Ecolution Consulting was established by André Harms in 2011 in response to the need for market transformation towards more sustainable and responsible design, construction, operation and maintenance in the built environment.
André had spent over a year in Antarctica from 2010 to 2011 working for SANAP at the South African Antarctic base as the team leader and head engineer. It was there that his passion for the environment was brought face to face with the critical situation we are facing on our planet. Living for 14 months in complete isolation with his small team, he became acutely aware of humankind’s reliance on energy, as well as our propensity to produce waste. He returned to South Africa and founded Ecolution as the first step in the right direction.
