Setting the Benchmark in Ceilings and Partitioning

Founded in Cape Town in 1931, Scheltema has been specializing in roofing, ceiling and partitioning applications for over 80 years and has become a market leader. In the specialised field of ceilings and partitioning it has made significant contributions to a great number of noteworthy projects, both regionally and nationally.

Ceilings and Partitions are an integral part of any building in that their function is to hide services, provide aesthetic value, and provide thermal and acoustic properties. As they constitute a highly visible part of any building’s interior, they are often deemed to be finishing trades within the building industry. It goes without saying that quality needs to be of the highest standard, and it is precisely because of their track record for producing top quality work – in time and on budget – that Scheltema have been so successful in winning tenders and procuring high profile projects.

Prestigious ceiling and partitioning contracts undertaken by Scheltema include Cape Town International Airport, The Taj Hotel, CTICC, V&A Waterfront, Stellenbosch University, 15 on Orange, the Old Mutual Head Office in Pinelands and Bayside Shopping Centre and Century City. Furthermore, Scheltema has facilitated major revamps and extensions for retail clients such as Pick ‘n Pay, Shoprite, Woolworths and Checkers, where work has been completed without any disruption to trading whatsoever.

Scheltema’s Ceilings Division is diversified in its operations. The company’s ‘’Commercial Ceilings’’ (commonly referred to as “suspended” or “lay-in’’ ceilings), ‘’Residential Ceilings’’ (commonly referred to as ‘’nail-up’’ or ‘’skimmed’’ ceilings), timber ceilings, partitioning, and computer flooring capabilities cover the full spectrum of the market requirement.

In terms of materials used, Scheltema’s experience and skilled labour force means that the company is able to source and utilize a diversity of products to meet their client’s demands, requests, and specifications.

In addition to new builds, Scheltema is fully capable of undertaking major refurbishments to office space, or any other internal facilities that require upgrading. “We are able to provide turnkey solutions that incorporate full project management of the revamp, since we have both the skills and capacity to engage with and manage all affiliated trades, and run with the design, planning, and approvals process, should this be required by our clients,” confirmed company MD, Michael van Breda.

Scheltema is fully compliant with respect to all Health and Safety legislation and is a LEVEL 4 BBBEE accredited company.
