Where passion meets professionalism


When Delf Consulting Engineers opened its doors for business in 2001, it did so with extensive experience in some of Africa’s most challenging engineering projects.

This track record has underpinned a steady flow of contracts from a diverse base of blue-chip clients and the company’s controlled expansion beyond South Africa’s borders.

As a specialist consulting practice, Delf concentrates on providing professional civil and structural engineering services, primarily for the industrial sector although the company has a strong track record in the commercial sector.

By focusing on the structural disciplines, we have developed particular expertise in the design and implementation of projects involving reinforced concrete and steel structures as well as structures of aluminium, timber, masonry or engineering plastics.


We are passionate about our profession, our projects and our achievements. We pride ourselves on running a lean, efficient operation that offers cost-effective specialist civil and structural engineering and design-related services for all projects. In Delf, we have built a team founded on shared values and a practice based on professional discipline and constant innovation. Our track record across South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, the Seychelles, Zambia and Angola, and further afield, speaks for itself.


The shortage of qualified and experienced people is a challenge common to most developing nations today, exacerbated by global groups recruiting outside their home and operating territories. In South Africa, the skills shortage is particularly acute in technical fields such as structural and civil engineering.

To mitigate this challenge, Delf Consulting Engineers has developed an international network strategy that leverages off economies with abundant skills in our fields. Delf India was opened in 2007 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India and the benefits of this strategy are already emerging in a ready source of experienced professionals, and considerable cross-pollination of innovative solutions to technical challenges.

With these additional skilled resources, Delf India is already opening opportunities for international business and investment, vital elements for any developing economy. It is facilitating the sharing of knowledge and skills between South Africa and India, and contributing to enlarging our pool of skills in this critical field.


To create and sustain a highly efficient, competent, professional and profitable, global civil and structural engineering consultancy focusing on our client’s requirements and providing superior, innovative and cost effective management and technical services and solutions to our client’s projects and continually striving to maximize the value of our client’s investments.
