Anderson Provides Shelters for Children

Hans Coertse (Managing Member of Anderson Engineering), Mr Basil Manual (Principal), Mr Jasson (former Vice Principal now Principal of Woodlands Primary) of Forest Hill Primary School) and Trevor Govender (Anderson Engineering)

Early in March 2010, Anderson Engineering identified the need for waiting shelters for school children at two schools in close proximity to our premises. In working with the schools, the waiting shelters were designed primarily to provide protection from the elements as many of the school children commute and have to wait for public transport. However, the location of the shelters allows them to be used for other purposes, eg: a seating area during meals or breaks.

By September the concrete slabs were laid and the structures were being progressed in the workshop. The manufacturing process took a little longer than we hoped as we juggled deliveries of client projects with our desire to assist the local community.

The structures are now installed at the Forest Hill and Woodlands Primary Schools respectively. Each structure provides shelter for up to 150 children. The principals of both schools expressed their gratitude to the team at Anderson and in return Hans Coertse, our Managing Member reiterated how good it felt to be in a position to assist the local community.
