Unisa Sunnyside Campus re-development

Africoast Consulting Engineers was appointed by the University of South Africa in Pretoria to oversee all civil and structural renovations for the Sunnyside South Campus which comprised of dilapidated properties including houses, ablution facilities and flats that required major renovations to bring them to an acceptable and habitable state. Some properties needed to be demolished as they were in a state of no repair and as a result of continuous vandalism the damage was significant. Portions of the campus were deemed to be of heritage significance as most buildings are over 60 years of age and are subjected to the regulation of the National Heritage. Africoast Consulting Engineers provided structural and civil services for earthworks design, roads, platforms, parking lots, storm water, sewers and more.

The Scope of Works for the project included:

         Architectural work

         Quantity surveying work

         Buildings to be renovated and ideal usage

         Buildings to be demolished

         External works

         Civil and structural work
