A contract for 96 subsidy houses has been signed with the North West Department of Housing.
A CCMT has been established and they are actively involved in the development process. Initial implementation was impeded by the need for a geo-technical assessment that has since been concluded and approved by the Province. Currently 10 units are at wall plate level and 10 foundations cast. A new requisite that the project be registered with the NHBRC has temporarily suspended construction as synchronization of joint inspections has not been achieved.
FEDUP has taken up the matter with the Province, PMU, NHBRC, Municipality and Engineer. Resolution was taken that an Inspector of the PMU be dedicated to work with the Engineer and resolve the technical issues at project level. Claims have been submitted to the Department for current milestone payments.
