The eThekwini Municipality’s ‘Provision of Water and Sanitation to Informal Settlements Project’was awarded the 2018 SAICE Durban Branch Award for the ‘Most Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement’ in the category of community-based projects.
Bosch Projects is 1 of 4 design consultants to provide professional engineering and construction supervision services to the eThekwini Municipality, for the delivery of communal ablution facilities to informal settlements in the region.
The Bosch Projects team worked closely with the eThekwini Municipality, to secure the supply of potable water and basic sanitation services, to some of the poorest communities in KwaZulu-Natal. Through this project, more than 118 000 people living in 34 informal settlements across the city, are benefitting from the provision of 300 communal ablution facilities.
Bosch Projects has sub-consulted with 2 eThekwini development design consultants – Lwazi Project Management and Masithu Consulting and Project Managers – in a mentorship role, with emphasis on skills development to accelerate training and knowledge transfer. Bosch Projects consults in the areas of business development, project management, design and construction supervision across the project life cycle, where multiple teams collectively implement the project.
The Bosch Projects team is proud to be part of such a meaningful project, which is improving the quality of life and restoring the dignity of so many people.
This project, now goes forward as a nomination for the SAICE National Awards later this year
