Where We Come From

Our History

Lovemore & Company was founded by Steve Lovemore in 1990 as a General Contractor.

In 1991 and 1993 respectively Dave Maxwell and David Owen Jones became shareholders. We became MBA members in 1993 when we were initially active in the general contracting market. We have subsequently gradually specialized in the commercial and industrial building market in the Western Cape.

Frustrated by the inefficiencies and confrontational nature of contracting, we began refining a more efficient project delivery process in the 1990’s. This evolved into our current design and supply approach which allows us to deliver maximum value to our clients. At the same time, we have maintained a strong general contracting capability.

In 2006 the 3 founding shareholders commenced with a phased management and ownership transfer process to management staff which has resulted in the current broad based ownership. Currently we have 16 shareholders, including seven historically disadvantaged and one woman shareholder.
