Current Projects

Detailed below are some of the many projects Randcivils is currently working on or has recently completed. Randcivils will at any one time be busy with 30 projects varying in size and complexity.

Boardwalk Casino

The contract for the bulk excavation for the new conference facility at the boardwalk Casino was completed in July 2011. This was the first time we were working with Steffanuti Stocks and a good relationship was established for future ventures. The contract involved the excavation of 110000m3, of which 55000m3 was rock in a period of 60 calendar days! The contract was completed on schedule and had we not had to wait for the lateral support to catch up would have been well ahead. The logistics of moving such a volume in such a short time frame was the biggest challenge and Randcivils has proved that it has the capability. My compliments to the workshop team, Frederick, Daniel and all else involved for a job well done!

We are currently busy with the main contract as subcontractors to Grinaker-LTA where we will be doing the civil site works. The excavation for the bases and preparation for surface beds are complete and finally we are out of the water and out of the ground. We have had a lesson in dealing with groundwater! There are a few additional minor roads contracts we are hoping to secure to make our presence there worthwhile but it is still great to be involved in a job of that magnitude. The contract will use 35000m3 of concrete at about 400m3 per day and you can see the progress daily. Marius is on site capably dealing with LTA’s continual demands.

New TAVCOR premises on William Moffet

In July we started the bulk excavation for the new Tavcor showrooms and service centre on William Moffett. SBT is the main contractor and Tavcor want to move in in about March 2012. The excessive rain at that time and the poor ground conditions forced us to use an ADT to get through the mud! The building is out of the ground now and on track to be completed on time. Robert still has to complete the services and the premix and paved parking area.
