Synergy expands with new project management division

BY TAI CHISHAKWE - NOVEMBER 17, 2016

Port Elizabeth-based Synergy Property Solutions in October announced that the company has enhanced its project and construction management services through the appointment of Shawn Elkington, who will be heading up its newly-established Project Management division.

“We have found an increased demand for an independent professional Project Management service on a variety of different types of projects but have been restricted in our ability to service these projects due to our Quantity Surveying and Cost Management commitments,” described Grant Hechter, Partner at Synergy.

“That means we are now able to offer Project Management services and able to deliver on all project and client-specific requirements.”

Hechter said that Elkington has extensive experience as a construction manager and thus, able to offer thorough technical input and practical project management of the entire building process.

Elkington will be assisted by Hechter, who has over 15 years’ experience as a Professional Construction Project Manager, together with the full Synergy technical and administrative team.

“Synergy Project Management aims to add value to our current clients and expand our service offering to all Clients requiring a dedicated Project or Construction Management solution,” explained Hechter.

“Our other division, Synergy Quantity Surveying has also been strengthened by the appointment of Donovan De Wit as an associate, in order to service an increasingly diverse client base.”

Synergy currently has several active project management and quantity surveying projects in Port Elizabeth, Stormsriver, Cofimvaba, Cape Town and Johannesburg as well as in Tanzania, Seychelles and St Helena.

“We are excited about the future prospects for 2017 and beyond!” said Hechter.
