Company History

Alfdav Construction cc was formed in 1986 by David Zamxaka as a draughting and design company (M.D.Z. Designers); he decided to open a branch of their construction activities in Uitenhage and successfully completed various small works and projects in and around Uitenhage and Port Elizabeth area.  David Zamxaka moved to be based at Port Elizabeth where he was involved with a few associations and organizations namely:- East Cape Builders association, The Urban Foundation, BIFSA, MA and The Perm Building Society.  In 1988 he joined forces with SBT Construction (East Cape) (Pty) Ltd and few other players in the construction industry on route to continuous learning, gaining experience and growing the business.

In 1995 the company incorporated as a close corporation (Alfdav Construction cc) where more effort and emphasis was on business development processes and programs, venturing beyond the comfort zone where the primary aim was identified, techniques pursued and turned into a development of a strategic objective in realizing and achieving the dream that was, we call this "a call to arms", hence the name ALFDAV (All Labouring For Developing African Values) and Watch Us Construct.
