Cummins has announced that it has relocated to new premises in the Allandale Building in Waterfall City, Midrand, in close proximity to the Mall of Africa development. The relocation is due to the fact that the company’s success on the continent has led to a healthy and growing organisation that now requires expanded facilities.

The Kariba South Extension Project on the Zambezi River is 85% complete, and is on track for completion in March 2018, reports Hatch, the Owner’s Engineer on the massive project.

Social writer Eric Hoffer wrote “In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists”, a quote that resonates with Denver Dreyer, CEO of WorleyParsons RSA. As a company that helps customers meet the world’s changing resources and energy needs, WorleyParsons understands the need for agility and developing new solutions to ever-changing challenges. The company delivers projects and provides expertise in engineering, procurement and construction management across the full asset lifecycle in the hydrocarbons, infrastructure, minerals, metals and chemicals sectors.

Construction World’s Best Projects Awards is the only award that recognises excellence across the entire built environment – from contractors (civils, general builders and specialist), to suppliers to professional services (architects, consulting engineers etc). It also recognises excellence in sustainable construction, and was one of the first awards in South Africa for green building.

In a welcome development, Pareto Limited shopping centres have won both of the South African shopping centre industry’s highest accolades – the 2017 Spectrum Award for Retail Development and Design and the 2017 Spectrum Award for Shopping Centre Marketing.

The opening line ‘ Three guys walk in to a bar ...’ has fuelled the material of comedians from Lenny Bruce to Jerry Lewis. For a surfer, a gamer and an engineer, it plays on our notions of stereotypes of beach bums, computer nerds and analytical types and we are waiting for a punch line that ridicules at least one if not all three.
