We offer services across the spectrum of real estate, infrastructure and the built environment.  We bring together experts in programme and project management, construction management and turnkey delivery, and co-ordinate the full professional team, attracting high-calibre clients across the commercial, industrial, retail, leisure, sports and institutional sectors. .

 

We focus on finding optimal solutions to complex challenges, and to delivering projects of distinction which ensure a return on investment for our clients. We pride ourselves on being a trusted partner and advisor on our clients' projects, from concept to completion. We endeavour to ensure that every project is delivered on time, within budget, and to the highest standard.

 

Our vision is simple: to be recognised as the leading construction and project management company providing service excellence across the African continent.

Betts & Townsend was born out of a determination to be different. Excellence is at the heart of our approach as we constantly strive to provide innovative ways of delivering complex projects and exceeding expectations within a true culture of collaboration.
