The results of Consulting Engineers South Africa’s (CESA) bi-annual Economic and Capacity Survey for the period July to December 2011, just released, indicate that conditions in the consulting engineering industry have eased slightly with member firms being involved in design and feasibility studies. Capacity utilisation within member firms has increased from 80% in the first 6 months of last year to 90% in the period under review. All of this planning needs to be converted into actual projects and in this regard the industry is waiting in anticipation of Government’s promised (R844 billion in the next 3 years) spend on infrastructure.
