About Us


Nnete Consulting Engineers is the new name for the Polokwane office of Murango Consulting Engineers.  The restructuring of Murango Consulting Engineers resulted in the formation of a new company (namely Nnete Consulting Engineers) which took over the resources, staff and projects that resided under the Polokwane office. Hence the project experience from the Polokwane office of Murango is totally relevant to Nnete Consulting Engineers

Although the company shareholding currently resides solely under D Hovy, growth of the newly formed company would ensure empowerment to historically disadvantaged individuals. From mentorship and other avenues the ownership would be reviewed regularly to broaden the shareholding.

Although Nnete Consulting Engineers is an emerging company, it has the combined expertise of more than 50 years of professional experience between its director and the professionals it is in association with. The company specializes in civil engineering (which includes water services, municipal services infrastructure, township roads and streets, services to building complexes, hydrology), agricultural engineering (irrigation and animal husbandry), as well as electrical engineering and project management. Nnete Consulting Engineers believes in providing a professional service with integrity and total commitment to serve the client’s needs. Nnete undertakes to work only on projects for which they are qualified for and to be honest and efficient in the administration of its consultancy practice.
