Spec. Qual. Exam. (Rand)

Presumed to be of Dutch extractions since he wrote the qualifying examination of the Witwatersrand. It would seems that Piet BREEDVELD was in practice with a Van GEMERT, also doing high-rise buildings in the JHB CBD in 1950s. The SAAR, SEPTEMBER 1947, p.263 lists them as ‘Gemert & Breedveld’ in 1947 (With BURG, LODGE and BURG and BOSMAN and VERHOEF) responsible for the Girls Hostel at the Vereeniging High School (see Wiredspace).

In 1959 he is recorded as being a practitioner at Maritime House, Johannesburg, where he is still recorded in 1969.
