Currently, the South African Construction Industry is in a slump it has not witnessed for years. Large companies like Grinaker LTA and Group Five Building are all seeking administration and their demise filters down to smaller businesses. Companies relied on Government tenders for their work and few companies were brave enough to go it alone relying on ‘word of mouth’ or their reputation to secure private work.
One of those companies is Mason West whose motto is ‘building with direction’. Having worked in the industry for 40 years myself I asked Craig Mason to price to do some minor work to my property. Against normal advice I did not seek a second quote relying on my knowledge and Craig’s ‘open door’ policy.
There was no pressure to complete the work immediately but when we agreed a start day Craig, Wayne and his team proved to be very well organized, had a core group of skilled employees and most importantly, did not request a deposit up front which demonstrate to me that finances are managed well.
Communication was impressive. Wayne kept me in the picture on a daily and weekly basis which allowed me to manage my finances with help from Craig. The standard of work was so good in that very little time was wasted making good any mistakes. Attention to detail was remarkable. With using core employees I had no fear of unknown labour working on my property. The work was finished on time and on budget.
I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mason West for all your Building and Civil Engineering needs.
