Ramtar Construction were recently approached by ShreeProp, a large Durban based property development group, to install subsoil drainage in a new warehouse facility in the Southgate Business Park. The property was continually flooded with groundwater and a solution was needed to ensure that the layerworks for the pavements at the rear of the building would maintain their integrity. Ramtar Construction installed innovative flownet cut-off drains on the perimeter of the building and are currently installing a herringbone system of subsoil drains over the rest of the area. The rain over the past months has not helped and site conditions are challenging to say the least!
The completion of the Strelitzia School Science Hall in Ispingo, officially christened the "Golden Pond 67 Science Centre" marks a milestone for Ramtar Construction this year. The 180 square meter hall is a learning facility dedicated to science, chemistry and computer science and boasts a 60 seat lecture and demonstration hall, a computer LAN, office and storeroom.
