The world of building and construction is a tough one to break into, but one entrepreneur in Botswana is doing just that. Laurettah Sibanda, founder of Atlantis Construction Group and Developments (Pty) Ltd, is building a reputation for quality project delivery and a great approach to service.
What does your company do?
Atlantis Construction Group & Developments is a full service building contracting company offering services from architecture, residential and commercial building and construction, renovations and maintenance. In addition to general construction, the company is also involved in real estate development with a particular focus on residential developments.
What inspired you to start your company?
The idea to start the company came about while I was working as a candidate attorney and needed to supplement my income. I had played around with some business ideas but I couldn't find anything that interested me enough to pursue. One day my cousin who is a self employed building contractor came by to visit and was discussing how there was a great demand for building contractors in town and I saw this as an opportunity to make extra money.
