Ernst & Young

EES project manages intelligent infrastructure for new Ernst & Young Johannesburg offices

The new Ernst & Young Johannesburg office currently under construction in the rapidly expanding Sandton Central Business District (CBD) epitomizes the latest in leading edge technology and design. Integral to this is the installation from day one of Information & Communication Technologies and intelligent infrastructure. 

EES, an ISO 9000 certified and ISO 20000 compliant professional engineering management company, was appointed by Ernst & Young to co-ordinate all IT related works associated with their new head office. EES is also responsible for ensuring all the IT commissioning criteria are met.

This is the most recent project in a series of high profile developments that EES has project managed. The projects range from corporate office headquarters, such as Alexander Forbes which is adjacent to the new Ernst & Young site, to international airports and global multi-purpose stadia.

It’s full steam ahead for EES in Johannesburg

It is full steam ahead at our new Bryanston offices – business is increasing and we have a number of inspiring new projects underway.  To keep pace we have increased our staff complement.   Laura Niehaus, Senior Project Manager, and Christie Cronje, Office Administrator and Brand Manager, have recently joined Jaco Cronje, Director; Thembi Lesebi, new Operations Analyst; and Ludwig Sabor, Technical Engineer, who has relocated to EES Johannesburg from our Cape Town offices.


Laura [M.Com (Wits University)] has spent many years in the field of IT and Project Management gaining invaluable experience.  She is committed to learning on an ongoing basis to stay ahead of technology and is receptive to change and able to adapt.  In addition to gaining knowledge through experience, she has completed a Programme in Marketing Management (UNISA) and a SAIETE-approved course in Data Communications.       


Laura is currently project managing Ernst & Young’s move to their new Johannesburg office in Sandton.  EES is co-ordinating all IT related works at the new office situated at 102 Rivonia Rd, opposite the Gautrain Sandton Station.  


Christie [B. Com Law (RAU); H. Dip Marketing Management (UNISA)] brings her valuable expertise and experience in marketing and brand management to support and help build the expanding Johannesburg team.


A new and particularly exciting development initiated in Johannesburg is the work we are currently carrying out on a project in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. 


In addition to enhancing our commitment to customer service, we believe our presence in Johannesburg is helping us cement relationships with existing clients and build relationships with new clients and other industry players.  In this regard, we are very pleased to launch our 90 second corporate video which outlines our capabilities and expertise – please take a look! 


On a lighter note, as myself and many of the Johannesburg staff members are avid cyclists, we’re closely following the Tour de France.  We are so proud to have witnessed the first African and South African to have worn the famous yellow jersey and are keenly supporting the current yellow jersey holder, Chris Froome, who came to know the professional sport of cycling in South Africa.


This newsletter would unfortunately not be complete without acknowledging the difficult time our country is going through as our former President and father of the nation, Madiba, lies ill in hospital.  Our thoughts and best wishes go out to him, his family and those close to him.
