The Republic of South Africa (RSA) is located at the southern tip of Africa. The country’s first multi-racial elections were held in 1994 and brought an end to apartheid. The government was then faced with addressing imbalances created by apartheid including the provision of quality housing, education, and health care.

South Africa has a large agricultural sector with well-developed financial, legal, communications, energy, and transport sectors. Its modern infrastructure supports an efficient distribution of goods to major urban centres throughout the region.

Aurecon has 26 offices throughout South Africa, with its first office having opened in Tshwane in the early 1950s. These also include subsidiary companies such as Geostrada Engineering Materials Laboratory and the Aspirata Microbiological Chemical Laboratory.

Aurecon’s involvement in projects in South Africa ranges from the provision of basic services in rural areas, to the design of multi-modal transportation projects in metropolitan areas. Aurecon ensures the involvement of local engineers through our local offices. The result is effective knowledge and technology sharing and networking. In this way the group ensures local knowledge is combined with Aurecon’s international expertise.

The group also offers bursaries and support for further studies at universities and other institutions of higher learning. By facilitating enhanced career development and opportunities, Aurecon contributes to efforts to assist those who have been historically disadvantaged. In addition, a large number of in-service training opportunities are also offered through ‘learnerships’ and a comprehensive mentorship programme.

Projects have included the award winning Department of International Relations and Cooperation Head office and Berg Water Project, the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project, and the Peter Mokaba Sporting Complex.  

Aurecon is committed to the implementation of Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) within its South African operations and has been verified as a Level 2 Contributor to BBBEE.

With a procurement recognition level of 125 per cent, clients may claim any Aurecon fees incurred as BBBEE spend at the same level towards their own BBBEE certification. Furthermore, the group has been assessed as a Value Adding Vendor, which means that the fees claimed as BBBEE spend can further be enhanced by a factor of 1.25.

Aurecon has been named one of South Africa’s top empowered companies. Learn more about Aurecon’s progress and achievements with regard to transformation.
