SMART Civils Construction was founded in 2012, starting out as a civil engineering construction company and operating as a sub-contractor. In 2019 we obtained a CIDB grade 8CEPE / 7GBP, which enabled us to take on more responsibility and operate independently.


Our current business model allows us to work independently or in partnership with larger companies to deliver multi-disciplinary projects. This gives us access to a vast pool of professional engineers, highly skilled quantity surveyors and hands-on project managers.



The addition of a Specialist Division enabled us to expand into structural repairs and strengthening, bridge jacking and bearing replacement, and other specialised solutions for the Civil Engineering Industry.


In 2022 the Post Tensioning Division was started with the acquisition of the Dywidag Licence for Southern Africa. Our recently added Products Division will start with the supply of all Dywidag Geotechnical Products including the market leading Gewi Bar range of products.


We are a partner of choice for government, the private sector, and state-owned enterprises. Our offices are based in Cape Town and Johannesburg, with plans to expand our footprint across Southern Africa and further afield.

Service – to provide an outstanding & vital service to clients
