An Industry Legend: The Cape Town Building Centre

There are certain institutions that deserve respect for all they’ve gifted the industry over the years. One of these esteemed stalwarts is undoubtedly The Cape Town Building Centre, an invaluable resource for architects, interior designers, building professionals and home owners who are in the process of building and renovating.

Established in 1953 by the legendary Laurie Wale, The Cape Town Building Centre has functioned as a point of reference for architects and their clients for 64 years.

Many will be acquainted with the well-attended annual gatherings for Architects and Building Centre exhibitors in Cartwrights Corner, Adderley Street. It’s a meeting point of like-minded experts sharing and receiving valuable information about the industry.

The cornerstone of the CTBC’s success can be attributed to the popularity of the exhibition. It’s the largest of its kind in South Africa, with over 200 permanent exhibits showcasing the full spectrum of building products available for both residential and commercial projects. Shutterway is extremely proud to have a stand there, where we highlight the importance of incorporating sturdy, yet stylish security into your home or office.

This permanence gives clients the peace of mind of knowing there’s a place to visit to make informed decisions when it comes to building and renovating. Patrons are able to view up to date building products before building, as well as scoping out just-released manufacturer’s products.

Though Shutterway’s showrooms are closed over the weekend, The Cape Town Building Centre isn’t. So, if you’re on the lookout for expert security advise over the weekend, visit Shutterway’s stand at The Cape Town Building Centre!
