The mini-factory development comprises a total of 18 units, which range from 249.63 m2 to 527,26 m2 in size, and includes manufacturing and assembly warehousing space, a reception area, storeroom, kitchen and toilets, as well as a mezzanine office and open plan areas.
In addition, five dedicated parking bays, as well as one shared paraplegic bay (per two units) are provided and included in the rental cost. The complex also provides for easy truck access, enhanced by dedicated loading/delivery bays, together with a large, shared loading/delivery bay, which is also included in the rental.
The major challenge was the procurement and management of the Enterprise Development Partners (SMME’s) on the project. However, through implementation of various systems including an Enterprise Development Mentorship Programme we have successfully managed this aspect to great applause by the Professional Team and Client.
The Client in their strategy planning going forward has adopted some aspects of our approach, in respect of Management of Enterprises Development Partners on their Construction Programmes.
