KBAC Flooring won two awards this year for their role in the new Sasol head office building in Sandton. The company received the “Best-Subcontractor without Established Site” for the second time by the Master Builders Association (MBA) at the North annual Health & Safety Awards as well as the MBA accolade for its attention to safety requirements during the supply and installation of the carpets.
Interface, the world’s leading modular floor supplier, also awarded KBAC Flooring for its “persistent and determined” efforts to meet the complex flooring requirements for the Sasol head office building project. KBAC Flooring is the sole South African distributor of Interface flooring which was specified for the futuristic 10-storey building in Katherine Street, Wierda Valley, by the project’s interior designers, Paragon Interface.
KBAC’s Health and Safety Co-ordinator, Louise Ross, says that one of the challenges KBAC had to overcome during the Sasol head office building project was the presence of several other sub-contractors working on site simultaneously, resulting in the KBAC installers having to contend with a mix of trades on each phase of the project.
“As a result, the safety risks faced by all workers changed constantly and it was imperative that our employees adhered to safe working practices to avoid potential safety hazards. KBAC’s dedicated installation fitting team, under the guidance of Senior Project Manager, Werner Gouws, managed to do this and maintain a continuous flow of work: from the loading of material at the KBAC warehouse in Linbro Business Park, to hoisting, stacking and storage on site, and final installation,” says Louise.
In addition to the safety award, KBAC’s Sasol supply project leader, Lesley Fidrmuc, accepted Interface’s “Best Won Sales Project Trophy for 2015” for Interface’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region on behalf of KBAC at a meeting in Portugal earlier this year.
