Thandi ndlovu established the motheo construction group in 1997. She teamed up with chris cudmore and tim potter and under the trio’s leadership, motheo developed into south africa’s leading, predominantly black female owned and managed construction company. We are the leading provider of Social Housing in the country, but we are far more than a housing company. Having branched out into general building, civil construction, water saving technologies, electrical works, as well as having established a fully fledged academy, Motheo is a formidable force in the construction industry. One of our key focus areas is the development of young talent. Having diligently worked on this over the years, 35% of the company’s shares are black female owned, as well as a Board seated with four black females. Through Dr. Ndlovu’s involvement, Motheo is a founder member and leading role player in South African Women In Construction (SAWIC). Dr. Ndlovu was the past president of the Black Business Council for the Built Environment. While the company has grown and diversified into other fields, Motheo remains fully committed to Social Housing. CORE VALUES We believe in embracing all people of our nation - working together to bring true change. We put roofs over heads, but we also put work boots on feet. We believe in giving real opportunity to young South Africans, with genuine authority and responsibility. We believe in building our nation not only with bricks and mortar, but with the powerful spark that comes from unity. KEY FOCUS AREAS One of our key focus areas is the development of young talent.

ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLINESS Besides valuing your time, your money and your vision for the project, we also value the Mother Nature as well…It cannot be denied anymore, that even the small construction implements the nature in a bad way… That’s why we’re leading the effort to use only ecofriendly materials and comply with keeping the environment unpollluted by the work we do!
