Case Study

How BEE123 partnered with TSK Bartlett to develop strategic benchmarks and enhance compliance

A BEE123 partnership that resulted in Metair achieving B-BBEE Level 1, in a period of 3 years


TSK – Bartlett (Pty) Ltd brings more than 20 years of experience to the building industry. The company prides itself on its forward-thinking operations, developing a new generation of building contractors to the South African market.

The company is committed to driving transformation. However, there were no strategically defined B-BBEE targets, which made it difficult to follow a systemized transformation programme.

The business also lacked a system for efficiently and securely storing supporting documentation.

Developing a more robust B-BBEE strategy, supported by clear operating procedures, BEE123 produced tangible transformation enhancement.


  1. More efficient: The verification process previously took months, involving a large amount of manual input and uncertainty. Post-implementation of BEE123’s software,  the whole verification process is finalised in a few weeks.
  2. Clearer guidance: BEE123 consultants provide guidance, ensuring the most suitable verification methodologies are followed.


The organisation was able to enhance its Scorecard by implementing two special BEE123 programmes.

  1. Skills123 – which contributed to the priority Skills Development component of the Scorecard.
  2. SED123 – which provided a structured, impactful contribution to the Socio-Economic Development element of the Scorecard.


The organisation introduced meaningful learnership programmes that helped expand the capacity of individuals to perform in leadership roles within organisations.

BEE123’s strategic input has led to more efficient spending toward reaching transformation goals.


The programme earned B-BBEE points and produced tangible results by also including the upskilling of employees. A great success story and an example of the kind of  impact these programmes have is when a TSK – Bartlett (Pty) Ltd foreman received formal training and support, through this programme. This foreman now runs his own TSK-Bartlett (Pty) Ltd sites knowledgeably and with as much capability and confidence as more experienced foremen in the construction industry.
