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 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 mankind’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. Ecolution provides a range of responsible engineering and sustainability consulting services for the property industry and their suppliers. Although relatively young, Ecolution has already made a significant contribution to the sustainability industry of South Africa with a growing network of partners in the industry.
