Mining Infrastructure

The team at Design Point Consulting Engineers has been working in the mining industry for a number of years and we offer niche water and structural engineering services. Our aim is to find solutions that are practical and cost-effective in a dynamic mining environment.

We cover the full range of water systems on mines, from conceptualization and mine planning right through to construction and operational support.

We also provide technical support and specialist studies to produce water infrastructure designs for Integrated Water Usage License Applications (IWULA) and environmental management programmes, which form an integral part of these applications.
