Celebrating 50 years in modular building excellence

Kwikspace’s Agrément South Africa and SANAS certified units deliver a minimum life of 20 years.

ESTABLISHED in 1972, Kwikspace, Africa’s largest supplier of prefabricated buildings, is celebrating 50 years in business. Having produced buildings ranging from small mobile security posts (2 m x 2 m buildings) to assembly halls, chapels and complex 1 200 m2 layouts, Kwikspace has become the authority on modular building solutions. It supplies a wide range of building units for purchase or rent, including clinics, bathrooms, kitchens and dormitories, to customers across southern Africa.

At its ISO-accredited manufacturing facilities in Gauteng and Cape Town, covering a total area of over 20 000 m2, Kwikspace produces almost 800 units each year. Offered in a standard industry accepted panelised system, or Agrément South Africa and SANAS certified, units deliver a minimum life of 20 years, which is warranted by Kwikspace. Constructed using Chromadeck steel Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) injected with specialised polyurethane, Kwikspace units are robust, weather-proof and thermally efficient.

The modular nature of these SIPs enables flexibility and scalability. In a single installation, Kwikspace constructed a 45 000m2 office (all under one roof) for a customer, quickly and cost-effectively.

All Kwikspace units can be customised with logos, brand-specific paint colours, furniture, verandas, handrails, and more. The customisability of the units lends itself to unlimited creativity; collaborations with interior designers, for example, has yielded trendy, modern and exciting results. This was the case in a recent project for Msanda Laboratories, which sought to upgrade its Komatipoort border Covid-19 testing stations and purchased two Kwikspace units. Fitted with stylishly colourful furniture, painted interior panels and indoor plants, these new testing stations are comfortable and inviting.

With branches strategically situated across the country, Kwikspace delivers its mobile buildings to clients wherever they are, with minimal disruptions. A commitment to prompt delivery means customers receive purchases 2-6 weeks from order, with rentals delivered within 5 working days from order.

To meet the growing demand for modular building solutions both locally and beyond our borders, Kwikspace has launched the Kwik Kit – a prefabricated unit delivered in component form, together with detailed construction drawings that enable the user to carry out unit assembly.

“Kwikspace has a proud of legacy of product excellence, exceptional customer service and innovative solutions. This is made possible through commitment of our incredible personnel, who share our vision for smart space solutions. We look forward to another 50 years as Africa’s leader in alternative building technology,” comments Dirk Steinberg, CEO and Financial Director.
