Development of the strategic public transport network of five districts in the Limpopo Province. The aim is to improve public transport to such a level that people currently using private cars find it attractive to rather use public transport.
The design of Beach Road in Vilanculos in Mozambique. Vilanculos is situated at the Bazaruto Archipelago, which consists of five prestige islands. Most of the Archipelago has been declared a National Park and sustains a diverse range of flora and fauna. The Park is protected by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
The project comprises the construction of the New Orlando Soccer Stadium. It is a 40 000 seat capacity stadium. The superstructure is constructed of reinforced concrete beams, columns and slabs. The brickwork is the cladding to the internal and external walls. The superstructure is covered with aluminium roof sheeting fixed onto structural steel trusses.
The project consisted of the design and detailing of the substructures for seven of the viaducts on the southern line of Gautrain. These substructures included piles, pile caps, spread footings, piers, pier heads and perched abutments. For each of the seven viaducts, the substructure was designed based on the geological conditions and geometry.
The project is for the upgrading/doubling of Charles Street between Atterbury Road and Queen Wilhelmina Drive. The scope requires the implementation of a four-lane dual carriageway road with new storm water infrastructure.
The implementation of the Bus Rapid Transit System, which is characterised by dedicated bus lanes, bus stations in the median, level boarding, pedestrian walkways and crossings. The project was done as a design construct initiative between Lonerock, Katide, Nyeleti and UWP engineers.
As far as possible all buildings on the plant were designed on the "green building" principle. This principle takes into account materials, construction methods, energy efficiency and impact on the environment and occupants. High levels of dust and noise had to be taken into account as well as a very corrosive environment. Due to the nature of the plant and the programme, construction methods allowing fast construction had to be considered. Structural detailing was done utilising the latest 3D detailing technology.
The Reading Interchange cut and cover tunnel structure was part of the Gauteng Freeway Improvement Project (GFIP), Package E2. SANRAL appointed the UWP - Nyeleti Joint Venture as consulting engineers with Nyeleti Consulting responsible for the structural design and UWP Consulting responsible for the geometric alignment and road design. Siyavaya Joint Venture was appointed as main contractor.
Several rehabilitation measures were conducted to ensure the required minimum structural life on the freeway, replacement of panels and sub base, repairing, reaming and sealing all severe cracking, regrooving of all areas with inadequate texturing, replacement of damaged traffic signs and broken concrete drain panels and regravelling of shoulders.
The Gezina Bulk Water Pipeline was constructed to replace an existing pipeline that reached the end of its design-life. The project entailed the construction of 8.3 km of ND500 steel pipeline and 18 concrete valve chambers. The final construction value of the project was approximately R65.4 million.
Mphego Village is located within the Thulamela local municipality area approximately 7 km east of Thohoyandou. The primary objective of this project was to ascertain that Mphego and Tshikhudini villages receive adequate water supply and that the there is sufficient water storage for all two villages. Mphego has 1160 households and Tshukhudini has 1500. It was also a requirement that Mphego be fully reticulated with metered yard connections. Mphego’s water reticulation network would be upgraded and pipes sized according to DWA guidelines. Pipe classes ranged from class 9 to 16. A new 2.4 ml concrete reservoir was required for the shortfall in storage capacity.
Malamulele West RWS project is a water reticulation project done by Nyeleti Consulting at Malamulele for the Vhembe Municipality. It comprises five phases made up of 21 villages in total. The first two stages are complete and the project is now currently in the third and fourth phase. The villages vary in size, with Phaphazela being the biggest village made up of over 2000 stands and Tambaulate being the smallest with just 97 stands. The project scope ranges from water reticulation design (RDP standard) to design of storage reservoirs, elevated tanks and bulk pipelines.
The assembly building at BMW's Rosslyn plant is about 60 years old and consisted of a low saw-toothed profile roof, supported by numerous closely spaced columns. By the start of 2018, BMW will produce the new X3 models instead of the 3 series and during planning they realised that a 4 100m² portion of the current B50 structure had to be modified to accommodate the latest assembly line technology. The proposed system is called H-EMS (Heavy Electric Monorail System), and consists of overhead conveyors hanging from the roof which support height-adjustable hangers that carry the vehicles being assembled. The roof and column structure of the existing assembly building was inadequate for this purpose, and a new, higher, heavier roof was required with columns spaced as far apart as possible. Nyeleti Consulting's scope was to design the new roof to comply with the requirements listed above without interfering with the operations of the assembly. Based on Nyeleti's experience with incremental bridge launching, the concept of launching the roof horizontally into its position was developed. The result was a high quality, innovative and aesthetic design that met the client's requirements. The project also met the very tight deadlines for deliverables in an environment with many constraints. Nyeleti executed the design of the new roof, BMW South Africa was the client and Teichmann Structures was the main contractor.
