Triple R Developers cc, trading as Vesta Construction, is a close corporation founded and owned by Nico Els and Chris Ruytenberg. We have been operating in Port Elizabeth since 1994, starting of with low cost housing and steadily positioning ourselves in the formal housing sector. Because of the shortage of vacant erven, we found it necessary to develop our own land and have thus far completed numerous developments.

We acquire land, have it surveyed and rezoned to the appropriate zoning, sub-divide it into erven, design and install all services and construct the units, therefore providing a complete service with an in-house sales team that does our marketing and obtains the bonds for our clients. We are members of the MBA Membership no 4263 and the NHBRC Membership no 132. We have an excellent track record with all the major suppliers and financial institutions, are liquid and able to arrange development bond finance should it be required.

Quality of our product is extremely important to us as can be verified by the amount of satisfied customers who have made our products their homes.

We strive to make your real estate dreams, a reality.
