Our Operating Philosophy
Our highly-qualified team of professionals is fully committed to meeting the specific needs of our clients, by adapting holistic solutions to conventional challenges in the development of Botswana. We fully subscribe to Vision 2036
Since the early 1980’s we have successfully implemented a citizen training programme, in conjunction with Government and non government agencies. This training provided citizens with work experience and on the job training whilst attending university studying for their degree in quantity surveying. Thereafter graduates are encouraged to join the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and complete their professional assessment examinations. The RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) comprises a 12 to 33 month training programme under the guidance of an in-house training manager. Two of our Directors currently act as APC councilors for RICS assisting and implementing training programmes
To date we have assisted numerous citizen members of staff to obtain their degrees in quantity surveying. Six of our former employees left the firm and have set up, and are now principals, in their own Quantity Surveying firms.

In line with Government Citizen Empowerment polices K&D’s shares were fully transferred to Our Citizen Director Paul Bante in 2015 and now K&D is 100% Citizen Owned Firm.
