Celebrating the Milestone with Clients

 
 

2007 marks the 85th anniversary of one of our long standing clients, Jeffares & Green Group, first established in 1922 as "Mr JLS Jeffares Consulting Practice". The company's 85th anniversary was celebrated at various regions and provided a tribute to the achievements of pioneers

of engineering in Africa. This tribute was presented to guests in the form of a book entitled, Chronicles from the Bushveld. Knowledge Base would like to congratulate Jeffares & Green on reaching this milestone.

In the picture from left to right is Reece Hanning from Knowledge Base with CEO Chris Robinson, the Marketing Manager Charmagne Denny, and Director Gerry Poswell all from Jeffares and Green.

"You can easily change the layout, or just drag your drawing across to another position on the site using the Survey & Terrain module. It's simple and once you have completed the design, you just merge your terrace with the underlying grounds profile to create a final site model."
