Nejeni Construction and Project Management (Pty) Ltd
Emergency repairs

Aging infrastructure, poor quality of the existing materials, ground movement, inefficiencies in the pipe network and human disregard, all add to the ever frustrating need by the local municipal entities to undertake emergency repairs on their existing systems. Typical emergency repairs can be as deep as 6m or more where gravity fed systems are blocked or collapsed (infrastructure failure). Pipe bursts as a result of excessive pressures, poor pipe materials and/or aging infrastructure are also commonplace. Nejeni have very well equipped teams that are able to respond at any time of day or night to emergency requests (sewerage collapses, blocked infrastructure, pipe bursts, road collapses/settlement) by the local municipal entity or private enterprise.

Emergency repairs which occur on infrastructure which is reasonably deep beneath the surface, requires proper shoring methods to ensure the safety of the operating teams as well as prevention of unnecessary further disruption to any possible pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Emergency repairs can be classified in categories varying from minor to major, each requiring a specialist approach to ensure that the service that has been disrupted is restored within a reasonably acceptable time. Nejeni’s resourceful operational teams are more than capable and adept and have proven their worth in extreme emergency circumstances, preventing huge health risk catastrophes.
