Concor Western Cape scores three safety awards at MBAWC

07 August 2018

Concor Western Cape has again proved itself a world class contractor by winning three out of the five building categories in the Master Builders Association Western Cape (MBAWC) 2018 Regional Safety Competition. Mark Fugard, MD of Concor Western Cape, says these MBAWC accolades from are an acknowledgement and recognition of the exemplary health, safety and environmental programme that the company has in place across all its sites.

In Category D for project values between R14 million and R40 million, Concor Western Cape was placed first for its Signature Lux project. This project scope involved internal demolition and stripping out of an old heritage-status six-storey building and converting it into an 88 key Signature Lux hotel.

For the second year in a row, the company’s 16 Nettleton Road project was placed first in Category F: projects from R100 million to R150 million, for construction of a luxury residential house built over seven levels on the steeply inclined seaward side of Nettleton Road, Clifton.

The Aurum luxury lifestyle development in Bantry Bay scored another first for Concor Western Cape, this time in Category G for project from R250million to R450million. This project includes building on each side of the busy Victoria Road with the sumptuous Presidential Residences cascading down to the water’s edge below the road, and the 15 plush Luxury Residences climbing the hill above the road.

“Safety is a key performance requirement on the project with traffic and pedestrian management vital to project performance success, considering the constant heavy flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic passing the site,” Fugard says. During construction use was made of closed-circuit cameras focused on various points on the road between the two buildings to ensure that traffic and pedestrian behaviour was closely monitored and that construction staff managed the traffic flow while accepting the necessary deliveries of concrete, bricks and other materials.

“We believe that securing these awards further underpins Concor Western Cape’s capabilities in delivering complex projects on time, within budget and most importantly safely,” Fugard concludes.
