Procurement services

Shadow bids / zero profit margin bids

Our core expertise are former contract mining specialists who have gained considerable experience in estimating, from first principles, the costs associated with open-pit mining applications – from 30 to 380 ton payload trucks, drill and blast, manpower requirements and taxes, to mobilization, amortization of capital equipment, overhead and markup – which enabled us to successfully procure multi-million dollar mining contracts.

Enquiries & tender documents

During two decades of applying sound Construction Management principles and experience drawn from Construction Management assignments on more than 50 multi-commodity projects across Africa, has helped us to identify and mitigate risk in planning and executing projects. Since construction projects require management of the process, whether it’s done in-house or with hired expertise, the incremental cost of hired expertise can be more than offset by the cost efficiencies of better planned and coordinated construction.

Contract mining agreements

Unique to our tenders and contract mining agreements are the analysis of the impact that is conducted during project initiation with incremental updates throughout the project life cycle to define and prioritise sustainability risks and opportunities in order to improve the project value; the impact to the environment, society and economy as well as the project’s alignment organisational strategy.
