15 Years Strong

During the month of March 2005 three relatively young individuals decided to set up a construction company to service their property development plans – calling the company 3 Oaks Property Development.


Using the name as a play on the three founders and an oak tree to signify strength – the above logo was developed.

As the property market crashed in 2007, the two remaining founders decided to drop the “Property Development” part and move into construction working for clients. Many an architect and friend took a risk on 3 Oaks at the beginning but our determined desire to provide the best possible product we could, soon allowed us to grow into new markets consistently doubling our business year on year from 2007 to today.

Along the way we merged with Washirika Design Build in 2015 and became Washirika 3 Oaks, further on in 2017 we acquired Gocreate Project Management, based in Cape Town, and set up W3O Cape under the W3O banner.

We now service multinational companies around the country from retail fit-outs to building the country’s power stations – and that is why we are celebrating “15 Years Strong”.

W3O would like to thank every professional who has given us an opportunity to work on a project, every client who allowed us to work for them, every subcontractor who have over the years have become part of the W3O family and most importantly to our staff who have stuck it out through thick and thin living the dream that as long as you do the best you can you have done W3O proud.
