Drake & Scull is the no. 1 Facilities Management (FM) provider in Southern Africa. We offer reliable, integrated and cost-effective solutions for built environments.
With 20 years of experience our human capital, ISO-accredited processes, cloud-based systems and responsive culture ensure that we meet or exceed our clients’ expectations.
For the third year running DSFM has been rated the top facilities management company in South Africa, attaining the Diamond award.
When EY (Ernst & Young) undertook the massive staff relocation into its new 23 500m2 head office in Sandton in December 2013, it implemented the largest ‘Workplace of the Future’ deployment in EY globally and unlocked the resources- and cost-saving advantages of advanced green building infrastructure. Yet for those to be fully realised, the new building’s numerous systems would have to be intensively metered and analysed – posing a more data-driven role for its FM service providers than traditionally required. With Eris Facilities Management providing integrated facilities management on-site, Drake & Scull has the mandate over office space internally.

It is hard to believe that South Africa, and the world, have had to go forward without the reassuring presence of Nelson Mandela for a whole year now. In remembering his life, his 27 years of sacrifice, his triumph of a free South Africa, it is also surely important to acknowledge, and live, by perhaps the greatest gift he gave humanity: his example. No one else can ever be Mandela, but we can each try to be like Mandela by simply biting back the next angry word; being patient when someone elderly and slow is in our path; giving up a bus seat; smiling at a passer-by instead of looking away; looking out for stray animals and taking them to the vet; not yelling at the next cold caller, who also needs to feed their family… or even just being a little kinder to the loved ones in our own lives. If we simply try to practice small acts of kindness, every day – maybe that is the best way to remember Madiba.Read More
Congratulations to Drake & Scull FM managers Ben Chauke, Basetsana Leeu, Jiten Ramprasad, Wayne Milan, Stephina Thobela and Theo Mhlongo, who were part of a group of 28 managers from Tsebo who successfully graduated the Gordon Institute of Business Science Leadership Development Programme this month.
Skills development is a priority at Tsebo, which is why we annually send managers on the GIBS programme. The latest group graduated on 18 November 2014. Dr. John Wentzel, Drake & Scull CEO, believes this kind of investment in applied managerial skills, is imperative for companies seeking to stay at the forefront.
