North End Lake Rehabilitation (Ongoing project)


The North End Lake in Port Elizabeth was in desperate need for rehabilitation due to extreme levels of water pollution.  The lake is very popular for activities such as power boating, canoeing and angling. The high bacterial levels made the water unsafe for any recreational activities.
 
The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality in Port Elizabeth assigned Kayalihle Trading as the main contractor for the rehabilitation of the lake.

Walmer Detention Pond (Ongoing project)
 

The suburb of  Walmer and surrounding areas in Port Elizabeth is plagued by severe flooding when it rains. Flooding leads to what is called “ponding” in these areas.
 
To address this problem, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality launched the Walmer Detention Ponds and storm water drainage project.

Riverbank Lodge (Completed project) 


There’s a river flowing at the back of River Lodge Complex and due to the flow there were some major concerns with regard to erosion close to the units located at the back of the complex.
 
The body corporate decided to have a gabion river wall and river mattress installed in order to avoid the erosion further into the Complex boundary.

Gabions as Bomb Shelter


Recently we were invited to assist the CSIR on their facilities, located in Paardefontein, Pretoria North, with the repair of gabion structures used as protection for bomb shelters. The goal was to find out whether the gabions that were damaged during explosions or ballistic testing could be repaired by only focusing on the affected section.
