It was a pleasure being associated with MBC.
A company is as good as its people, and where we can, for any project, we like to choose the right people!

A project brought in on Budget, in Programme with absolute commitment to Quality is what we consider a successfully managed project. Mike Buyskes Construction is all about the people - focussed staff, hands on, innovative and attention to detail!

Well done, we were delighted with the finished product and the professional manner in which construction process was managed.

Here's looking forward to the next one!

Best regards

Nicholas Plewman Architects has had the privilege of working with Mike Buyskes Construction for more than a decade. It is no exaggeration to say that it has been a privilege and that over a considerable number of projects brought to successful completion together, the professionalism, dedication, reliability and simple team spirit that Mike and his team have brought to these projects is unequalled by any other experience I have personally had in the industry.

The 5.30 am phone call with which Mike announces the resolution of a tricky problem (that sometimes the architect has not yet even realized was a problem) he has been pondering in the wee hours has become a hallmark of Mike's "hands on" leadership.

Mike Buyskes Construction have a record of meeting even the most unreasonable time lines without compromising attention to detail. But I think what in my book ultimately sets Mike Buyskes Construction apart is the spirit of cooperative team work they bring to projects. Where so often the client, contractor and professional team inhabit mutually suspicious corners of the widest table they can find, the debate at an MBC site meeting is no less forthright and robust, but never antagonistic and I have never encountered a problem so insurmountable that it cannot be resolved around one of Mike's legendary prawn curries.

As architects it is essential that we deliver our clients with the best quality end project, thus we need to appoint contractors of the highest quality. The criteria which I generally use when electing a building contractor is workmanship, service delivery and price. Mike Buyskes Construction meets these criteria time after time.

In my experience their cutting edge is as a result of teamwork and an ability to meet my expectations in a professional and timely fashion. I have found them innovative and solution orientated and will not hesitate to recommend them to any developer.

We have in the past been involved with Messrs Mike Buyskes Construction as the Main Building Contractors on Two (2) Projects, namely:

  • FH Chamberlain Trading, Montana Branch, Pretoria-North - completed in 2009.
  • FH Chamberlain Trading, new Silver Lakes Branch, Pretoria-East - recently completed in 2012.

Messrs Mike Buyskes Construction, on both Projects was included on an invited Tender List, where they in both incidents were the lowest Tenderer and therefore appointed as the successful Main Building Contractors.

On both Projects we can confirm:

  1. Day to day management in general was of a high standard, Project Programmes, general Reports, input at Site meetings, etc. was of value to the Projects.
  2. The JBCC Principal Building Agreement was diligently understood and their responsibilities managed accordingly.
  3. Sub-contractors were well managed
  4. Quality of work in general was of a high standard
  5. Housekeeping on Site was good.
  6. Insight into time constraints and progress required was generally good and their enthusiasm and willingness to resolve any matters with the Client and Consultants was appreciated.

Both Projects were successfully completed, on Programme and within budget and to the satisfaction of the Client and Consultants Team. We therefore have no doubt I recommending or giving Messrs Mike Buyskes Construction a positive referral.

We have been involved with Mike Buyskes Construction over the past few years. Recently Mike Buyskes Construction completed a large commercial development for M & T Development in Centurion.

Working closely with the M & T Development team, this key project was successfully completed on programme and within budget while providing for a very high standard of workmanship and finish.

We found our association with Mike and his team extremely rewarding. At all stages, whether it had been in the concept, the commercial negotiations, contract development and construction stages of the project, each respective member of his administration and construction teams where always most professional and accommodating. Mike, himself being very hands on and is extremely solution orientated, quick to grasp the problem and able to provide solutions.

We would not hesitate to commend Mike Buyskes Construction for the successful and professional manner our project was completed, as his team delivered on all aspects of the contract.

Yours faithfully

MBC were the Main Contractors on a Stay Easy Hotel for the Southern Sun in Witbank.
The hotel is a concrete framed structure with concrete floors, cavity brick walls, and crammed full of services such as full airconditioning, smoke detection, sprinklers etc. requiring a great deal of detailed programming and coordination.

The contract was carried out professionally, within a tight programme and produced a building with a good standard of finish.

I would welcome the opportunity of working with MBC in the future and would recommend  them for building structures, similar to the above.


Yours faithfully,

Mike Buyskes Construction was selected, amongst seven other companies, to construct The Fairway Hotel, Conference Centre and Spa.

The project comprised the erection of 62 rooms, 7 villas, a spa, a gatehouse, site works and parking of an approximate area of 7073 m2  over the course of 12 months. The total value of construction came to R135 million (excl. VAT).

This was a fast-track project and Buyskes Construction performed exceptionally well under an immense amount of pressure, to ensure timeous completion. Given the circumstances they acquitted themselves remarkably well.

During early 2010 Bokomo Foods awarded the tender to construct a new factory at the Clayville premises to Mike Buyskes Construction. The value of this contract was in the excess of R50 million.

The project was completed within the agreed time and budget constraints. The second phase of the site development was also awarded to Mike Buyskes Construction and this was also executed to the satisfaction of the client.

We have found that Mike Buyskes Construction is very professional and committed to what they are doing. Problems encountered during the execution of the project were addressed and resolved.

It has been a pleasure working with them and we will at recommend them for any new building and construction work.

It gives me pleasure to recommend Mike Buyskes Construction.

This company recently completed our Silver Lakes Project on time and under budget, value approximately R120 million. This was the second major construction project which they completed for our group.

In addition we have known Mike Buyskes and his company as a client in Pretoria for 30 years and their large account is always paid strictly in 30 days.

After the completion of the Silver Lakes project we hosted a black tie celebratory dinner to thank them for the energy and effort that they put into our project. They were a pleasure to work with.
