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 also able to offer clients turnkey refurbishments to office space, or to any other internal facility that requires upgrading. The company has both the skill and capacity to engage with and manage all affiliated trades, and run with the design, planning, and approvals processes, should this be required by respective clients. These “one-stop shop” installations typically include dry-wall partitioning and ceiling reconfigurations and installations, electrical, air conditioning, floor finishes, computer flooring, data cabling and painting. The following gives an idea of typical steps that are involved:
- Agreement on the level of refurbishment/re-design with the Client or Client’s professional team.
- Appointment of a design coordinator/architect/engineer if required.
- The production of a quote encompassing all trades involved.
- The management and overall control of specialist subcontractors ranging from “wet trades” to data cabling.
