BUILDING A LEGACY
Founded on perseverance, tenacity and unshakable resolve, at GVK-Siya Zama we continue to use these same tools to transform our clients’ visions into buildings of significance and impact.
WHERE IT ALL BEGANThey say that from small beginnings great things can grow – and so it was in 1960 that the GVK-Siya Zama of today had its start in the smallest of ways. Armed with two bakkies, paint, a stepladder, and unwavering drive and determination, high school friends Gordon Verhoef and Earl Krause laid the foundation on which the future of the company would be built.
GIVING POWER TO THE PEOPLEGVK-Siya Zama's greatest strength has always been its people; nurturing, growing and inspiring its employees to continuously strive for excellence. It was this philsophy that led our founders to partner with internal staff as a new era of empowerment dawned over 20 years ago, and it is this philosophy that has led GVK-Siya Zama to its position as one of the most notable, privately-owned construction companies in South Africa today.
A CULTURE OF SUCCESSGVK-Siya Zama has come a long way since the early 1960s, having progressed from small painting and restoration jobs to greenfield projects of significant value and importance. And while construction may be a challenging field, our commitment to realising our clients' visions through hard work, grit, and determination, has helped us develop a valued reputation of trust and integrity throughout the industry.
LOOKING AHEADIt is our bold and fearless attitude, our steely resilience in the face of obstacles, and our uncompromising adherence to safety and quality standards, that have enabled GVK-Siya Zama to grow and expand in the tough construction industry. And it is this, combined with our legacy of expertise, knowledge and innovation, upon which we will continue to build our success, creating a future of prosperity, promise, and possibility.
At GVK-Siya Zama, our value lies in our people – how we grow them, how we inspire them, how we empower them. Building a future means building our employees, and in order to ensure our collective ongoing success, our business practices are founded on respect, responsibility, integrity, and uncompromising principles:
- To provide significant opportunities for growth.
- To recognise individual contributions and reward hard work.
- To encourage active employee participation to achieve results.
- To ensure a safe, controlled working environment at all times.
- To train, mentor and nurture our employees in order to ensure the continued growth, evolution and profitability of our company.
Construction is a meticulous, detail-oriented, challenging process; from planning and development through to conclusion, each completed phase is the result of experience, perseverance, dedication and hard work. Our success is a collaborative achievement, made possible through the tireless efforts of our staff, clients, suppliers and sub-contractors, and a resolute commitment to meeting targets on time, every time.
