The opening of GIBB’s new head office in Woodmead, Johannesburg coincides with the firm’s 60 year anniversary and according to Group CEO Richard Vries, marks an important milestone for the firm.

“We look at how far we have come - from such humble beginnings - and now our brand can be seen from a distance, right up there with the best in the industry,” he said.

Vries alluded to the past decade which proved to be significant in terms of growth and diversity.

In 2013 GIBB acquired 70% of leading architectural firm SVA International, and only last year the firm brought Strategic Environmental Focus (SEF), a respected South African environmental services consultancy, into their fold.  

The new Office in 54 Maxwell Drive, Woodmead boasts state of the art facilities and ample parking for visitors.
