dhk is proud to announce that it has achieved a level 2 BBBEE status

dhk is proud to announce that the firm has achieved a level 2 BBBEE since working hard at improving its scorecard, especially over the last few years. While several components took some time to put in place, dhk moved from level 8 (2017, 2018 and 2019) to level 3 (2020), and more recently to level 2 (2021) in the course of the last 18 months.

Derick Henstra, executive chairman at dhk says, “We are not complacent, and remain committed both to delivering on the government’s policies for broad-based black economic empowerment and to realising a broader transformation agenda, which involves empowering people from a broad range of marginalised backgrounds.

Guy Briggs, partner at dhk explains, “Historically, most of our work has been in the private sector. However, in the last few years we have begun to operate in sectors where the government plays a substantial role in delivery, in particular education, healthcare and affordable housing. We are committed to being a part of South Africa’s ongoing transformation and development; and playing a role in delivering the government’s agenda for broad-based black economic empowerment and broader transformation”.

Established in 1998, dhk is one of the largest design firms in Africa and has an established reputation as a design-driven multidisciplinary studio with projects in South Africa and abroad. The firm is responsible for landmark buildings such as the Portside Tower in Cape Town’s CBD, Waterway House at the V&A Waterfront, Melrose Arch Piazza in Sandton and more recently, Capitec Bank’s headquarters in Stellenbosch.
