F&J General Engineers came into existence ten years ago, started by partners Joe Ferreira and Fred Bredenhand. Joe Ferreira, brought with him thirty five years experience in all facets of steelwork for the construction industry. Joe started Mediterranean Engineering in 1967 servicing numerous construction companies and left the company's mark on many of Cape Town's major construction projects. Joe is responsible for the day to day running of business,  including tendering and production of workshop drawings often having to burn the midnight oil to keep pace with the workload. Fred is in charge of production and insures that production quality is always up to the standard expected by ourselves and our clients.

This combined approach to workshop production is firstly to ensure that the client will be pleased with the product and that the site is not being held up in the process. Our workshop is very well equipped, and our staff are well qualified and trained to to meet the speed and quality of workmanship expected of them.

Our core business is structural and architectural steel fabrication comprising, steel roof structures, steel portal buildings, staircases, fire escapes, spiral staircases, balustrades in mild steel and stainless steel, mezz floors, pergolas, canopies, sun screens, shop front supports, steel balconies, motorised gates, sliding gates & doors and numerous other steel products that goes into a construction project.

We welcome and appreciate any and all enquiries from contractors big and small whether it be in the form of bills of quantities, drawings, or merely a hand sketch. Prospective clients who do not have access to architectural services can be assured of our assistance should they face problems with feasibility and/or design of their proposed project.
