BEHIND ENDURING CIVIL ENGINEERING IS DESIGN THAT WORKS. FOR LIFE.

Specialists in engineering design for civil, structural and environmental projects across Africa, as well as project and contract management

Ilifa is a South African owned engineering consulting firm. We have been serving clients across South Africa and the continent since 1981 - building a heritage for more than 35 years.

Ilifa is a Zulu word which means "bequest, heritage, inheritance or legacy".

It is not the honour you take with you, but the heritage you leave behind that will make a difference. At Ilifa we strive to create and leave something worthwhile and sustainable behind for the future generations of South Africans. It is the guiding principle behind everything that we do.
