Meet the Team - Dirk Du Bois

I started my career in December 1994 as an apprentice draughtsman at EMS, a project management company in Cape Town. Since then, I have been working in a multi-discipline engineering environment for the last 29 years.

I am qualified as a civil and structural designer and registered as an Architectural Technologist with the South African Council of Architectural professionals.

Over the years I have gained experience in various industries and projects as a 3d designer, site supervisor, and later, design office manager. I have been involved with some interesting projects in the past, to name but a few highlights of my career.

Liqhobong diamond mine - Lesotho. One of the largest diamond mines in Lesotho and in the world. The mine is in the Maloti Mountains.

Rheinmetall Denel Munition (RDM) high explosive and pyrotechnical plant in Cape Town - in excess of 200HA with more than 100 individual buildings.

Swakopmund Desalination Plant - Namibia. The plant can currently produce 20 million cubic meters of desalinated water a year.
Biovac bio-pharmaceutical company - new Facility design Cape Town.

Mozel Aluminium smelter - The Mozal Project included the construction of a 250,000-ton-per-annum primary aluminium smelter located west of Maputo city in Mozambique.

At the end of 2022, I was given the opportunity to join the engineering team at Stormwater360 as a Stormwater design consultant. I am very excited to start this new chapter of my career and to be part of a company that is passionate about the environment and a sustainable future.
