About SDT Consulting

SDT Consulting was founded by Steve du Toit in 2011 as a consultancy specialising in all aspects of construction law.  Steve was previously an attorney, having practised in Durban for approximately 25 years, during which period he acquired extensive knowledge and experience in commercial law and the drafting of commercial agreements as well as commercial litigation, all of which qualities he has since applied to construction law. Whilst his current area of expertise lies in the interpretation and application of the JBCC and GCC agreements he also has a good working knowledge of both the FIDIC and NEC agreements.

Steve has used his knowledge and experience in the following fields of construction law:-

  • Advising developers and consultants on the setting up of projects and recommended amendments to the standard form contracts to suit the circumstances of each project
  • Assisting contractors and subcontractors in assessing contractual risks and in the formulating of extension of time and additional costs claims
  • Representing parties in mediations, adjudications and arbitrations arising from contractual disputes
  • Conducting mediations and adjudications

This knowledge and experience has proved to be invaluable in the many and diverse construction projects in which Steve has been involved, ranging from shopping centres and multistorey office and residential developments through to schools, hospitals and road and freeway infrastructure.  In the process he has built up his client base to include many of the listed and private commercial and residential property developers, national construction companies and national and provincial government departments. In addition Steve has for many years been conducting both public and inhouse training seminars in the JBCC and GCC agreements.
