Our expertise in the building industry and project management contribute to our successes linked to small, medium, large and mega projects. Our management team incorporate experience and expertise to suite all requirements containing graduate degrees in quantity surveying, architecture, construction management and engineering that enables a perfect project management structure for projects of all sizes.
Our recent clientele enables us to deliver larger and larger projects successfully, albeit based on turnkey, lump sum, cost plus or re-measurable contracting terms, whilst being able to comply with all contractual requirements with regards to performance and other guarantees.
We comply with legislation and is NHBRC and CIDB registered with a current BBEE Level 4 grading.
VPC contracts in the Educational, Healthcare, Commercial, Industrial, Retail, Hospitality, Leisure, and Public Works sectors. This division is ideally suited to undertake contracts up to R500 million and has developed a reputation for completing projects with complex designs in time and budget to the best quality standards.
We provide all services relating to the building industry requirements, from sub-structure to superstructure, all service installations up to defined finishes.
In order to ensure cost effective pricing and effective time management, VPC decisively manage and operate its own earthworks and bulk infrastructure portions of projects. Our earthworks activities include demolition and bulk excavations with small to large scale earthmoving equipment as may be required to meet the time, efficiency and environmental requirements specified by the project and legislative specifications. Previous projects incorporate the excavation and successful rehabilitation and subsequent habitation of even landfill and building rubble sights.
Our earthworks division specialize in site clearance, bulk excavation for basements or other areas, terrace and platform construction. Whilst the services are not limited to the aforementioned, we also contract to do layer works, sub soil drainage systems, stone pitching and gabions, landscaping and reclamation.
Other than our concrete works specialities, our civil works division regularly encounter and conclude works relating to road construction and maintenance, storm water management, raft and other foundations, retaining structures, open channel and V-drains, structural and other steelworks and paving.
Our vast range of expertise allow us to consult and conclude works relating to maintenance and repairs of damaged or poorly constructed structures, with the certified consent of our structural engineers.
VPC is specialist paint applicators, certified and approved by all major paint manufacturers, which therefore maintain the manufacture’s guarantee on application. Our application methodology includes for spray-on, brush or roll and the application depend on location and client specific requirements.
Certified health & safety practitioners audit our working conditions on a regular basis and we view health and safety as the utmost importance. Compliance to legislation dictate our approach and we therefore appoint and/train applicators that are trained for working at height risks in addition to having our own inhouse scaffolding supply and certified erectors.
Preferential rates are granted by our paint manufacturer’s, based on the volumes procured with VPC. Technical support, advice and training are given when required.
VPC is approved applicators for two waterproofing systems, with very diverse applications and outcomes, consciously providing the end user with better options. Both options are underwritten and guaranteed by our material suppliers, backed by our workmanship guarantee. Both waterproofing systems are based on the need for a flexible and durable product, one being a waterproof skin membrane to replace torch on products, whilst the other is an integrated latex product, used in combination with cement products, providing a cohesive and waterproof mixture.
WATERPROOF SKIN MEMBRANE
is a two-component mortar, based on cementitious binders, fine-grained selected aggregates, special admixtures and synthetic polymers dispersed in water. When the two components are mixed together, a free-flowing mix is obtained which may be easily applied, even on vertical surfaces, at a thickness of up to 2 mm in one single coat. Due to the high content and quality of the synthetic resins, the cured layer remains constantly flexible under all environmental conditions and resistant to the chemical attack of de-icing salts, sulphates, chlorides and carbon dioxide. The product has excellent bonding properties to all concrete, masonry, ceramic and marble surfaces, as long as they are sound and sufficiently clean. This property, together with its resistance to the deteriorating effect of UV rays, a characteristic of this product, ensures that structures protected and waterproofed have a long service life, even if they are located in areas with particularly difficult climatic conditions, in coastal areas with a saline rich atmosphere or industrial areas where the air is particularly polluted. The performance of this waterproof skin membrane can be further improved with the addition of a non-woven, macro-holed polypropylene fabric, permeable to water, for reinforcing waterproofing membranes. Thanks to the high mechanical properties of the products, the characteristics of waterproofing membrane, such as toughness, punch-resistance, ultimate elongation and crack-bridging, are further improved.
WATERPROOF LATEX INTERMIX
This is a modified acrylic latex product, formulated especially for incorporation into cement compounds and acts as a water replacement for sand and cement mixtures. It is useful for waterproofing, damp proofing, flexibility improvement, adhesion, strength and plaster durability. The product can be used to repair large, damaged cementitious surfaces such as walls and floor screeds or to repair areas where very thin films (feather edging) are required. It can also be used on flower boxes, in the plaster below damp proof course (DPC) to stop damp rising and for the construction of fish ponds.
Latex Intermix creates the following beneficial properties:
