Power Construction’s Building Division has recently completed a major project upgrade at Barloworld Transport’s Depot in Kraaifontein.
Johnny Moore, head of Power’s Building division, reports the successful completion was on on time, on budget and of high quality.
“This project in Kraaifontein East involved partial demolition and alterations to the existing office block, construction of new warehouse, trucker’s accommodation, wash bay, tank filling facilities and external works. The site works which covered more than 1 615m2 and included 68 parking bays began in January 2016 and practical completion was achieved a year later.
“This is Barloworld Transport’s new maintenance facility and incorporates all Barloworld Transport requirements - from maintenance, spray-painting, vehicle testing and a state of the art wash bay for their fleet of logistics vehicles.
“We encountered a number of challenges with complex structural details which accommodated amongst other things, a water recycling plant that allows Barloworld Transport to recycle 90% of the water used on the premises.
“We received commendation reviews from Barloworld Transport senior management on the quality of work executed on this new facility and great credit is due to our committed project team for upholding the Power tradition of superior construction and project management” he said.
