...Jadecon forges ahead despite crises, bags Megafest awards
At a time of severe crises characterised by shortages of cement, arguably the most critical component in civil engineering work, Jadecon Construction and Engineering has credited its smooth relationship with suppliers and clients for its virtually unshaken capacity to deliver.
“We are glad we are still here, moulding bricks and able to deliver any of the products and services we offer. The people are sustaining us. We cannot, however, say we are not at all affected by the economic problems in the country because like everybody else, we are subject to the same conditions,” said Jadecon Construction and Engineering director, Stanley Kondongwe.
He was speaking to TellZim News in the wake of the company’s winning of two accolades at the 2018 Megafest Business Awards held at Great Zimbabwe Hotel recently.
The first award went to Kondongwe himself who was recognised as the Masvingo Industrialist of the Year 2018 while the company as a whole was given the Company Excellency of the Year trophy in recognition of its quality products and services among many other considerations.
The company’s name has grown a provider of quality multi-purpose bricks, quarry and other building materials.
Jadecon Construction and Engineering also operates a home ownership scheme through which clients can have their houses fully built and they then pay over an extended period of time.
Onsite quantity surveying also ensures that there is convenience for clients who require one-stop services on their way to full home ownership.
Besides construction of houses, the company has also done impressive work for schools and institutions of higher learning, building magnificent security walls and other large scale commercial and industrial structures.
Jadecon Engineering, as one of the largest employers in Masvingo, has since spread its wings to the Midlands province where it has undertaken several housing projects for organisations and individuals.
