Who You Will Be Dealing With


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

                                                Accord and Engineering Technologist Mobility Forum).


                                                Pieter is registered with the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) and is member

                                                of both the South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE)  and Institute of

Professional Engineering Technologists (IPET). Continued professional development ensures that he stays in touch with the latest trends in his industry.

The Way We Work


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.

EMOS’ reputation is built on dedication and innovative, practical solutions that speak for themselves. Scores of satisfied Clients all over Southern Africa provide proof that EMOS is truly
