Welcome to Field and Tab

Field and Tab provides professional support services for Market Research agencies.

Situated on the Berea in Durban, Field and Tab was established 20 years ago to conduct market research, primarily for out-of-province clients who had a requirement for high quality independent research facilities in KwaZulu-Natal.

Founding and managing director Richard Masefield comments:

"We cater to the demand for a specialised, reliable and dedicated infrastructure that research companies can access for their outsourcing requirements."

Field and Tab's long and broad experience has given it insight and understanding of what the industry requires and what it's expectations are from its professional partners. As a consequence, Field and Tab's primary orientation is now directed at offering a wide range of independent support services for market research companies.

Facilities and Services

Amongst the services and facilities we provide are:

  • Respondent Discussion Rooms with Client Viewing Rooms
  • Interviewing & Respondent Recruitment Services
  • Catering for Respondents & Clients
  • Video & Audio Recording

On request, we can also assist with the following 3rd party services:

  • Translators who will sit with clients during groups
  • Video & Camera Operators for Field Work

All of these functions are run and coordinated from our Field and Tab Market Research premises in Claribel Road, Windermere, Berea, Durban. The offices provide 2 purpose-built air-conditioned viewing rooms, 2 board rooms, a reception area as well as a lounge for pre-group filtering.

Our large balcony also adds to efficiency on groups arrival. There are 8 parking bays on the property and plenty of road parking where we provide our own car guard.
