About us

South Africa’s leading, predominantly black female owned and managed construction company.

Our History

The late Dr. 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. We pride ourselves in being 

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.

The company is currently registered with the CIDB as 9 GB PE, 9 CE PE, 7 EB PE and 8 EP PE. Motheo has been registered with the NHBRC since its inception and remains in good standing. As of 2020, Motheo holds an ISO9001 accreditation.

While the company has grown and diversified into other fields, Motheo remains fully committed to Social Housing.
