Our Story

I always wanted to be a land surveyor and never considered being anything else.  Although this in itself is not strange, what is odd is that I never actually knew a land surveyor or had any idea what a land surveyor does!  Perhaps it was a calling.

 

Now, 35 years later, I am a still a land surveyor and loving it.  Having being exposed to various disciplines within land surveying, we chose to settle and practice from a rural setting in order to satisfy my profound love for the African bush.  Don't be fooled to believe that a rural practice is restrictive  in nature - we provide a wide range of services to various national and international clients due to specific expertise offered.

 

My career started with Eskom in Rustenburg and I was deployed in Schweizer-Reneke after obtaining a national diploma in surveying.   I put all on the line by resigning to attend university on a full-time basis.  After graduation (cum laude) I did my articles with the Kwazulu-Natal Government in Ulundi and eventually joined a private practice in Empangeni.  Thereafter I joined Water Affairs in Pretoria where I worked for 10 years.

 

After a short stint at MHP Geomatics in Centurion the family settled in Lydenburg in September 2008 when we established the company Coetsee Nel Inc.  along with land surveyor Martin Coetsee.

 

Again, all was put on the line when we decided to go at it alone from January 2015.

 

We decided to continue a long and proud history of land surveyors that have been involved  and committed to proving survey services dedicated to the Lydenburg region specifically.

 

Much have changed over the years as surveying has generally become easier, and legislation more complex.  The traditional land surveying service were extended and improved to provide a comprehensive property development service that is based on modern technologies and principles whilst being professionally sound.

 

Development is much more than surveying...it is a complex process full of pitfalls and risks.  We now also offer civil commercial mediation services as an alternative dispute resolution option.
