Why we're here
In 2010, director André Harms spent 14 months in Antarctica. He worked for the South African National Antarctic Programme as the team leader and mechanical engineer. It was there that André came face-to-face with the critical situation our planet is facing. Following his returning in 2011, he combined his new found knowledge, passion for the environment and engineering background to start Ecolution Consulting.

Our SANS 10499-XA service uses computer modelling instead of the strict prescriptive route to comply with the SANS 10400-XA standard. This allows for greater design freedom and savings for your client.
