Ken is a master builder entrepreneur with an incredible flair for design, an eye for detail and a passion for perfection.
Ken has been in the construction industry for almost 50 years qualifying as a draughtsman in 1970 and then as an electrical consulting engineer in 1972. The early part of his career was spent on large commercial projects such as the Parklane clinic in Johannesburg, the Standard Bank Head Office in Market Street, the Swartkops Power Station in Port Elizabeth and the Malelane Sugar Mill in Mpumalanga.
In 1975 Ken began building houses and completed his first house in Helderkruin, Roodepoort in that same year. He continued building houses, many of which were designed by himself, for nearly 20 years until in 1992 he left the building industry to pursue the second of his lifelong passions.
Between 1992 and 2002 Ken designed and manufactured several ranges of golf equipment that became successful global brands. The company which boasted brands such as Avenger, Anvil and Safari Golf Equipment was eventually sold to the Gary Player Group.
In 2002 Ken re-entered the construction industry and completed more than 30 homes in many suburbs of the greater Johannesburg, two petrol stations in Soweto before joining forces with Grant.

Grant qualified as a bachelor of commerce from the University of South Africa in 1993 and after winning the prestigious Kessel Feinstein Award for the highest marks in accounts III, cut short his pursuit of accounting honors to pursue a career in magazine publishing.
By the age of 24 Grant would own Redsand Publishing the largest contract publishing group in SA, which owned and published 22 magazines, a newspaper, had its own design and reproduction company and also owned half a radio station. The company had 165 staff members and turned over R 30 million a year. In 2001 it was sold to Core Holdings a company listed on the JSE.
In 2002 Grant started Orange Press Publishing which would later become Push Media Holdings and traded successfully until 2010 when Grant sold the business to Highbury Safika Media (Pty) Ltd a Cape Town based publisher who wanted a Johannesburg based operation. Grant managed the Johannesburg operation reporting directly to the CEO for 18 months before leaving the publishing industry and starting his first building project.
Grant began studying building plans, the NHBRC guidelines and other building related resources and build an excel based costing tool that would provide extremely accurate costing information and a vital business tool that is still key to the business today.
