About Our Company

The Whitecode Group


Founded in 1994 as Whitecode Design Associates Ltd, the practice has subsequently grown into a multi-disciplinary international consultancy comprising four distinct companies. The Whitecode Group includes Whitecode Design Associates Ltd, a leading MEP consultancy specialising in large-scale, mixed-use developments. Walker Mower (founded in 1975) was acquired by the Group in 2011 as a well-established MEP consultancy specialising in retail, offices and schools therefore increasing the Group’s scope of services. Whitecode Developments was established in 2011 in response to the needs of our clients for a quality assurance service during construction and to provide building analytics services for the identification and management of post-construction defects. Whitecode South Africa was founded in 2014 and provides a high quality digital draughting facility for the Group as well as project management, interior design and architectural services.
