A BETTER LIFE FOR ALL

Everything we do is guided by our belief that the goal of civil engineering is to serve the community and act as a catalyst for social development. We derive great satisfaction from the fact that we are actively working to help make the world a better place. This is how we see our role in society:

1

To provide engineering infrastructure that successfully transforms the built environment into one that supports human development

2

To initiate empowerment opportunities that change the face of the built environment

3

To play an effective role in stimulating the economy and increasing the country’s GDP

4

To practice integrity, fair dealing, tolerance and respect and to uphold devotion to the standards and the dignity of our profession

HOUSING AND HUMAN SETTLEMENTS

“There shall be houses, security and comfort. All people shall have the right to live where they choose, be decently housed, and to bring up their families in comfort and security.”

 

The Freedom Charter. In 2005 the Government estimated the housing backlog to be at 2,4-million households. Serious delays in affordable housing projects have prompted the Government to consider implementing drastic changes to the laws governing housing delivery, with the aim of removing certain identified bottle-necks.

SCIP prides itself on its ability to provide a comprehensive, quality project management and engineering design service, specifically to address South Africa’s housing and human settlement need.

INFRASTRUCTURE FOR THE MEAT INDUSTRY

SCIP Engineering Group in association with van Vliet de Wet and Partners, offer mechanical, structural and civil consulting engineering services specializing in abattoirs, meat processing facilities and allied projects. The Senior Engineers of the firm have for the last 40 years been intimately involved in the design and supervision during construction of plants and equipment for the meat industry. Their experience covers all aspects of abattoir and meat processing facilities, both locally and internationally.

 

The Senior Engineers were responsible for the planning and supervision work during construction of many new abattoirs. These abattoirs range in size from the small rural facilities to some of the largest abattoirs in the country. A number of these abattoirs have been designed to comply with the stringent European Union export standards. They also include the design of slaughter facilities complying with Halaal and Kosher ritual requirements. The firm also has extensive experience in up-grading existing plants to improve throughput and to optimise the use of existing facilities.

 

The partners have been involved in more than 90 abattoirs and meat processing facilities.
