The Unforeseen Challenges

 Winner: Single Residential Above R3M, Southern Natal Construction & Jesjo Building Enterprises JV

Every year, once the Excellence in Construction event is behind us, I begin the arduous task of writing and editing copy for the Excellence in Construction web pages on 

The way the process works is that with every entry, the entrant has to provide a detailed description of the project in writing and once the award recipients have been announced, I take that information and summarise it into either three paragraphs or one, depending on whether it  is category winner or a highly commended recognition.

Albeit that it is a slow process and from a time management point of view it takes me out of the loop for a while, I do find it exceedingly interesting. I particularly enjoy learning of the unforeseen challenges that contractors face when embarking upon these projects and how they adapt to overcome them.

Our Excellence in Construction pages should be fully uploaded in about a week’s time. I am aiming for next Friday, Monday week the latest.  If you are interested in finding out more about the winning projects, keep an eye on
