About Us

Capabuild was established in 2001 and offers clients a personalised renovation service, opening up and brightening homes.

Founder Chris Keenan got into the industry after her long term hobby of buying and renovating homes turned into a business. “I’m very lucky to work at what I love. My own home is very important to me and so are those of our clients.”

Our company philosophy is to relate to the homes we work in. By working closely with our clients and using our understanding of their personal preferences and lifestyle, we provide the bridge that allows for effective communication with builders and subcontractors, making your renovation ideas a reality.

Our emphasis is on our comprehensive building service, but also on personal attention, project management, assistance with your choice of finishes, design pointers and steering you through every aspect of your renovation all the while keeping in mind the big picture.

We see value as a balance of price, service & quality. A good price without service and quality can become very expensive. Capabuild will implement and manage every stage of your renovation. Working with a team of professionals, we will ensure quality, style, service and satisfaction.

Chris Keenan oversees the Capabuild team. With over a decade’s experience in renovations and project management, she ensures her team of builders and artisans deliver what the client requested, on time and within budget.


We offer building and construction, kitchen designs and installations, bathroom renovations and general remodelling. With an emphasis on project management and supervision you can expect “simply less stress”.

Capabuild operates in and around Cape Town. Alterations and renovations are our forte.  The company works directly with owners as well as through architects.

“The service levels of the contractors were excellent and I was very satisfied with the end result.”
J. Bryant

“Chris Keenan managed two renovations on our house. It was an old house built in the 1920s and the projects presented many challenges. We found Chris to be an excellent project manager. She kept a tight rein on subcontractors, ensuring a high standard of work and managing the projects within time and budget.”
