KWANONQABA HOUSING PROJECT WINS GOVAN MBEKI AWARD

The Mossel Bay Municipality has received yet another award, this time the Govan Mbeki award for the best People’s Housing Project in the Western Cape. The award was announced at a function hosted by the Western Cape Minister of Human Settlements, Mr Bonginkosi Madikizela, in Milnerton on 23 April 2015.

The KwaNonqaba Enhanced People’s Housing Process (PHP) Project was adjudged the winner in its category and will now be entered as the Western Cape’s entry for the national Govan Mbeki Awards, a competition organised by the national Department of Human Settlements to promote and inculcate a culture of excellence within the human settlement sector in South Africa.

The KwaNonqaba PHP, which consists of 146 houses that were built on an infill-basis at a cost of R17 million on various sites in the KwaNonqaba area, initially struggled to get off the ground until the community contacted the Municipality for assistance. Within six months after the Municipality became involved, the funding was allocated, the top structures were designed and the material component was procured from major material suppliers.

 The beneficiaries also wanted to get away from the conventional top structures that are normally built on such projects. The result was houses with concrete tile roofs as well as additional features such as vinyl floor covering, mixer taps, splash-back tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, a kitchen sink cabinet, aluminium awning at the entrance door, a geyser and high specification internal and external light fittings.

All the contractors, sub-contractors and labourers were selected out of the community. Ten local ward-based contractors were appointed to construct the houses. All received NHBRC training and further in-service training during the construction process. All are now also registered with the NHBRC.

A major feature of the project was the good communication and co-operation between the community and the Municipality.

In addition to the training that the contractors received, 150 direct jobs were also created.
