Dumisani Biyela is a senior civil engineer with Mthabeleni Consultants. Biyela has more than 11 years of professional experience in the design and construction of bulk water supply, secondary bulk, reticulation and contract management. He worked on the ePhatheni Water Supply Scheme as a project manager, which won numerous South African Institution of Civil Engineering Awards for the best community-based project. Biyela says this was one of his best moments because he achieved great recognition along with his team. After working for a while in the municipal environment, Biyela decided that his work was becoming too routine-based, and decided to take a chance and join a newly established consulting firm. Throughout his success and experience, Biyela says he has learned that it’s important to get involved and learn to listen. He is also driven to excel by “an ability to learn new things on each assignment taken”.
