WSP's engagement with the Gauteng Provincial Road projects and the various developers working on these projects demonstrates the firm's commitment to the local drive for Township Informal and Housing Developments (TIH). These projects not only create strategic links between previously inaccessible areas but also generate jobs, benefiting socially sensitive and previously disadvantaged communities such as Diepsloot, Sharpeville, and Alexandra.
To enhance transparency and efficiency, WSP uses cloud-based BIM-enabled software, enabling all stakeholders to monitor the project progress in real-time. “Our approach allows developers, contractors, and clients to stay informed about all on-site activities without physically being there, enabled by fully digital construction management environment,” Naidoo explains.
Significantly, these projects are not just about road construction; they are about community building, social welfare and economic growth. Through these infrastructural developments, WSP is contributing to the creation of new communities, providing access to road networks, and fostering economic opportunities. "Everything we do locally adheres to our international best practice standards, particularly regarding sustainability and decarbonisation. This is central to our work," says Naidoo.
