Whilst creating these detailed designs, you will select the components and materials needed to ensure the result meets technical, financial, and contractual requirements and therefore - commercial standards. You must be a BoQ master, proud of your proven ability to achieve 100% on point, in fact, developing SANS 2100 BOQs from your designs is child's play for you.

    We are looking for (mostly) a desk jockey, someone who is adaptive to new tech and thoroughly enjoys using big data and systems (ideally Civil 3D, AutoCAD, and Prokon) to create designs that are intuitive to the needs of the project. It goes without saying that you are well versed in road, pile, concrete and equipment foundation, and building designs.

    If you have technical expertise in grading and protection studies – then you are certainly the person we are looking for.

The ideal candidate would champion values such as responsibility, integrity, and tenacity in each and every one of their actions. When individuals that possess these qualities are thrown together, the result is a team that consistently produces high-quality services.
