Involvement in Botswana

ACE GIBB is particularly proud of its continuous involvement in the development of infrastructure of Botswana over the past 30 years, since its initial work on Shashe Dam and Selebi Phikwe Town between 1969 and 1974. At its peak in the late 1980s, ACE GIBB employed many Botswana nationals. Currently, ACE GIBB has a staff complement consisting of engineers and administrative staff.

ACE GIBB is able to propose the assignment of senior technical staff with extensive, relevant experience in Botswana and the Southern African region, and who have successfully delivered projects in Botswana over the years. ACE GIBB has also been involved in projects for many other Botswana clients in the private sector, such as education, insurance, banking and mining sectors.

GIBB in Africa

With infrastructure being the backbone of the continent’s economy, we find ourselves broadening our own scope, to offer turnkey solutions to our clients and ultimately taking Africa forward.

At GIBB, we nurture the skills, starting at our own offices by harnessing top talent and developing future leaders in engineering, and our work speaks for itself.
