The construction industry is often accompanied by a range of challenges, including mob activity and conflicts that can disrupt the progress of projects and compromise the safety of workers. Recognizing the need for a positive change, Balwin Properties took a proactive approach through its social impact subsidiary, The Balwin Foundation, by collaborating with multiple stakeholders to address these issues. It has been through their collective efforts that a programme not only ensures compliance with safety and health regulations but also promotes a culture of professionalism and excellence among contractors and subcontractors.311795051_5801574693219744_7211320369636861456_n

The iLembe Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Balwin Foundation, for the third year running, invites local companies to nominate contractors to participate in the programme. The financial support of this programme is provided by the Balwin Foundation and other partners, including Siza Water, Engie Peakers Projects, Saryx Engineers and enable delegates, who participate in the programme to be sponsored by the reputable programme, which is facilitated by the Master Builders Association (MBA) KZN.
