Maccaferri Steelgrid, best of the best - Maccaferri Africa

Maccaferri awarded with Special Mention in the category Specialist Supplier for Rockfall Support of Orapa Mine (Botswana).

The prestigious Best Projects Awards by Construction World was held last November at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in Linksfield, Johannesburg.

This year the competition received 51 entries that competed in the seven categories of the awards. Construction World’s Best Projects Awards is the only South Africa award that recognises excellence across the entire construction industry. Best Projects ensures that excellence in the built environment is not only recognised by an entrant’s own institution, but that such excellence also receives wider recognition. Rob Newberry has been a Best Projects judge for 10 years, while Truman Goba has been a judge for the competition for eight years.

AfriSam has been the main sponsor of this event from the start. The awards are independently judged by specialists who represent various professional bodies: Chartered Institute of Building Africa (Rob Newberry), Master Builders of South Africa (Ross Stembridge) and Engineering Council of South Africa (Trueman Goba). Maccaferri has been awarded with Special Mention as Specialist Supplier for Rockfall Support of Orapa Mine AK1 Pit 805 Ramp and North Eastern Ramp (Botswana); Maccaferri installed Steelgrid HR50 as the specified drapery mesh system.

This competition is by submission only. Judging took place on 7 October in Woodmead, Johannesburg. The judges scored entries based on the criteria for each category and these scores were adjusted on a weighted average basis to ensure equitability across all entries. This year it became very clear how important it is for an entrant to address all the criteria. Ross Stembridge, Master Builders KwaZulu-Natal’s building services manager, joined as the third judge.

Entries were judged according to the criteria for each of the categories as set out in the call for entries.

  • A1 (Civil engineering contractors)
