Brewery to be built in SA

12 Aug 2008

A R549m contract has been awarded to build Heineken's first brewery in South Africa.

The building and civil engineering business units of Grinaker-LTA, part of the JSE-listed Aveng Group, are undertaking this project in a 50/50 joint venture, explains contracts director Richard Amm.

The 70,000sq m brewery in Randvaal, south east of Johannesburg, will comprise production buildings and cool cellars, as well as a bottling and distribution warehouse for Heineken SupplyCo (Pty) Ltd, the brewing and distribution company for beer brand Amstel. A fast-track construction programme will see the new brewery completed in June 2009.

"The programme is very tight as process contractors are required to be given access to each building and sections of each building on sectional completion dates."

The buildings at the brewery are generally concrete, structural steel and brick structures, with steel roof sheeting on all buildings. Some 30,000m3 of concrete will be used in the project, together with 3,500 tons of structural steel and 2m bricks.
