Our Storyso far...

Flintstone Engineering, after the “flintstones” which the early men used to lit fire to symbolize the advancement of humanity through innovation and technology.

as well as manpower capacity. Today, the company is able to establish itself as one of the leading real-estate & construction firms in Ethiopia.
Our Success factors
Many are curious about how we are able to deliver on our contracts given the difficult nature of the domestic construction industry and the volatility of the market. Three key success factors enable us to keep our promise
Research and insightful value engineering enable us to understand what the customer needs and come up with a design fit for purpose. No more, no less. Our designers refrain from excess in flamboyance, focus
on function and streamline home elements to constructability and cost-effectiveness.
Long Sighted Marketing
In marketing, we aim to attain zero buyers’ remorse. A properly informed buyer, by a salesperson who has a deep understanding of the customer needs, rarely regrets the decision to buy. At Flintstone, buyers
are given sufficient time to think about our offers and compare options available in the market.
By blocking 10% of the sale price in their bank account, they can reserve their choice home and survey other options, without committing any money at all. In the rare cases a buyer changes her/his mind, the blocked
amount is released immediately. Sales performance is measured in a way that encourages agents to develop lasting customer relationships.
Flintstone sales agents are paid not only to sell contracts but also to ensure homes are delivered. Representing their customers, our sales agents are empowered to file complaints to top management and enforce positive
responses by site management with customer payment used as leverage.
Flintstone homes also help buyers establish homeowners’ association by providing legal counsel, office work support and space for assembly. We believe an organized homeowners’ community will ensure customer satisfaction
and avoid conflicting interests degenerating into costly disputes. The Twin crossings Homeowners’ Association, established in July 2011, is a proud example.
Hence, the first of a series of future Flintstone Homes, Twin Crossings (named after the striking twin-deck bridge nearby) was launched by Flintstone Engineering in association with Century 21, grade one construction
firm with strong foreign and local investment footing.
