About Us

The Liviero Group is South Africa’s largest privately black owned multidisciplinary construction Group. With headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa and several regional offices throughout the country, the Group is firmly positioned to provide solid support to its clients and operations throughout South Africa. 

Imp. Giosue Liviero was founded in 1955 by the late Giosue Liviero in a small town outside Venice, Italy called Mirano. His immigration to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe in 1967 resulted in the formation of Giosue Liviero Builders (Pvt) Ltd. In 1983, the Liviero family relocated to Durban, South Africa where G Liviero Building (Pty) Ltd was established.  Giosue’s son, Luca Liviero joined the family  business in 1989 and changed its name to G Liviero & Son Building (Pty) Ltd. From these humble beginnings, G Liviero & Son has evolved into the Liviero Group, a  diversified  multi-disciplinary  construction  Group,  generating  an  annual turnover in excess of over R2 billion and currently employing around 2600 people. 

October 2015 marked a historical turning point in the life of the Liviero Group. The Masimong Group acquired a controlling stake in the Group. 

The Liviero Group, through its specialised operating companies of Liviero Building, Liviero Civils, Liviero Mining, Liviero Drill & Blast and Liviero Plant, covers the full spectrum of construction services including Civil Engineering, Roads and Earthworks, Building, Property Development, Mining Infrastructure, Open Cast Mining and Yellow Metal Plant Hire. This enables the Group to provide a “one stop” construction solution to its clients. 

With a highly experienced Directorate and dynamic teams of managers, complimented by a dedicated group workforce,  Liviero strives for excellence, delivering quality products on time and within the required budget. 

The operating companies are substantially backed by the Groups’ impressive array of modern plant and equipment with a replacement value in excess of R1.5 billion. The Groups’ philosophy has always been that of having the right tools for the job and thereby ensuring the greatest amount of efficiency both for the respective divisions and clients alike.
