"Uhambiso" means "to deliver"
Uhambiso originates from one of South Africa’s leading consulting engineering firms, Liebenberg & Stander. Liebenberg & Stander was established in 1954 as a partnership between Charles Liebenberg and Ruben Stander. In 1995 Liebenberg & Stander was dissolved and the business of the Liebenberg & Stander partnership was taken over by independent companies. These companies are: Uhambiso Consult, Bergstan SA and LS Consult. All three companies share resources on large projects or where specific specialist knowledge is not readily available in any one of the companies.
One of the reasons for the separation into discrete companies and subsequent name differentiation was to enable the respective entities to follow transformation strategies to suit their own specific regions/business environments.
Uhambiso Consult has grown from a small firm to a medium sized consulting engineering business with offices in the Eastern Cape, Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZulu Natal.
