EMOS is based in Pretoria (or Tshwane), South Africa, is an independent Consulting
Engineering practice founded by Pieter Swanepoel, a Professional Engineering Technologist.
Our consulting services are focused on the Structural and Civil Engineering disciplines.
We not only operate in and around Pretoria/Johannesburg, but over the whole of Southern
Africa. We would even be willing to travel abroad – distance has never been a barrier
to practical, cost effective engineering solutions.
Pieter has been involved in Structural
and Civil Engineering since 1979, mainly in
private practice where he was actively
involved in most of the functions typically
encountered in a consulting engineering
practice. Prior to that he followed a career in
Architectural practices for 8 years.
A combination of his extensive experience and artistic
talents equipped him with a sensitive
flair for architectural features and requirements
with regard to aesthetic appearance
and functionality. His qualification is internationally
recognised as governed by the Sydney
Accord. This allowed him to work and gain
experience in New Zealand during
2006. (Click here to read more about the Sydney

On most of the projects EMOS works in close association with Architects who, like
all good architects, take pride in the uniqueness of their designs. The complexity
of these buildings often presents demanding structural design challenges but our
aim is always to meet the aesthetic, functional and economic considerations.
In the case of structural projects, we are generally responsible for the entire structural
system of the project, but in some cases our involvement is only required on individual
elements, which could be foundations, concrete slabs, concrete or steel beams, roofs,
columns or retaining walls. Various structural systems and/or construction materials
appropriate to project requirements, are often utilised, i.e. concrete, steel, timber,
structural glass, etc..
Optimum design is ensured by applying latest technology modelling and analysis computer
software. The internet, CAD - and other programmes, required for producing documentation,
are all fully utilised for getting the information where and when it is required.
