About Us

BFBA DURBAN CONSULTANTS is a well established Electrical Engineering consulting company in Durban.

We come from humble beginnings being established in 1955 by the late Ervin Biderman originally called “E.Biderman-Consulting Engineer”. By the early 1960’s Trevor Finn and Cor Beekhuizen were taken in as partners and the company Biderman Finn Beekhuizen and Associates was established in Johannesburg.

A milestone in the history of the company was the establishment of the first branch office in Durban in 1968. Two years later, Trevor Finn relocated from Johannesburg and took the fledging branch under his leadership.

Since its founding, the company has been involved in many successful projects throughout South Africa and offers a wide variety of expertise and experience in order to deliver projects on time and within budget. Our business model is based on the accomplishment of innovative, energy efficient design of electrical and electronic engineering and to value engineer the most cost effective solutions for clients in the Built Environment, relating to Educational, Industrial, Commercial, Health Care and Residential Facilities.

“We take pride in being a Durban based company for over 50 years.”
