MINING & CONSTRUCTION SURVEY SPECIALISTS

Survey Management from inception to completion is what we do. We initiate all projects by determining our clients’ needs, requirements and aspirations and we assist them to bring their vision to life. We use our expertise to consult to our clients, as a Team Lead for Surveying – providing knowledge on Survey layouts, Surface Infrastructure, and audit checks for Survey-related projects.


We draft complete mine plans and layouts, measure underground face advances, direction and excavations and assist with shaft sinking and equipping. We also play an integral part in training junior Surveyors, who we hope can make a positive impact as the future Surveyors on key projects.

With many years’ experience in the industry, we bring in-depth knowledge and expertise to the table, working closely with all relevant stakeholders to execute a successful project. We have a proven track record and provide professional advice and service excellence to ensure our clients projects are executed beyond satisfaction, within budget and safely.
