“I think we, as a group, can be very proud that the work we do fundamentally improves someone’s life,” says former GeoAfrika CEO Peter Hoffman. “We really do believe we can bring any project to fruition and make a difference in people’s lives.”
There is a strong focus on transformation, and they take great pride in being the most transformed surveying company in South Africa, and not just the largest. GeoAfrika has provided bursaries to young, black land surveying students for more than 30 years, and also offers new graduates the opportunity to complete their articles at GeoAfrika. This created transformation long before it was a B-BBEE imperative, and has formed the basis for a strong, diversified professional team.
The company has an impressive list of clients, including Transnet, Tongaat Hulett, SANRAL, eThekwini Municipality, Eskom, Illovo, Daimler, Leisure Club, AECOM and the Department of Human Settlements, among others.
