By this time they had designed the Italianate-styled building for the Netherlands Bank (1927) which must have helped establish the firm's reputation. They carried out a number of buildings for the Port Elizabeth motor industry between 1927 and 1930, including both the Ford Factory and the General Motors Factory (1928).
