Devru Construction has completed many projects over the years. Below are some of our Projects that we currently working on or completed.

Flagship Project

Emergency Repairs To Umhlanga Promenade

Following heavy seas where the Umhlanga Promenade suffered extensive damage, Devru Construction was involved with the construction of sea walls and the promenade from Bronze Beach to Black Rock. The sea walls were constructed in extremely difficult conditions using waterloffels to an average height of 5m. Approximately 13 000m³ of beach sand was used to backfill the walls following which we rebuilt the promenade.

The Municipality tasked various consultancies to design new culverts and protection works for Fongozi River to accommodate and alleviate this threat. Devru Construction was appointed as one of the contractors’s to carry out the work on Veni Yeni and Zimbali Roads.
This work included the following:
