About Jason Webster – Founder

Jason started studying at Unitec Institute of Technology in Auckland New Zealand in 1997. Jason’s work experience started in late 1999 at Lukhozi Consulting of East London. Worked on various rural water supply projects as clerk of work in the Eastern Cape.

In 2001 Jason relocated to Pretoria and working for BKS in the bridge engineering section as a design draughtsman. His experience during this time included the Smit Street deck design drawings for the Nelson Mandela Bridge in Johannesburg.

In 2002 Jason went to New Zealand to obtain his Certificate of Engineering and complete his Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree at Unitec. During this time he worked at Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) in Auckland. Here he was responsible for the geometric design and detailing of the North Shore City Council upgrade of their waste water network, particularly the bulk outfall in Brown’s Bay.

As his appointment with SKM was a contract appointment in 2003 he obtained a Civil Design Technician post with BECA Carter Hollings and Ferner in Auckland. As part of the Auckland Motorway Alliance team, he worked in the project office in Grafton Gully and was responsible for the design detailing for various roads and bridges for the Central Motorway Junction Project, the Grafton Gully Project and the Rewa River Bridge (Fiji).

From 2004 to 2006 he worked with Thurlow Consulting Engineers in Auckland as an engineer. His wife and he then returned to South Africa in mid 2006 where he worked with Stemele Bosch Africa in their newly opened Johannesburg office at the time as the Lead Engineer of their Roads and Development section.
