Scheltema has developed capabilities beyond its core of roofing, ceilings and partitioning which serve to further enhance its positioning within the marketplace. These include projects aligned to national infrastructure roll-out, projects implemented nationally and beyond South Africa’s borders, and long term projects that require significant project management capability. In addition, the company has earned a strong reputation in the fields of timber frame construction, asbestos removal, specialist roof construction, heritage projects and turnkey office refurbishments.
The company renovated multiple existing cabins and built a number of new timber frame structures to complete the project. Apart from the impressive carpentry roll-out, features of interest include: footings designed to ‘’touch the earth lightly’’, fully insulated and lightweight internal and external walls, dry loos, water harvesting and solar water heating. The project is considered a great success by Cape Nature, Provincial Government and all related stakeholders. The company is well positioned for these kinds of projects in the future.
