AfriSam has won the contract to supply readymix concrete for the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital.


The Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital in Parktown, Johannesburg, is a non-profit hospital that was a personal dream of late South African president, Nelson Mandela. Construction of the hospital commenced on 23 June 2014, following the successful completion of bulk earthworks and piling on site.

Main contractor Group Five awarded the contract for 17 650m³ of readymix concrete for the hospital to AfriSam.

“It is a wonderful opportunity for AfriSam to contribute to the lasting legacy of the late Nelson Mandela,” said Graham Hannah, multi-products solutions account manager at AfriSam.

The hospital is expected to be completed in 2016 and the 200-bed specialist paediatric hospital will provide services in the fields of haematology/oncology, pulmonology, cardiology, neurosciences, craniofacial, nephrology and general paediatric surgery.

Wits University’s Medical School and other medical facilities are in close proximity to the planned hospital. This will allow for paediatric academic teaching access from Wits Medical School in addition to maximise operational efficiencies and staffing models.
