Consulting Engineering Sector


South Africa’s consulting engineering industry is represented by Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) which reported that fee income stabilised at R25bn annualised, at current prices as at December 2016, with the sector contributing between 0.5% and 0.6% to the country’s GDP. During the last 12 months sector employment decreased to approximately 23,000 consulting engineers employed by more than 540 firms.


Challenging Conditions


The consulting engineering sector was confronted with significant problems during the last twelve months. The major challenges included concerns regarding the setting of fees, the late payment of fees and problems associated with governance. Reduced government spending on infrastructure projects was experienced, with the National Treasury estimating that underspending on infrastructure projects reached R6bn. A deterioration in the relationship between industry associations, government departments and regulators was also problematic, especially as it could impact on international accreditation processes, and on the development of the industry in South Africa.


Report Coverage


The Consulting Engineering Sector report focuses on conditions and events that occurred in the South African industry over the last 12 months. The report profiles 40 companies ranging from major players such as AECOM Africa (Pty) Ltd which employs 900 people at its nine branches throughout Africa, to Cape Town-based SMME Msingi Projects which has three permanent employees. Also profiled is Profica Project Management (Pty) Ltd which already has offices in Kenya and Rwanda and is now opening new branches in Tanzania and Uganda in order to strengthen its East Africa operations.
