A comprehensive on site plotting and printing facility is operated by the practice for the production of documentation. A comprehensive backup facility for all software is provided. All documentation is saved to a central file server and portable hard drive. The portable hard drive is stored in a fire proof safe. All electronic documentation is archived for 10 years. McAvinchey Consulting Engineers is a level 4 certified BEE company. The company has worked successfully in all major centres on large projects. MAC Consulting has worked for the Collins Group since 2006 on all their projects in Durban and Gauteng.
The practice offers one of the most effective bills of quantities which have been developed over the past 10 years. All projects are designed up front and measured in detail to minimise the provisional sums and therefore obtain an accurate cost at tender stage. Variances to date have been within five percent. The result is effective cost control through close liaison with modern Quantity Surveying practices. All projects are controlled by means of ‘hands-on’ site engineering and commissioning, including monitoring of maintenance contracts and post occupation performance.

MAC’s Work Environment Awakens The Senses
Most early mornings, the smell of the fresh salty sea breeze welcomes you at our offices in Milnerton, awakening the senses to ensure an energising start to the day!
Listen closely and you will hear the silence of engineering minds deep in concentration, sometimes murmuring as they discuss technicalities of a project. Both the silence and a buzz of engineering voices make for a productive environment.
With staff genuinely liking each other, having spent many years working through good and bad times, one can feel the loyalty of staff and warm hearts of management.
One look at the neat and effective layout of our offices and you could be assured that that leads to quality work and attention to detail.
And then, as you sit down for a coffee or a glass of wine, you could almost taste the joy of the cheerful environment MAC creates for all – staff and clients.
