Our Services

To optimize cost, quality, and efficiency, the Bothma Construction Management Methodology was developed to ensure projects of all sizes meet our rigorous standards. From ensuring realistic schedules are developed and met, to incorporating Sustainable Building and safety performance across the board.

CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

Construction management is the discipline of organizing and managing resources to complete projects within the defined scope, quality, time and cost constraints established by our Team Bothma Construction believes that the team should communicate openly and develop mutual trust as the foundation for all projects.
We accommodate changes to the project, whether planned or unforeseen, at a minimum cost. We believe in the Construction Management approach because it optimizes cost, quality and schedule efficiency.

QUALITY MANAGEMENT

From small jobs to big, Bothma Construction brings the same quality and high standards to the table. The Company’s recent performance developing and maintaining cost / budget estimates has been outstanding. As a result of our attention to detail and ongoing demand for perfection, 85% of our annual work comes from repeat business.
Ultimately, the goal is to satisfy the Owner’s requirements within a pre-established budget and finish schedule. We work with pre-qualified sub-trades from a list of capable, proven trades to ensure quality on all jobs. Senior management is involved in every project and the company’s goal is client satisfaction. These standards helped us achieve a reputation for the highest quality with special attention to detail.

VALUE ENGINEERING

Bothma Construction is very proactive in controlling costs. Throughout the pre-construction and
construction phases, the Company actively seeks areas to save money without compromising quality,
and provides the Owner with strategies and options for proper decision-making. Value engineering
counts heavily on past experience, trade participation and cost management requirements. From our
experience we can provide alternate construction methods to effectively save time and costs; this
results in a better way and a more effective product.
Bothma Construction have professional and certified engineers. Our personnel have had no loss time
accidents over the years. Bothma Construction believes in “safety first.” In that manner, we maintain
that a clean job is a safe job. Providing a safe environment for the workers is directly reflected in the
quality of work performed.

Industry-Leading Capabilities


Bothma’s dam maintenance division provides expert dam construction,
rehabilitation, and replacement services for dam mechanical equipment of all
sizes. As one of the early foundations of the company, dam maintenance is
deeply entrenched in Bothma’s history and future.
A particular emphasis in this division is gate construction work, including radial,
slide, crest, miter, and drum gates. In 2016 alone, Bothma was awarded six dam
gate rehabilitation or replacement projects. This project exposure ensures that
our team was able to acquire deep knowledge and experienced. The inner
workings of a dam are complex, but our expert crews are able to draw on years of
similar projects and experience to solve even the most complicated and technical
problems.
