The company started in 2000 as Cape Island Homes, building exclusive residences on Knysna’s Thesen Islands development.

Through a major growth in capacity, expertise and delivery of residential and commercial projects in the ensuing decade Cape Island Construction is today a dynamic, multi-discliplinary construction firm with a track record of excellence.

Our core competencies include proactive management of the entire spectrum of construction activities from inception, through detail design development, to on-site construction and careful financial management.
In addition to our experienced senior management team, we have a motivated team of skilled and semi-skilled employees large enough to ensure that we can deliver our projects on time and to the required standard.

Historically, the bulk of our work has been in the upmarket Residential Sector, a market that we understand implicitly. Within this sector, we have undertaken large, complex multi-unit commercial projects in addition to individual custom-built residences.

Over time, we have developed an extensive skills and resource base to handle the demands of substantial concrete frame structures with the associated wet trades and finishes and have moved towards larger scale commercial projects.
