“Commit yourself to quality from day one... it's better to do nothing at all than to do something badly.”
- Mark McCormack

“Success is where preparation and opportunity meet.”
- Bobby Unser

“Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.”
- Jim Rohn

The management and team at Monolith comprise from a diverse and vibrant mix of design, engineering, surveying and draughting backgrounds. The Company was created to address specific design needs in the mining and industrial sectors, where it benefits from its accumulative experience with international best practice and expertise in the mining and construction sectors. We are driven to seek optimum efficiency and reliability at the best possible quality for our Clients.

We work with registered engineers and project managers to provide a full scope of services ranging from conceptual process, mechanical, structural, and civil design, to detailing and execution drawings. We have the capability to create analytical and physical models for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). This is supported by 4D construction sequencing and simulation. 4D simulations engage project teams and owners to better understand subject matter and comprehend the outcomes and performance parameters of a specific project. Most shortcomings and flaws can be identified and corrected in such a virtual environment prior to build execution, thus saving time and construction cost.

Our service offering is furthermore extended with our Project Lifecycle Management (PLM) approach, where we capitalise on a project’s comprehensive design data with our ability to structure that as the foundation of operational management and 4D SCADA platforms.
