History of MCB Consulting Engineers.

The practice was formed in 1964 by an amalgamation of the following three firms:  Heney & Trevorrow – 1948; D. D. Thorp – 1955 and Wilken & MacKenzie – 1959.

The practice operated as a partnership under the style of Thorp Trevorrow MacKenzie & Bothma until 1974 when the name was changed to Mackenzie Cairns & Bothma. In March 1991 the name changed again to MacKenzie Cairns & Browne. The partnership was converted to a (Pty) Limited company in 2000. It is currently trading as MCB Consulting Engineers.
