Developing construction projects for townships is the speciality of François N. Bakkes.
The company Kwa Mhlanga Construction (PTY) LTD in Ruimsig near Johannesburg has a reputation for innovation and reliability. Their Operations Director François N. Bakkes often looks after up to ten construction sites at one time.
François N. Bakkes operates with high personnel and machine costs, with 80 tampers in his plant fleet. But coordination is difficult, for example when up to ten workers with tampers are in a trench, where the need for coordination slows progress, making consistent compaction quality difficult to achieve.
