Managing Director Gift Mpho Mogodi, a qualified Civil Engineer with over 15 years’ experience in the industry, describes what gives Ratehang Projects the edge:

"You need to bold to tap into this male dominated industry. One must know before choosing this career that the lives of people are in our hands because you will be building different infrastructures which need to be sound and of superior quality. We need professionals who don’t construct buildings which are collapsing and roads which don’t reach their lifespan due to lack of knowledge and inferior quality. Women who want to be on this field they really need to have passion and eager to learn every day and be hands on."

With major clients including the Department of Infrastructure Development, Department of Health, PRASA, Group Five and WBHO, Ratehang Projects is actively contributing to building a better South Africa. As Mogodi explains, “We do our share to assist in the eradication of poverty by the creation of decent employment in our sector for our beautiful country. We are transforming the image of our public institutions to have similar images like our private institutions. We provide training opportunities to engineering students and graduates in order to build broader participation in a field with a scarcity of young black talent."

All projects are delivered on time and within budget to ensure maximum financial return, ensuring long term growth and stability, which will maximise stakeholder value.
