Formed in Johannesburg in 1967, as Charles Pein & Partners have expanded the practice into specialised areas of mechanical, electrical and fire engineering, continuing the original principle of full involvement in projects from concept to commissioning.
We have merged with our sister Company Marepo CC which has re-structured and formed a fully Affirmative Business Enterprise(ABE) company, CPP MAREPO CONSULTING ENGINEERS PTY Ltd
Now a Private Limited company, we have always had a strong effective base in Mechanical Engineering; firstly in conventional air-conditioning and ventilation of buildings, later branching out into highly specialised laboratory, nuclear and hospital installations.
Once Electrical Engineering Consulting Services were introduced, we became involved in the traditional power supply and lighting areas and communication systems, progressing to contemporary building service requirements including fire detection and protection, security and access control, building and energy management systems.
More recently, the company has developed a highly specialised team focussing specifically on Fire Engineering. Today we offer fire engineering solutions ranging from Rational Fire Design to integrated Life Safety Solutions through to Maintenance Management of Assets. Even before this “Rational Fire Design” buzz-word raised its head, we were involved in such installations as Boeing Aircraft Hangar fire protection installations, but to mention one. Therefore we are more than competent to deal with the application of SANS 0400 standards.
In the past we have also established a Wet Services division catering for Plumbing, Drainage & Water Services and to date have successfully designed several Buildings.
We have the technical expertise to consolidate the experience of over forty years of providing resources and services to Developers, Property Managers, Owners and Public Services.
Our clients represent a broad cross-section of Government and the Business Community in Southern Africa, with whom we have developed ongoing and mutually rewarding relationships. We welcome all opportunities to join with others in the development of capital and maintenance projects with whom we can share our experience.
As a multi-disciplinary, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic, Fire and Wet Services Engineering practice which has established techniques for working closely with other design and project administration professionals, we view the use of computer-aided draughting and design as essential to progress, and have the latest technology in CAD systems in all our offices.
Our reputation is established for optimising time spent on design and co-ordination of projects. We are thus able to keep pace with rapidly changing requirements, and ensure that we stay ahead during ‘fast-track’ construction projects.
We are experienced in producing Feasibility Studies and System Concept Reports carried out to test the viability of our proposals and where Health, Fire, Safety and other Local or National Authority Agencies have to be informed, we carry out Environmental Impact reviews and can make presentations to relevant Authorities anywhere in the World.
Our technical expertise covers the design, specification and quality control of the full spectrum of services we offer, for commercial, industrial, institutional and health development projects
