The extended exposure of the firm’s staff to conditions in Northern Namibia with regard to availability of different types of road construction materials and the extensive experience acquired by them in this part of the country places the firm in pole position to execute roads/highway projects in this part of the country efficiently and reliably.
In addition, the firm’s staff have been intimately involved in the routine maintenance of the large majority of the roads in Northern Namibia over the years varied capacities. In these roles, the staff have spearheaded the maintenance operations of both the gravel roads and the bitumen surfaced roads including the drainage structures on these roads. This has led to accumulation of crucial knowledge of the existing road network in this part of Namibia with detailed information of flooding patterns of these roads during the years over which the region experienced extra-ordinary flooding conditions due to “Efundja” flood phenomenon.
