VCON Civil and Building Projects started trading as a small close corporation in mid 2007. The company was founded by Markus Venter with the objective to enter the construction environment as a young, dynamic civil and building company, focusing on earth works, civil and building projects in the middle market of the industry.
With more than 15 years experience as a civil engineer technician, Markus has been involved in major bulk earth works, railway construction, civil concrete structures and building development projects. Being proud and dynamic in all aspects of a project, laid a sound foundation for the principals by which VCON trades and executes each project.
Trading for three years, VCON Civil and Building Projects has completed all projects successfully to date. A few new KFC franchises and remodels have been completed by the building division of the company. We also started to enter the housing market, building houses from 1 million up to 10 million rand.
Our civil and earthworks division has successfully completed five major concrete projects for Stein Muller at their new site in Pretoria West. These projects entailed the upgrading of existing, and construction of new concrete surface beds, roads and storm water surfaces.
The VCON civil team also specializes in the construction of machine bases with accurate placing of holding down items at the specified tolerances. We completed the new Stein Muller BHR plant as the main contractors, with a civil and building turnover in excess of 35 million rand. The scope consisted of 20 000m2 new concrete flooring, 15 000 m2 paving, 5000 m2 Gunniting and Gabions. We also completed Turn key building projects for their offices and ablution facilities.
VCON has completed other civil work such as warehousing and resurfacing tarred areas including all the relevant earthworks, drainage and storm water services.
