WBHO, one of the largest South African construction companies today, is calling on interested parties to apply for its Bursary Programme. Take a few minutes and find out if you qualify to receive bursary support from a leading construction company.
The company was established in 1970 by John Wilson together with Brian Holmes. The original name was Wilson-Holmes Ltd., and after several mergers, the name changed to Wilson Bayly Homes Ltd. until it settled to WBHO Construction in 1996. Backed by a core management group of dedicated professionals, their experience encompasses major construction projects in the Middle East, several Indian Ocean islands and South Africa.
WBHO covers the full spectrum of construction activities which are categorized into three major operating divisions. These include Eathworks, Civil Engineering and Building Construction. Probuild Construction, an Australian subsidiary, operates its headquarters in Melbourne.
