Swartland Bulk Water Pipeline (Start Jan 2014 – March 2014)

  • Highly specialised work detail. Technical knowledge of products and correct application was critical. This was in relation to both proper surface preparation and correct procedures followed for drying and curing times between products and the various applications.
  • The timing of the different stages and knowing when surface is suitable for the application of materials was of paramount importance and was a large factor in determining the success or failure of the project. Understanding the concrete matrix was important as various concrete re-pour monitors had to be used when necessary.
  • Careless work and poor workmanship could have had dire consequences as the pipe line was a main artery and water supply to numerous towns.
