Background

Ferdi has 17 years experience in the delivery of large civil infrastructure projects in the UK, South Africa, various African nations and New Zealand.

Much of Ferdi’s experience to date has been on delivery of utilities works, either in the form of utilities diversions as part of an enabling works package, or the delivery of major transmission lines. Ferdi also has considerable experience in other sectors such as rail, tunnelling and mining.

A broad project experience ranging from feasibility studies to construction implementation enables Ferdi to contribute to the overall success of projects by understanding and looking at the details without losing sight of the bigger picture.
