Who we are
Brothers Michiel and Regardt Scharrighuisen established Giflo as a high quality property development company focussed on greenfield and joint venture developments. The property sector can be a challenging space for the uninitiated, but Giflo has an exemplary track record in delivering on its established promise of developmental excellence.
Giflo are experts in developing commercial and medical property. This means businesses needing office space to rent are able to positively engage with the company about their specific requirements, secure in the knowledge their property goals will be more than adequately achieved in partnership with Giflo.
A particularly interesting specialist area in which Giflo excels is the development of medical facilities such as day hospitals, medical centres, clinics and similar purpose-created medical services spaces. The Giflo Medical division was formed in 2016 when the company was joined by experts Pieter Knoesen and Ivan Makkink, who are responsible for all medical facilities developed and managed by Giflo.
Developer Ivan and architect Pieter have more than 20 years’ combined experience in the medical facilities industry. They have completed many related developments, including step down and dialysis facilities, as well as day hospitals and other types of specialist medical centres across the country.
The Giflo Medical team has an entrenched understanding of this complex development business and is completely at ease with creating development plans capable of delivering over the long term on the expectations of all parties involved. Due to the many details to keep in mind with medical developments, the Giflo Medical team has created appropriate process flow methodologies that are specifically geared towards the efficient establishment and management of effective facilities. If you are looking for a partner to assist you with the development of a medical facility, Giflo Medical is ideally positioned to enable synergies in this specialist arena that will lead to the healthiest possible outcome. Its proven track record attests to its ability to purpose-develop medical facilities offering not only high quality spaces, but that also delivers on the bottom line over time.
Strength in partnerships
Giflo is not a standalone company that works in isolation. In fact, its key strength is Giflo’s ability to enable strong, long-lasting partnerships between itself and its reliable associates. The company co-develops, co-owns and seeks out the best partners to work alongside, thereby ensuring everybody benefits from the significant synergies inherent in partnerships, for which the total is more than the sum of its constituent parts. Clients are viewed as partners who are important contributors to the success of development projects. Giflo aligns itself with the best industry professionals at the forefront of innovation to create developments of the highest quality.
Moral authority comes from following universal and timeless principles such as honesty, integrity and respect.
A pursuit of excellence
Giflo prizes innovation and does not compromise on establishing anything other than high-quality, sustainable, future-proof developments. The company’s approach ensures low maintenance, highly functional, well-designed developments. The company creates buildings with purpose, featuring a low carbon footprint in line with the requirements of the Green Building Council of South Africa.
Giflo’s honest and transparent relationships with clients and tenants are valuable attributes. Strength in partnerships is a core value that Giflo holds in high esteem. This dependable approach naturally appeals to new clients. Continuous interaction, constant availability and uncompromising service excellence differentiates our company.
“Everyone can try their hand at making property successful but only a handful will prevail. Play your strengths, find your differentiator and above all maintain integrity for that is what your peers and competition will admire.”
