About Regardt Kenny

After travelling for a couple of years, I worked extensively in the service industry whilst acquiring the skills necessary for my work. This gave me a strong focus on meeting the needs of my clients.
I started my practical work career in the set building industry of Cape Town.
It taught me valuable skills in carpentry, metal work and design.
This also gave me the ability and confidence to “think on my feet”.

During this time I realized that we need to tread lighter on our planet. This led me to study permaculture and natural building, which became the backbone of the company.

I moved to Kommetjie with my family in January of 2014 to start Ecowerks and have been doing projects in the area ever since.
