About us

Who we are

Farao Construction was established in October 2011 by owner and founder, Ettienne Posthumus. Since then we have grown into a well-known and respected building contractor, especially in the upper class housing market. Farao Constuction has completed a large number of residential and civil projects in the Kouga area during the past couple of years and have also become acquainted with the building challenges faced in larger projects. Since then we’ve expanded to include areas surrounding the Kouga district along the Garden Route area.


We are committed to our clients and will always endeavor to finish quality projects, on time and within budget. Our Mission is to offer a professional and quality service through an effective, representative and participative team. We strive to be straight-forward, open and approachable in all relationships and with all team members. Honesty and openness creates trust.

Why trust farao construction?

Our Mission

To offer a professional and quality service; through our effective, representative and participative team to the Building and Development Industries and to the Community.

Professionalism & Performance

No compromises. No shortcuts. Just hard work and high standards. We’re proud of our reputation for efficiency and we believe it’s the direct result of our hands on approach and careful integration of all our service components. Constant self-evaluation and appraisal of our services help us reaffirm and refine our core business. As the industry evolves, so do we. As technology changes, so do we. With one area of predictability: our unwavering commitment to quality and our desire to remain at the forefront of construction in South Africa.

Thanks to our dedicated team we are able to manage the entire construction process from concept to completion – Effectively, Efficiently and on Time.

Cost efficient

We know that the project budget for the client is of paramount importance. We combine exhaustive planning and cost-effective application of resources to ensure that the only financial surprises you as client encounter, are pleasant ones.

Quality & Workmanship

Over the past 40 years or so, the founder, Ettiene Posthumus, realised that quality workmanship would increasingly become the only differentiator between smaller scale building contractors. It is this early realisation that has driven our desire to be recognised for the quality of our workmanship, the materials we use and above all, our people. We undertake to not only meet your expectations, but to exceed them. We are committed to achieve these high standards and all employees at all levels endeavour to commit to, and take responsibility for, achieving this goal.

Openness, straight–forward, approachable

We strive to be straight-forward, open and approachable in all relationships and with all team members. Honesty and openness for us create trust. And with trust you can built on good relationships.

After sales service

There is no better advertisement than a satisfied client. Team members are on hand to attend to any unforeseen construction problems at short notice.
