     end of 2007 UWP looks back on a very
     busy and rewarding year - and all
indications are that 2008 will not be any
different.
I wish to thank all our clients for entrusting
their projects to us and to assure you of our
continued dedication to successfully
meeting your needs in the future.
It is expected that the construction boom
being experienced not only in South Africa,
but also globally, will be sustainable until
2015 +. The fixed investment histogram to
the right clearly shows the trend.
However, every economic cycle has its own
challenges. Given the pressure on scarce
resources, the single biggest challenge we
face is the ability to deliver on-time, quality
products and services to our clients. Our                  UWP's management team gathered recently for its annual strategic
focus is on ensuring that our clients continue             conference
to receive the same value they have become
used to from UWP in the past.
Our BEE partner Contralesa continues to add
value at board level and the UWP manage-
ment team has made substantial progress in
changing the demographics of our company.

Our Pietermaritzburg office is finally moving after more than 20
years at its current address.
UWP has formed a consortium with four other built environment
professionals to purchase a prime site at the new Victoria Country
Club office park. Our new building will be completely designed,
engineered and built by the consortium.
It is currently predicted that the building will be ready for
occupation by June next year. n

Rapid Transit (BRT) system around Ellis

segregated right-of-way bus lanes in the
median area similar to a rail based system.
These BRT routes will have their own
distinctive signage and timetables.

Mthembu West and Mathintha water supply scheme
Dave Wing

UWP Consulting was appointed in early 2006 by uThukela Water
for the preparation of a business plan, design and construction
supervision of the R15.5 million Mthembu West and Mathintha
Water Supply Scheme near Tugela Ferry in KwaZulu-Natal.
The project was split into two phases to be implemented over three
years. Phase 1 includes all the bulk supply and phase 2 the
reticulation networks to public stand taps at 200m walking
distance apart.
Phase 1, completed in July 2007, included construction of water
storage reservoirs, pipework, a pump station and a river crossing.
Phase 2 has recently commenced and will be completed by the end
of 2008. The reticulation is split into three separate supply zones,
each of which will be let as a single contract. The scope of work
includes some 78km of reticulation pipelines, a booster pump
station and an additional reservoir, as well as about 150 public
stand taps. n

UWP benefits from mining boom                                       Rod Stewart

T   he international resources boom and the associated surge
    in both green- and brownfields mining projects have
impacted positively on UWP's workload in the mining sector.
                                                                                   Portal 4 boxcut at Ngezi Mine in Zimbabwe.


We are currently involved in infrastructure provision for 15
mining projects, seven in South Africa, three in Zimbabwe,
two in Zambia, two in Botswana and one in Burkina Faso. In
addition, UWP is likely to start work on new projects in
Tanzania and Mozambique in the near future.
UWP's participation varies from project to project, ranging
from design phase involvement only, to fully fledged EPCM
(engineering, procurement, construction and management).
Our Integrated Construction Unit (ICU) contract
methodology is being used by an expanding number of
clients. The risk attenuation benefits of the ICU approach are
particularly attractive to clients whose ventures are being
undertaken in dynamic project environments.
With the positive outlook for continued growth in the global
resource markets, UWP's prospects in the mining sector
remain bullish. n

 T    he City of Johannesburg is in the process of
      formalising various informal settlements, including
 re-densifying the areas and providing services such as
 roads, water and sanitation.
 The formalisation of a settlement is a lengthy process

 venture with Nyeleti Consulting, was appointed by
 Johannesburg Water to supply basic water and sanitation
 as an interim measure.

I  n 2005 the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry
   (DWAF) commissioned the Outeniqua Coast Water
Situation Study and appointed UWP as the lead consultant to
undertake the work, in association with BKS.
The study area, known as the Outeniqua Coast, covers the
entire coastal belt between the Goukou and Noetzie Rivers
and includes the municipal areas of Hessequa, Mossel Bay,
George and Knysna with a land cover of 7 000 km² and a
population of about 320 000.
Water balance estimates produced at cursory level show a
significant yield shortfall (33 million m3/a). Furthermore, a
number of towns and holiday resorts in the study area are
experiencing serious periodic water shortages and water
restrictions, mainly because of inadequate water sources and
insufficient capacity of bulk supply infrastructure.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the nature and
extent of the water balance problems in the area and to
identify and evaluate possible reconciliation strategies to
alleviate the yield deficit and improve the water supply.
This multi-disciplinary project involves studies in the fields
of agricultural developments, afforestation, surface water
and groundwater hydrology, ecological assessment,
engineering and economic evaluation of water resource
development scenarios (dams, sea water desalination, re-use
of treated effluent, etc), as well as project management and
co-ordination of the activities of a number of specialist sub-
consultants. n

 multidisciplinary study included water demand projections,
 topographical surveys, hydrological analysis, geotechnical, materials and
 sedimentation investigations, as well as engineering studies and
 economic analysis.
 UWP's conclusions reveal that a dam is required to meet present and
 future demand if the ecological reserve is implemented.             The
 recommended development option will consist of a 48 m high composite
 dam wall on the Cwabeni River together with a low level abstraction weir
 across the Mzimkhulu River, sediment exclusion works, a pump station
 and a rising main.
 During the wet season (January to April) water from the Mzimkhulu River
 will be pumped into the off-channel storage dam and during the dry
 season it will be released back into the river in order to augment the
 available low river flows. The capital cost for this development is
 estimated at R 200 million.
 Further studies of the identified dam site have been recommended. n

   UWP has been appointed by
   Zambia Sugar to prepare and
   manage an Integrated
   Construction Unit (ICU) contract
   for the expansion of the
   agricultural infrastructure at its
   Nakambala estate north-west of
   Lusaka.
   The expansion programme, which
   includes the upgrading of the mill,
   will cost more than R1.2 billion
   and will see Zambia become the
   second biggest producer of sugar
   in Africa.
   Under the experienced eye of
   Gareth McGibbon, our resident
   engineer, the works have got off to
   a good start. The picture shows the

               The Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism is funding a R20-million recreational complex designed
               by UWP and now under development on the banks of the Mthatha Dam in the Eastern Cape.
               The facilities will include chalets, camp sites, a conference centre and chartered boat rides on the Mthatha Dam.
               There will be the opportunity to view small game as the site is in the Luchaba Nature Reserve.
               Mthatha's rich political history will certainly serve as a drawcard for conferences (breakaway venue), as well as
               other recreational activities planned on the site. Qunu, the birth place of former State President Nelson Mandela,
               is less than 30 minutes drive from the new complex, adding further national or even international tourism
               appeal. n

  pricing in consulting, and staff shortages resulting from
  the global construction boom.
