About us

From humble beginnings…

BL Williams Construction was officially formed in the year 1969. The fact is, however, the foundations of this great company were laid down as far back as 1950 – the year a young, soon-to-be-wed Basil Willams did what few other 21-year-olds in his position would do – he built himself a family house.

Displaying uncommon management and construction skills, an eye for detail, a can-do attitude, and uncompromising integrity (hallmarks which have stayed with the company over the years and allowed it to prosper), it wasn’t long before people were lining up to secure Basil Williams’s services.

A major construction company was born.

BL Williams Today

Today, BL Williams is a leading provider of construction management services, with the option of design-build, and integrated project delivery in the Western Cape, specialising in the construction of both upmarket housing and commercial projects in and around Cape Town.

Over the years, we have acquired:

  • An extensive portfolio of high-profile projects, including wineries, golf estates, hotels, upmarket residential properties and renovations on historical buildings.
  • A team of over 100 full-time staff (over and above our regular domestic sub-contractors) – loyal, highly trained, industrious and well accustomed to our systems and ways of working.
  • In-depth knowledge and understanding of the domestic sub-contractor labour market in both the Cape Peninsula and the Boland areas – which allows us access to an enlarged labour pool with above average trade skills and experience, and ensures we choose the right people for the job, every time.
  • A reputation for trustworthiness, high-quality craftsmanship, flexibility, and an ability to match the wants and needs (and budget!) of even our most demanding clients.
    Thanks to the above: a consistently full order book, and long-lasting relationships with clients and partners (including a large proportion of repeat clients).
