PROJECT UPDATES Lobatse Junction Shopping Centre We are still needing a month to complete phase 1 which is the new taxi rank that is planned for completion by the end of June. We will then need to relocate the existing taxi rank after which the bulk earthworks and building works can start on the shopping centre proper. Spar We were within few weeks of handing over the building to Spar when we had to close down the site so hopefully by mid-June the contractor will get practical completion. We will then be helping Spar to have the refrigeration plant, bakery ovens, meat processing equipment and racking installed in the building. Hopefully, Spar will be able to fully use the facility by the beginning of October. Teemane Retail Park We have an offer from an anchor supermarket and now need to secure the rest of the tenants who have been banging down our doors to sign up for the centre. Based on our current planning, we are hoping to start construction during October 2020. Showgrounds Office Park We have received a really good response to this development and we sold 25% of the development before we even started construction. Our piling contractor could not complete the piles before lockdown and we now need to get them back from South Africa before Sharps Construction can start the building proper. ISSUE 42 - JUNE 2020 7
