Mine operators need partners they can rely on, whether for roads, rail, aerodromes, housing, water, environmental services or any other engineering and mining related services. We have extensive experience throughout Africa on surface infrastructure, including haul roads, service roads, heavy pavements and airport facilities. Included in our specialist services are risk management and safety assessments, advice on legislative compliance and project management.
For many years we have provided comprehensive professional expertise throughout the full cycle of small to large mining infrastructure projects. We focus on the delivery of innovative, cost-effective solutions that are appropriate and sustainable. Our clients range from small mining operators to international firms mining coal, iron ore, manganese, and platinum.
Our team has undertaken the basic and detailed design of various ash dam facilities (ADF’s), as well as pollution control dam (PCD) complexes and a combination of pollution and clean water dam complexes for several power stations. The new / extended ash dam facilities and associated infrastructure are needed to store the ash (either wet or dry) from the coal combustion process, for the life of the power station.
Our geotechnical professionals are able to offer services to the mining industry in terms of geological mapping, rock and cut face stability assessments, quarry layout design, and the classification of waste materials. Our designers are experienced in the site investigation, construction material sourcing and feasibility through to detailed design of ash dam facilities and pollution control dams (PCD’s), using both natural materials and geosynthetic liners. Our clients include small scale miners, and quarry operators to large international mining houses.
Municipal engineering services and infrastructure are the backbone of any economy. For many years we have provided comprehensive professional expertise throughout the full cycle of small to large infrastructure projects. We focus on the delivery of innovative, cost-effective solutions that are appropriate and sustainable. Our clients include large metropolitan authorities, district municipalities, utility companies, private investors and small community organisations.
By adopting a tiered, risk‐based approach, we can establish if contamination has occurred and whether the contamination presents a significant risk of harm. The assessment of contaminated land is required to protect human health and the environment. Contaminated land assessments comprise a Phase 1 desktop, site walkover and limited site investigation, followed by a Phase 2 detailed invasive investigation for site characterisation. These inform the Phase 3 report which provides an evaluation of remediation.
We have extensive experience in integrated water resource management and the application of resource direct measures and source direct controls to ensure the protection of water resources and the use thereof for social and economic development.
