History

The origin and growth of De Vries De Wet & Krouwkam Inc. lies in the philosophy that the interests of clients can be served better by the availability of a variety of specialist services in one firm. It was this philosophy that led to the amalgamation of two firms, namely De Vries & Krouwkam (established in 1984) and De Wet & Stofberg (established in 1993), on 1 September 1999.

The offices of De Vries De Wet & Krouwkam Inc. are situated at 25 Stockenström Street, Worcester’s well-known ‘Old Volkskas Building’, which was designed by the famous architect, W.O. Meyer.

The design of the building was quite fittingly based on that of the court buildings of Chandingarh, India. Hans Frans, in his work ‘Three Centuries of South African Art’, described this landmark as a ‘brutal use of concrete-in-the-raw which unashamedly puts its trust in the aesthetic effect of the unadored material and in purely functional and structural forms reflecting the interior’.


The office building serves as a modern reflection of the standards of De Vries De Wet & Krouwkam Inc.’s clients.
