Mwanamambo Design and Construction Projects – Mwanamambo DCP – is a wholly Zimbabwean-owned company that was inaugurated in December 2017. Their vision was to create a new model for the way in which projects are planned, implemented, and completed from the initial concept right through to the finished product. Mwanamambo offers a full turn-key service from beginning to end dealing with every facet of the project under one roof. The model means that there’s a carefully controlled coordination of all the different aspects of a project so progress is perfectly synchronised – passing the savings in time and budget on to the client.
The model employed by Mwanamambo DCP saves 10-15% of overall project costs per project. At the same time, the client can avoid the hassles of dealing with different game players who sometimes shift the responsibility to others for budget overruns or time scheduling delays. It means clients only have one company to deal with rather than many different organisations. In addition, Mwanamambo has the capacity to deal with most details of a project in-house.
Mwanamambo DCP was founded by Brighton Ngarava, Kudzai Nhau, and Farai Mushove with Simba Magwenzi handling all the design aspects of the company. Despite the fact that they’re a relatively young company together the principals have over 30 years of collective experience in innovative methods of planning, construction, maintenance, and renovation. Mwanamambo DCP’s service focus and capabilities include (but are not limited to):

At ZTA they designed and manufactured the custom-made reception desk, the unique boardroom table, workstations, and other furniture, and created a whole new, updated look. For the legal practice Masiya-Sheshe and Associates, they not only designed their offices and the furniture used they also created a corporate identity by creating a brand, managing various aspects of the brand strategy beginning from the creation of a corporate logo, corporate profiles, website, and social media management right up to branded stationery, at the handing over of the project upon completion the clients were ready to move in and start the business.
Mwanamambo DCP’s unique operational model is focused on the fact that has a vast range and number of inhouse
specialists, a system of partner companies, and a network of local artisans and skilled workers to draw from. This enables them to deal with every aspect of the design and production process under one roof and to keep control of a number of diverse disciplines ensuring the smooth and efficient completion of each and every project.
