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.
Scheltema is a certified asbestos remover. Trained labour, project management capability and logistics capability combine to position the company to take on a wide variety of asbestos and re-roofing projects.
Scheltema has recently been involved in upgrade and refurbishment projects at Uitsig, Scottsdene and Hanover Park for the City of Cape Town where the company replaced asbestos roofs with fibre cement roof covering, and installed new ceilings.
Industrial revamps typically include stripping asbestos sheets, refurbishing and repainting structural steelwork, supply and fitment of environmentally friendly insulation and the fitting of new roof covering. Scheltema is currently involved in a number of such projects for a diverse group of large property owners. The company has recently completed ‘’Bravo’’, a mattress factory in Epping Industria2 for Metropolitan life and a production facility for MBSA (Mercedes) in East London.
