Welcome to Citrine

Energising homes and businesses isn’t only about turning on a few lights; it is about electrifying the future.

Citrine Construction brings energy to the homes and businesses of South Africa so our people have the power to move toward a brighter future.

A leading turnkey electrification solutions company that strives to remain on the cutting edge of electrical technology and related service offerings, we have over seven years track record and proven expertise in providing electrical works for large scale projects. We offer full-service installation, maintenance and rehabilitation of electrical infrastructure services.

Founded with a vision that basic electricity should be the privilege of all, Citrine began electrifying thousands of homes in the N2 Gateway Housing Settlement Project. Since then we have been expanding our capacity and capability to offer not only electrification services but also contract management and project skills for large housing and commercial developments through three central divisions: Citrine Electrical Solutions, Citrine Reticulation Services and Citrine Energy Management Services.

By being innovative, we constantly employ new build and installation methods, allowing us to set standards and benchmarks for our industry.

The real power behind each successful project is our fully trained team of professionals from technicians and service delivery managers to project managers, financial teams, and executives. We are further strengthened with our in-house Integrated Management System (IMS), comprising of Quality Systems, Health & Safety and Environmental Management as well as a fully integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) IT Infrastructure. We also have access to a network of external contractors who work to the high standards we have come to expect on every project.

All major projects are run from our central office in Airport Industria, Cape Town.

  • Generated close to a quarter of a billion worth of revenue
