
