Who we are

Founded in 1994, Yikusasa Building Contractors has grown to be nationally recognised for its work in the construction industry.  A foundation of hard work, dedication and trusted relationships continues to enable us to deliver quality builds, on time and on budget, for our clients.

From greenfield builds to refurbishments we take on medium to large projects and have successfully joint ventured with the bigger role players in the industry on larger projects. Whatever the project, we want our customers to view Yikusasa not only as a contractor but as a committed partner who is dedicated to helping you accomplish all your project goals.

Our vision

Our vision is to be the number 1 black-owned medium-size contractor in SA. The firm is currently CIDB category 8GB PE, and has ambition to reach the top category of 9. Our planning, process and operations need to deliver the best result for our clients, whilst uplifting the communities in which Yikusasa builds.

Yikusasa means “the future” in isiXhosa and for the future development and economic success of the country, we believe that Black Economic Empowerment plays an essential part. The construction industry is perfectly placed to reinforce hope and ambition within previously disadvantaged communities, while helping them obtain the necessary skills and experience required to succeed.
