Over these years he has been a Drilling Contractor and a Superintendent on a number of projects I have been involved in.They have always come up to the challenge and used his years of experience to get the job done.

With a backlog of bores, meeting Dip Civils deadline became critical at our site “SteynCity Gauteng”. HDDAfrica started the first bore in October 2014 and completed the last in December 2014. When all was said and done, bores totaling 11200 meters were completed weeks ahead of time, connecting water, gas ,fiber and sewer to mainlines and gave Dip Civils peace of mind.
HDD Africa’s growing resume can be attributed to their dedication to making sure each project, no matter how small or large, meets their clients’ expectations and is completed on time and on budget.Piet Botha
