About Us

SANMAR is a distinguished family enterprise, steeped in a legacy of craftsmanship and dedication. Established in 1991 by David Ould, a seasoned Professional Quantity Surveyor, the company’s roots were firmly planted in a vision of excellence. Drawing from his expertise and passion for construction, David embarked on a journey to redefine standards in the industry.

The legacy flourished when in 1998, David’s son, Mark Ould, graduated with a diploma in Quantity Surveying and Building, bringing fresh perspective and ingenuity to the fold. The synergy between father and son became evident as they joined forces in 1999, united by a shared commitment to surpassing client expectations

In 2004, Kerry Ould, David’s daughter-in-law, stepped into the realm of SANMAR, infusing the company with her  organisational prowess and managerial acumen as the general office manager. Her arrival heralded a new era of streamlined operations and enhanced customer experiences.

Continuing the tradition of family involvement, Stefan Christie, David’s son-in-law, entered the fray in 2008 as a projects manager, contributing his expertise and strategic vision to propel SANMAR towards greater heights of success.

Complementing the familial core are stalwarts of the team like Jackson Tyose, the esteemed supervisor, and a cadre of seasoned foremen and proficient painting teams. Their unwavering dedication and collective expertise have been pivotal in steering SANMAR’s trajectory over the past three decades.

Throughout its illustrious journey, SANMAR has remained a cornerstone of the construction landscape in Cape Town, catering to the diverse needs of residential, commercial, industrial, and retail sectors with unwavering commitment. A testament to its enduring values of professionalism, quality, and integrity, the company stands as a beacon of excellence in the industry.
