Fanie Lombaard Engineering Services (FLES) is a small civil engineering firm located in Centurion that specialises in consulting, design and draughting services in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors.
At FLES we believe in the importance of promoting civil engineering in all aspects of construction to give our clients an ultimate peace of mind.

We at FLES have extensive experience in the building industry. We stay up to date with building regulations and standards. We can recommend as deemed to satisfy regulations for common challenges faced in the industry. We also develop tailored solutions for challenging designs that are not common in the industry.
We make every effort to inform and protect the end client (mostly property owners) and to develop the best possible solution for all parties involved. By working daily in consultation with architects, town councils, the National Home Builders Registration Council (NHBRC) and contractors or builders, we have an excellent understanding of the procedures to follow and approvals required.
It is recommended that architectural plans are sent to a qualified engineer for structural evaluation prior to finalising detailed plans and the tender process. This will ensure that surprises and likely unforeseen costs are minimal during construction, as well as that the structure is safe and will function as intended. Having worked with architects on almost all projects to date, FLES has the ability to combine functionality without compromising aesthetics.
Contractors or builders are required to follow construction specifications and building regulations to ensure quality and cost effective construction. FLES can supply and give guidance on general specifications, as well as formulate particular specifications for specialist works. By following specifications, FLES can provide accurate cost to completion estimations.
Where do we operate?
FLES operates all over Gauteng. By making use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and optimized systems we are able to work remotely from our Centurion Office. However, in all cases where FLES is appointed as the Engineer, works will have to be inspected in person during the course of construction. Travel costs will be included in quotations.
Engineers at FLES are qualified civil engineers that have been trained in finding solutions for challenges faced in the building industry. This includes solving problems from first principle design through to advanced analysis techniques. We abide by the laws of physics, material properties and building regulation to ensure that the vision and function of structures are achieved. We here at FLES have designed high architectural residential structures to large functional industrial structures.
We specialise in the design of:
- Steel Structures
- Reinforced Concrete Structures and foundations
- Composite design (Reinforced concrete integrated with structural steel, Reinforced Concrete and Masonry structures, etc.)
- Residential Construction
- Commercial and industrial construction
- Project Management
It is of utmost importance that construction specifications are relayed in a clear and concise manner to contractors, builders and quantity surveyors. This allows for accurate estimation of materials and clear scope brief for all relevant parties. We here at FLES strive for the highest standard of relaying details and specifications.
