  • traffic impact studies and assessments
  • assessments and designs of intersections/junctions
  • parking design
  • safety assessment

* Major hydraulic systems designs are conducted by affiliated specialists.

Water and Sanitation

Our continent has unique and often complex sanitation challenges that require the design of innovative solutions. Therefore, Prana Consulting continuously conducts research into alternative / unconventional technologies which can be manufactured locally.

Water and Sewer

Our services include investigation, planning, designs, and construction management of water and sewer networks in both urban and rural settings. Services include the design of bulk, reticulation as well as audits and assessment management of existing infrastructure.

Water and Waste Water Treatment

We provide comprehensive industrial, municipal and domestic water solutions from conceptual/feasibility stage to execution, commissioning and handover, as well as training on both existing and new systems. The services also include water treatment life cycle management (PLCM) and optimization solutions on existing plant systems.

Our team has experience in the design and operation of:

  • new and existing plants
  • the upgrade of aging treatment infrastructure to applicable standards
  • operation of new and existing plants to ensure that water production quality is achieved and conforms to applicable legislation.

Water Extraction

Prana Consulting is affiliated with a company that holds a patent for Sand Water Extraction (SWE) technology, which efficiently extracts good quality water out of the sand aquifers in riverbeds irrespective of the river’s water levels.

The system offers the opportunity to harness untapped water resources in river aquifers. The system extracts water in times of drought at high and efficient rates, while addressing challenges with common conventional water extraction methods.

Geotechnical Engineering

Our services include geotechnical investigation for dolomitic and non-dolomitic conditions for the development of:

  • structures
  • bridges
  • housing developments
  • landfill designs, and
  • civil and electrical infrastructure projects

The investigations provide insight into subsurface conditions and their potential impact on a proposed project and also provides foundation recommendations.

The outcome of the investigation highlights conditions that could have an adverse impact on proposed projects which is a crucial risk management tool for clients.

Engineering Geology

We offer a variety of geological services from grassroots exploration to bankable stage. The processes include:

  • due diligence and feasibility studies
  • geological drilling, drill site management and supervision

The explorations are followed by a geological model, mineral resource estimation and professional report used to interpret the trend, extend and size of the ore-body of interest respectively

We also compile competent persons reports (CPR) in the interest of investors and stock exhanges. We focus on aggregate, mining coal, platinum and gold experience.

Occupational Health and Safety

Services offered include:

  • the preparation and enforcement of policies to establish a culture of health and safety in the workplace and on site
  • evaluating practices and formulating company policies and procedures
  • preparation of method statements and risk assessments
  • risk management, planning and identification
  • planned task observations
  • records and documentation
  • conducting training and toolbox talks
  • adherence to OHS Act
  • development of of health and safety files
  • preparation and implementation of Baseline Risk Assessments
  • executing health and safety plans
  • preparation of reports

Structural Integrity Assessments

Services include conducting engineering investigation into and the determination of the causes of structural failures of buildings, bridges and other constructed facilities.  It involves a process of determining the reliability of an existing structure to carry current and future loads and fulfil the task for a given time period. The assessments include conducting structural monitoring, periodic measurement of displacements, strains, stresses and forensic investigation into damage on a structure.  The findings from the assessment provide guidance into recommendations for suitable remedial designs and precautionary measures to be implemented.

Construction Management

Our services involve:

  • the process of administering the construction contract
  • overseeing and/or inspection of works
  • ensuring works being completed are in compliance with the requirements of the contract and designs are being correctly interpreted
  • appropriate construction techniques are being utilized

We are experienced in a variety of contracts such as:

  • the General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (GCC2015)
  • New Engineering Contract family of contracts (NEC3)
  • International Federation of Consulting Engineers family of contracts (FIDIC)
  • Joint Building Contracts Committee family of contracts (JBCC 2000)

Pre-feasibility Studies

Prana Consulting has experience in conducting pre-feasibility and feasibility studies involving a wide array of engineering projects.  The process of a pre-feasibility study involves determining,  analyzing and selecting the best business scenarios for a proposed development from more than several possible cases/scenarios. Aspects such as the suitability of concepts to achieve project objectives, business feasibility in terms of profit generation, identification of risks and challenges, engineering and technical feasibility, costs and long-term viability all form part of the study outcomes.

For construction projects the process often includes accessibility of the project site, availability of resources, probable impact on environment and inhabitants near the site, funding required for the project and its possible source. The result of the study is the identification of the best suited scenario for a proposed development.

Feasibility Studies

Subsequent to a prefeasibility study, a feasibility study is then conducted on the selected option which involves, amongst others, assessing  suitability of the identified location for the proposed development, developing technical feasibility and a business case, and determining the suitability of the proposed development based on a “Needs Analysis”.

The feasibility study will establish whether the project is viable, help identify feasible options and assist in the development of other project documentation such as the business case, project execution plan and strategic brief.

Construction

In 2017, Prana Consulting diversified their services to include Construction, making us an emerging contractor specializing in civil construction and general building for clients in Public Sector, Commercial, Residential and the Mining space.

Our skilled construction team with a combined experience of more than 75 years have successfully delivered projects in:

  • Water and Sanitation
  • Roads
  • Housing
  • Structures

Our focus is on the delivery of roads, stormwater and supporting infrastructure, concrete works, earthworks, water and sewer, housing (new and renovations), electrical and sustainable energy.
