Steve Biko Substation
Kuhle Quality Projects, a locally owned and managed construction company, has been appointed to build the Steve Biko Substation. It is envisioned that the substation will increase the electrification capacity for future projects in the Khayelitsha Business District.
KCT CaresThe existing KCT Mall has always maintained direct engagements with key community stakeholders like the Khayelitsha Development Forum (KDF) and Khayelitsha Business Forum (KBF) for purposes of ensuring that Khayelitsha-based entrepreneurs are able to benefit from procurement opportunities. KCT is proud to mention that since the facilities management function has been brought in-house, a number of contracting opportunities have been awarded to local service providers, e.g. cleaning, security, waste management and pest control; these are multi-year contracts worth millions of rands. On maintenance and repair works, we can report that 100% of this work amounting to approximately R6 million has been awarded to Khayelitsha-based contractors during the 2015/16 financial year alone.
