Overcoming challenges and delivering on time: ICON proves dynamic on large industrial estate project

09 November 2020

Earthworks and civils contractor, ICON Group, has recently completed their scope of work on a section of the S&J Industrial Estate in Johannesburg’s East Rand. The property has been in development for several years and will offer project opportunities for several more years to come.

Starting in late August 2020, ICON was appointed to prepare a 50 000m2 site on the estate for Spare Pro – a provider of motor spares and accessories. “The scope of work included bulk earthworks, retaining walls, stormwater drainage, sewer lines and more,” explains Wayne Neary, ICON Group’s Managing Director. “We were delighted to offer our broad range of services to the client, who took advantage of our multifaceted capabilities. By making use of one civils contractor, the client could fast-track the project reliably and professionally.”

According to Neary, the project took into consideration the highest safety standards. “We don’t see safety as a hurdle or a hold-up. In fact, at ICON, we feel that when we work safely, it makes us more efficient. This is the name of the game these days, where time- and cost-efficiency are vital in ensuring a project is viable, and the client is happy.”
