Concor

South Africa’s leading black-owned construction company, Concor boasts a proud heritage that is built solidly into the fabric of the country’s infrastructure. As a pioneer of transformation in the construction sector, Concor is a Level 1 B-BBEE company, has 58% women ownership and employs just over 2500 people located across the vast landscapes of South Africa. At the same time, it has deep roots which go back to 1902 contributing to many of the iconic engineering achievements that today define our social and economic landscape. Acquired from Murray & Roberts in 2017 by a consortium led by the Southern Palace Group, Concor is active across the Southern Africa.

With agility as a key differentiator, Concor offers its depth of expertise and experience across a range of industry segments – from civils and building, to roads, earthworks, property development and mining. Concor’s in-house resources, including sought-after skills, plant and equipment, underpin the company’s ability to provide world class solutions to clients and to deliver projects on time, within budget and safely.

Many iconic buildings that are part of our daily lives were constructed by Concor. These include the Melrose Arch Precinct, Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in Pretoria and Portside, Cape Town’s tallest building at 139 metre high. Adept at meeting specialised requirements for modern Data Centres, Concor most recently completed projects for Orange in Botswana and Amazon in the Western Cape. The spectacular BP Head Office in the Oxford Parks Precinct is another award winning project undertaken by Concor. Work is also well underway to complete Oxford Parks Phase 2 as well as 16 On Bree in Cape Town. In partnership with the Western Cape Provincial Government and City of Cape Town, Concor’s development and construction of the Conradie Better Living Model mix-used development in the Western Cape is a significant game changer with a development value of R5 Billion.
