Founded in 1989, the Amdec Group is a privately-owned property development and investment business recognised as South Africa’s leading developer of New Urban lifestyles. Our pioneering portfolio includes the iconic Melrose Arch mixed-use precinct, the Evergreen Lifestyles brand with its 6 retirement villages, and the growing suburb of Westbrook in Port Elizabeth. Currently under construction is The Yacht Club in Cape Town’s Waterfront, and Harbour Arch – Cape Town’s newest and largest mixed-use new urban precinct, as well as many other iconic mixed-use, residential and commercial developments.
Our buildings and public places foster enjoyment, connectivity, and a greater sense of well-being while offering energy efficiency, sustainability and convenience. The Amdec Group is active throughout South Africa, in the United Kingdom, and in the USA. We are proud of our national footprint of iconic developments and strong real estate brands. This reputation, along with our high-profile developments, is founded on the belief that there is a better way of living, working, relaxing and interacting.
Clifford Oosthuizen is a man on a mission. And it’s one he takes very seriously. As he puts it, “I’ve always been passionate about looking at a vacant plot of land and letting my imagination design buildings, developments and area layouts. So, starting a construction company seemed like the best next step to bringing those imaginings to life.”
And that’s exactly what Clifford did in 2005 when he and his wife moved to Port Elizabeth. He hasn’t looked back. After building over 550 quality homes in seven different villages in Port Elizabeth as Smallville Properties, Clifford joined the Amdec team where he is currently overseeing the construction of the city’s brand new suburb, Westbrook.
