Infrastructure engineering and project management company Stemele Bosch Africa (SBA), part of B&A Group, has been commissioned by the eThekwini municipality, in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), to design water and sewerage connections to containerised ablution blocks. This is part of a R450-million upgrade of ablution facilities for about 345 informal settlements in the greater eThekwini municipal area.
SBA is also responsible for the construction supervision of the water and sewerage connections to each ablution facility, as well as the concrete plinths which the containers are placed on, says SBA director Morrell Rosseau.
The project team will also ensure that the water use is metered and that there is an electricity connection for lighting.
Separate male and female ablutions each contain three showers, three toilets and two hand basins, as well as external troughs for washing clothes.
SBA focuses on infrastructure projects and provides multi- disciplinary consulting engineering and project manage- ment services in KZN and throughout Southern Africa and the rest of Africa.
