Residential 

Building a new home or renovating an existing one will not only provide you and your family with security and comfort, but also an investment that will appreciate in value of years to come. Carstens Projects constructs homes across South Africa and offers two options for building and renovations:

Direct construction:

Assistance with the drafting of plans (if required), detailed cost estimates, the building of your new home/renovation and quality control. Carstens Projects undertakes construction using our own experienced building crew and approved sub-contractors. 

Project management:

A concept-to-completion service where the project is put out to tender and several building quotations are presented to the client with recommendations. The client then decides who will undertake construction and Carstens Projects manages the process on behalf of the client at an agreed fee.

The benefit of project management is that the client can be assured that:

  • The building contractor has been thoroughly screened,
  • The materials being used are exactly to specification,
  • All construction work complies with the applicable regulations of both local authorities and the NHBRC,
  • Building and construction will be done to budget and deadline.
