COMMUNITY AND LABOUR BASED ELECTRIFICATION
We, as consulting engineers and being part of the business community involved with infrastructure development, can no longer divorce ourselves from the social impact of the services we provide. Traditionally, engineers have merely been interested in the technical and financial aspects of the projects that they have been involved with - getting the most economical design constructed at the lowest cost, in the shortest time and with the best possible quality.

However, our society has become more people-focused, influenced by a new, more democratic constitution and government, more awareness of the plight of the underprivileged, and the start of the Reconstruction and Development Programme.

We at Ballenden & Robb have thus redefined our role as Consulting Engineers and examined how we can play a more meaningful role in this whole process. We believe that the concept of Community-Based Construction is one of the ways in which we can make a contribution to the development of our country and in particular to the development of human resources, skills and the economy within the underprivileged community. By using this concept in electrification projects, the benefit to the community far exceeds the mere provision of electricity. Jobs are being created, skills are being taught and entrepreneurship is given a much needed boost.

Our aim with this overview is to promote this new philosophy of labour and community-based contracting by discussing some of it’s aspects. Addressing issues such as how a project is typically implemented and our experiences to date using this methodology.

DELEGATED MANAGEMENT : ELECTRICAL DISTRIBUTION INDUSTRY (EDI)
Ballenden & Robb have been involved with the electrical infrastructure of Local Authorities over many decades. No wonder then that we have been involved with electrification from the start of the electrification drive in the middle nineties, both with Local Authorities and Eskom. We also have developed the concept of community-based construction for electrification projects (the electrification of the Port Elizabeth townships during 1994/5).

With our knowledge, skills and experience, we can offer you a variety of services to ensure a cost-effective solution to your electrification requirements.
