Kwikspace supplies prefabricated Early Childhood Development Centre in 2 weeks

Written by 
Kwikspace supplied the Early Childhood Development Centre as a complete turnkey project, including fabrication of all classrooms, ablutions and a diner, as well as executed all civils and construction work

Kwikspace supplied a new, completely prefabricated Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centre to a community in greater Cape Town as part of the city’s integrated plan to uplift the community and improve access to services.

The R6.36-million Centre, which, in line with the city’s Social Development and Early Childhood Development Directorate will help formally prepare children for primary schooling, was delivered in two weeks in June 2018 using prefabricated building technologies from Kwikspace.

Supplied as a turnkey project covering fabrication, construction, electrical and plumbing works, the new ECD Centre consists of seven classrooms, two ablution units and a kitchen diner – delivered through Kwikspace’s single wide and double wide park homes – together with a play area and AstroTurf soccer field with a Social Hub unit.

With high-quality 40-mm steel clad (Aluzinc ZA150) panels filled with polyurethane at approximately 36 kg/m3, Kwikspace’s Agrément-certified park homes provide fast and cost-effective space, with excellent thermal and strength properties ensuring a minimum lifespan of 20 years for these relocatable structures

As part of the tender agreement, Kwikspace employed local community members, which included all technical and safety-related training, to execute the erection of the prefabricated facility.

Over 150 000 learners in South Africa are currently accommodated in modular classrooms supplied by Kwikspace.
