About CES Namibia

Positive People. Forward thinking.


In September 2006, International Development Consultancy (IDC) expanded to an extent that the different entities commenced to operate separately and the Quantity Surveying section commenced to operate as IDC Quantity Surveying.

Late in 2010, CES Group contacted IDC Quantity Surveying and negotiations commenced for the amalgamation of CES and IDC Quantity Surveying in Namibia. The negotiations were concluded at the end of February 2011 and the Quantity Surveying practice commenced to operate as Cost Engineering Services Namibia (CES Namibia).

CES Namibia has the ability to manage your projects from cradle to grave.
