National property developer FWJK has been awarded the top honour for business excellence in property development. The coveted PMR.Africa Diamond Arrow Award recognizes FWJK’s achievement in establishing its place as the country’s most innovative real estate developer.

Rhys Rocke, regional director of FWJK Developments, attended the award ceremony in Sandton and received the award on behalf of the firm. Rocke said, “The drive to innovate, add value and ensure client satisfaction are at the core of the firm’s culture. The FWJK Co-Development at Cost methodology which allows investors and end-users to participate in the profit as co-developers has proved irresistible to the South African market. Our competitiveness can be attributed to the emphasis we place on design efficiency in our own developments and on the elimination of wasteful design elements so often evident in property development.”

FWJK also collected the Golden Arrow Award for its architectural division and the Silver Arrow Award for its quantity surveying division.

Rocke added that the combination of maintaining architectural, quantity surveying and project management services within the firm had enabled turnaround times to be measured in weeks and not months.

“Our competitive edge results from the ability to produce financially viable development projects without the need for extensive and time consuming revisions to the scheme.”
