About the entity

Specialists in the Business of Design.


Modena Design Centres is the first Autodesk partner in Africa to specialise in the sale and implementation of Innovyze product solutions. In March 2021, Autodesk acquired Innovyze for $1 Billion to further expand its value proposition to the water industry.

By adding Innovyze solutions to their existing Autodesk portfolio, Modena is uniquely positioned to offer the South African water and wastewater industry a product used by top international design firms, and leading environmental and engineering consultancies. 

“There are over 20 major water and sanitation projects underway across South Africa and according to the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWC) they are all behind schedule. These projects are vital for the growth of the South African economy and unforeseen delays, cost overruns and design errors can be avoided when a product like Innovyze is used from the start of the project” says Cadi McKnight, director of Modena Infrastructure.

It is estimated that over a third of South Africa’s water supply is lost due to a lack of effective maintenance and ageing infrastructure. Innovyze is designed to cover the entire water lifecycle, and provides modelling, simulation, operational analytics and asset performance management solutions. This means that civil engineers, water utility companies, plant operators and water experts have access to valuable insights that will help them create and maintain sustainable, cost effective water and waste systems. The following Innovyze products solutions will be available from Modena:

  • InfoDrainage
  • InfoWorks ICM
  • InfoWater Pro
  • InfoWorks WS Pro
