Few South African organisations have played a greater role than the South African Forum of Civil Engineering Contractors (SAFCEC) in developing South Africa’s infrastructure, which has been the foundation of the country’s economic prosperity. SAFCEC is registered as an Employers Organisation constituted in terms of the Labour Relations Act, 1995 SS 95-111 on 11 November 1996. As such it is a “not for gain” organisation registered by the Registrar at the Department of Labour. As the national representative of civil engineering contractors, its national office is in Bedfordview, Johannesburg and regional offices include the Northern region which includes Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West and Free State; the Western and Northern Cape; the Eastern Cape; and KwaZulu-Natal. As a member-driven organisation, the regional member committee structure enables SAFCEC to provide its members with ample opportunities to participate in various industry-related matters and decision making processes.
