    The new facility will consist of one Grade R classroom and eight classrooms, providing learners with a comfortable and safe learning environment.

  • Cost-effective workforce housing supplied to support major oil refinery shutdown

    Whilst South Africa is heavily dependent on petroleum products to keep the economy running, major refineries need to periodically suspend or circumvent crude oil production to conduct routine maintenance, renovations and repairs. We recently played a major role in the facilitation of a smooth turnaround process when SAPREF – Southern Africa’s largest crude oil refinery – implemented a three-month statutory shutdown in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

    We were contracted by Ark Lodge Camp to provide 16 two-bedroom sleeper units (to accommodate 64 contract workers) and a large canteen at Bluff Eco Park. Our flexible options allowed the client reduced capital expenditure, fulfilling the client’s short-term needs. As part of our value-added services, we also provided kitchen equipment, furniture and bedding.
