After 7 years of being in the building industry , in July 2015 he founded LegenDraw PTY (LTD).The Company was created with a vision to minimise the Revit Draughting need in the Building Industry. LegenDraw is a Draughting agency that offers all building Draughting services for all types of Industry. We offer Draughting , training and BIM solutions. We also believe in giving back to the youth and are training and placing a number of Draughtspersons across the MEP Industry specifically.

We pride ourselves in having already further trained and employed former African Academy (2013) students Mduduzi Dlamini , Precious Gondwe and Gift Chiuye are all LegenDraw employees who continue to spread their REVIT MEP/Autocad knowledge within the Building Industry. Students who have just completed their MultiDisciplinary drawing office practice(MDDOP) from institutions like African Academy are given further training and work experience so they can be employable.

The need for companies to use Revit MEP is growing quickly while the skills required become less. Legendraw was created to fill that gap for clients that are starting up and for established clients who may be in need of urgent professional Revit MEP services.

The African Academy was established in 1994 to address the critical need for well-trained and skilled Draughtspersons, and to contribute towards reducing unemployment in South Africa. The African Academy is recognized as one of Africa’s leading Draughting Education & Training Institutions. The African Academy has proven its worth by achieving an above 80% pass rate and an above 80% placement of graduates in employment. Industry attests to the high calibre of graduate that the African Academy produces.
