We are strongly committed to development opportunities in Sub-Saharan Africa and supporting our clients to achieve their business objectives.
Mace has been operating in Africa since 2008 where we've delivered a number of market-defining projects across the continent.
From our hub office in Johannesburg, we have worked with public and private sector clients in southern, western and eastern Africa and fully understand how to support clients' needs and deliver to the requisite high standards in what can be challenging environments.
From our offices in South Africa, Angola, Kenya and Nigeria we have also delivered projects in Botswana, Ghana, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.
Client interests as our focus
We understand the constraints and operational demands of delivering high-quality outcomes in developing environments and place significant emphasis on building strong relationships in the territories we support. African states are often subject to difficult and complex conditions, but our ability to resource and plan strategically and our determination to overcome supply chain and logistical issues means we always put our clients' interests first.
Integrated service offer
The degree of integration that joins our many areas of construction-related expertise makes our offer unique. We have the skills to deal with all aspects of the project lifecycle; from the technical, planning and contractual issues to financial and stakeholder management.
Whether commissioned to provide a specific competency or our integrated service offer, what unites our service provision is our relentless pursuit of finding a better way to deliver the best projects safely and efficiently, while defining industry best practice.
Global knowledge, local delivery
We have experts working across the globe and place a strong emphasis on combining this international know-how with local experience. With a strong culture of knowledge sharing, we bring significant experience to each project and each experience informs the next. It is this culture of collaboration and continuous innovation that sets us apart.
