Saps Dog School Property Upgrade

The South African Police Services (SAPS) Dog School at Roodeplaat near Pretoria is undergoing an upgrade and extension of the building.

Liviero construction has started the upgrade and extension project valued at R134 million to build bigger, better quarters for the SAPS canine crime fighters.

Liviero construction has started the upgrade and extension project valued at R134 million to build bigger, better quarters for the SAPS canine crime fighters.

Neil Cloete, chief executive officer of Liviero, says the project entails building new dog kennels, offices and a bulk food store as well as repairs to the existing buildings.

With the site located at Roodeplaat Dam, environmental management is high on Liviero’s agenda, and Cloete stresses that a stringent environmental management plan will minimise the construction project’s impact on this ecologically sensitive area.

More than 1.3 million bricks will be used in this contract, along with 6 681m3 of concrete.

The project is scheduled for completion in February 2014.

A R131 million contract for the construction of a new police station at Madadeni, near the northern KwaZulu-Natal town of Newcastle, has also been awarded to Liviero, and will be undertaken in a joint venture with local building company River Queen Trading.

This project includes the construction of a new double storey police station, as well as a cell block, storage block and accommodation comprising married and single quarters.

It is due for completion in August 2014.

Job creation and training are important elements of Liviero’s new contracts, which, Cloete explains, fall under the Department of Public Works’ “Contract Participation Goal” (CPG) and “Expanded Public Works” programme, and feature stringent requirements in terms of community involvement, empowerment and the use of targeted enterprises such as SMMEs and black-owned businesses.

“Liviero will achieve a CPG of 40 percent on both these contracts, which means that 40 percent of the contract works will be carried out by targeted enterprises,” he explains.

At Roodeplaat, the training of youth has been identified as a priority and Liviero has set a target of 84 youth workers to be trained during the course of the 20-month contract in various construction disciplines.
