About Urban-Econ Pretoria

Urban-Econ was established in 1985 in Pretoria by Dr Judex Oberholzer and was subsequently joined by partners Eugene de Beer and Ben van der Merwe and after some time Russell Aird and Marika Cook also joined the partnership. The firm of highly specialised urban / land-use development economists has dynamically adjusted to changes in the market and pro-actively remains the leading consultancy of development economists in Southern Africa. Over time the firm has grown and in all its dimensions and adapted to the challenges it faced, such as consulting focus, range of services, professional specialisation, geographical decentralisation, etc. The Tshwane office functions as the Head Office of Urban-Econ, providing Strategic Management and Technical support to the branch offices, as well as primarily serving the Gauteng, North West, Limpopo and Free State Provinces. From this office the SADC market, as well as the African and other international markets are covered.

The Tshwane office also has a dedicated Tender Department focusing on Business Development and Networking. Apart from it geographical focus as mentioned earlier, the Tshwane office will also pursue National project opportunities.
