Indawo - The Group

The Indawo Group

| heritage buildings

Our history

To ensure Indawo commits to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) and our clients’ requirements, in terms of their procurement policies, Indawo Group established Luvthis Trading and Investments Pty Ltd trading as Indawo Construction together with a 51% previously disadvantaged shareholder and team.  

Initially, Indawo Cape Pty Ltd commissioned Indawo Construction, as a subcontractor. As such, Indawo Construction established a track record of projects and built credit worthiness with suppliers and developed references to qualify for a relevant CIDB grading. Indawo Cape Pty Ltd  provided training and mentoring along the way.

Establishing a good track record

Once Indawo Construction accomplished this and acquired a CIDB grading, references and track record, Indawo Group commissioned Indawo Construction as our primary tendering company within the group to bid for tenders where preferred procurement is required.

As a result of joint operations the group obtained joint references where Indawo Cape Pty Ltd acted as the main contractor, while Indawo Construction contributed greatly to the success of projects completed within the group.

Indawo Cape Pty Ltd and Indawo Construction operate independently from each other. However, as they are part of the same group of companies,  resources, skills, infrastructure and expertise are combined. As a result, our clients get the best possible solution.
