QUAD Africa Consulting are Electrical Engineers serving South Africa.
The practice employs twenty technical staff, of who thirteen are Project Engineers or Directors with extensive experience in all aspects of Electrical Engineering, from project inception through to hand-over and ongoing support.

A consistently high technical standard and design uniformity is achieved by close collaboration between practices, and the application of similar design guidelines in all offices. These technical design guidelines are living documents subject to ongoing review, and enhancement to ensure they meet or exceed current best practice.
All projects are undertaken under the direct and visible control of a Director. The practice prides itself that all Directors are first and foremost Electrical Engineers who are intimately involved with all aspects of their projects.

A review of the professional careers of the key personnel shows diverse experience, across a number of the major South African Consulting Engineering practices. The combined experience of the Directors is drawn on in an ongoing process of benchmarking, where every aspect of the design process is evaluated, to ensure the highest professional standards are maintained.

Comparison of our service with that offered by the rest of the industry is actively encouraged, in the interest of continual enhancement of the service offered by the practice. This in turn leads to refinement of the service offered by the industry to the benefit of all.
