The installations on the Sandton site had a few unusual issues like unloading onto a dirt patch and manually having to move equipment from the truck to loading bay.
The equipment for the 5th floor was hoisted up to the Terrace area on the 5th floor as there were no lifts on site, and then carried to its final position in the kitchen.
The installation in Sky CPT was also prone to difficulties due to the kitchen being on the 25th and 26th floor of the hotel. Again the lifts on site were too small, so the equipment was hoisted to the top of the building and lowered through a hole cut in the roof to the 27th floor and then carried down one flight of stairs by hand.
The Cape Town Hotel is still being completed with expected opening date of 2021.
Herewith the progress so far:
The projects for both Sandton and Cape Town were designed and carried out via our agent Complete Restaurant Solutions (CRS) which is headed up by John Malamglou.
