THE BERKELEY GROUP DIFFERENCE
Berkeley Group delivers more of what matters when you build a new home in the Western Cape; providing affordable, high quality and spacious homes that stand out from other builders.
Contemporary elegance is no longer out of reach for the budget-conscious.
HELP IS ALWAYS AT HAND
Our team of dedicated Home Building and Design Consultants have extensive experience in the South African marketplace. Listening to your every requirement, our team takes great pride in delivering an exceptional standard of service that is individually tailored to meet your unique requirements.
ENGINEERED EXCELLENCE, INSIDE AND OUT
Constantly seeking new ways to improve our building process, the team at Berkeley Group employ innovative and sustainable construction methods that provide you with both value-for-money and flexibility, whilst minimizing our impact on the environment. By undertaking the majority of construction directly on site, we ensure that your new home is built to its individual specifications.
Further, as our construction methods enable larger unsupported room spans, you have greater freedom when designing your dream home meaning you can truly let your imagination run free.
A SOLID FOUNDATION
As the old adage says, a home is only as solid as its foundations. At Berkeley Group, we ensure that all lower and upper floors of our quality and award-winning homes are built using the highest specification poured concrete slabs. On the ground, all of our homes incorporate a solid concrete slab with engineered footings to all living areas of the home, whilst our innovative second-storey construction method consists of a concrete slab supported by a framed cavity, culminating in an incredible 429mm of total floor thickness.
PEACE OF MIND
It is no secret that many multi-storey homes feature a high degree of unwanted noise, and our clients are constantly seeking assurance that our innovative methods will keep distracting noise levels to a minimum. Unlike many of our competitors, we provide our clients with peace of mind as our concrete flooring construction method delivers superior sound insulation, due to the level of mass required to reduce the transmission of both airborne and impact sounds between the upper and lower storeys.
SOUTH AFRICAN MADE AND OWNED
Berkeley Group is the leading builder and developer of multi storey homes in the Western Cape, as well as one of the most respected building companies that is solely owned and operated in South Africa. We strive to ensure that our building products are locally sourced from genuine, high quality SABS materials, whether that is from the bricks used to build your new home, to the tiles and choice of appliances.
All the cabinetry in your new Berkeley Group home, including those in your new kitchen, laundry, and en-suite, are built to the highest South African standards by leading cabinet makers.
We here at Berkeley Group do not utilise flat pack kitchens imported from overseas, which allows you to fully customise your kitchen design while still allowing for the highest quality possible.
LEAVING A LEGACY FOR GENERATIONS TO COME
Today, we all have a role to play in ensuring that we minimise our impact on the environment, and leave a long-standing and secure legacy for generations.
With our lower floors featuring clay bricks to both the internal and external walls, our timber framed or light steel frame upper floors are finished externally with our unique EIFS wall system. Extensively used throughout the world for over half a decade, EIFS acrylic rendered thermal panels are gaining in popularity, primarily due to their improved energy conservation when compared to standard brick or timber construction. For our valuable clients, this means that they can rest assured that their new home not only meets the mandatory 6 star energy rating, but exceeds it.
What’s more, with faster construction times, and a range of stylish colours and finishes available, our EIFS wall system will ensure that your new home will be a true reflection of your personality – and will stand the test of time for years to come.
