President’s Comment

2020: A time for reflection, renewal and regeneration South Africa once again finds itself in the throes of a new era of change and with it a sense that we’re entering uncharted waters. It’s our role as CESA to help navigate this process within the infrastructure space.


resident Cyril Ramaphosa has reiterated that building a capable state is one of his core mandates in 2020. That’s an absolute imperative given the condition of public entities in general, as highlighted by recent Auditor-General reports on declining municipal and SOE performance. Within the construction sector, both the consulting engineering and contractor segments have felt the knock-on effects, as project awards become scarcer and payment periods extend beyond 90 days. As CESA, we are committed to working with all industry stakeholders, particularly government leaders, to provide practical solutions to securing and executing public works. Bridging the skills gap Among the most immediate benefits that CESA members can provide are the skills and experience to assist public entities that lack in-house engineering and project management capabilities. Unless addressed, more stringent audit processes could have an unexpected outcome, discouraging senior officials from making key decisions if they stand to be held personally liable for poor outcomes. Compounding the issue is the constant change in regulations. For example, the long-awaited Procurement Bill has just been issued for public comment, and the process of finalising and adopting a new procurement regime may add uncertainty and delays in project implementation. We believe the owner’s engineer concept needs to be embraced as a short-term intervention, as well as secondments from the private sector, to boost public capacity.

Sugen Pillay, President, CESA

CESA members are also willing to volunteer some of their services, within a structured framework, to unlock project opportunities. Furthermore, the Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Directorate in The Presidency needs to be further capacitated so that it can facilitate intergovernmental dialogue when stumbling blocks regarding the interpretation of regulations are encountered. There is often no appreciation for the construction contracts that govern the client-contractor relationship, and the interpretation of regulations tends to be in conflict with these contracts. IPPs and Infrastructure Fund CESA is also calling for the Independent Power Producers (IPP) programme to be restarted, especially the fifth round of bidding on the renewables programme. In addition to its value as a short-term energy crisis intervention, new IPP roll-outs will create much needed project opportunities. The mobilisation of government’s Infrastructure Fund is also eagerly awaited, as is the anticipated role of The Presidency’s Infrastructure and Investment Office in unlocking and regulating funding opportunities. Ongoing imperatives CESA will continue to support government’s transformation objectives, including meaningful and lasting Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment but we need a common vision, a clearly defined regulatory framework, and bankable projects as well. Approximately 60% of CESA member firms are now majority black-owned, approximately 14% have blackwoman ownership greater than 30%, and as a broad-based measure, in excess of 60% either have a Level 1 or 2 rating. CESA will also continue lobbying for the concept of ‘value for money’, particularly in the procurement of professional services, through a ‘quality cost-based selection’ approach. Government’s framework is in place. How it’s implemented will depend on meaningful public and private sector engagement. This Indaba forms part of that process. It’s a meeting of the minds that will help shape our destiny as an industry.

CEO’s Comment

Welcome to the CESA 2020 Indaba


s we convene the two-day CESA Infrastructure Indaba here in Stellenbosch, to reflect on engineering and infrastructure challenges facing the industry, we cannot escape the fact that this important gathering comes at a time when the South African political discourse continues to have a negative bearing on the economy. State-owned entities are struggling and our economic outlook is beyond pedestrian. Yet we remain optimistic that under the leadership of President Cyril Ramaphosa, we will gradually see the light of the ‘New Dawn’ that he has promised. Under the theme ‘Engineering the Future Now!’, the Indaba is a platform to ensure broader participation of all the role players involved in infrastructure development in our country. Our key objective is to ensure that a frank conversation takes place between the public sector and all other role players on how best to develop our country’s infrastructure. We also wish to reiterate that the CESA Infrastructure Indaba is the tripartite dialogue that reaffirms the partnership between the consulting engineers, contractors and clients working together to ensure that lasting infrastructure is developed for the future. It is paramount to focus on issues that will influence the implementation of the infrastructure component of the National Development Plan, which we need to get back on track if we are to realise some of the economic growth it intended to yield by 2030. No doubt we will need a review and refresh following the lost decade and the lost fortunes meant for this purpose. Simultaneously, we should continue to support the embedment of best practice procurement and governance in the catch-up process of infrastructure development. Equally important is ensuring that we

drive the value-for-money proposition while supporting the transformation goals established in the Construction Sector Scorecard, which has been in existence for two years now. Embracing the challenges As consulting engineers, we must build on our strengths and use the social dialogue experience to forge a stronger partnership based on trust between our industry, the broader business community and government. We must also work together towards removing the obstacles that hamper infrastructure development where these are within our direct control. Accelerating the roll-out of infrastructure is key to: • creating sustainable jobs • promoting inclusive growth • increasing investment •p ushing back the frontiers of poverty. It is against this background that I invite all of you to look beyond the current malaise and cast your eyes on the future. If we do so together, we can achieve what many consider to be the unachievable.

CESA Youth Best Practice Seminars: Leadership and Management

This series of one-day seminars, initiated by CESA in 2019, is aimed specifically at closing skills gaps in the engineering environment through empowering our youth. Underlying the reach for the seminars is the philosophy that sharing of unique experiences by senior consulting engineers will result in more informed young professionals who will make informed choices, either to grow within the firm of their employment or to start their own consulting engineering firm.

Three broad topics have been iden�fied as follows, within the seminars to enable different leaders/speakers to relate their own life stories and exper�se coupled with best prac�ces and volunteerism: Engineering, Business and Entrepreneurship Engineering and Career Op�ons Young Professionals Forum (YPF)

CESA Infrastructure Indaba 2020

Your Water Filtration Solution The Dynasand Continuous flow filter is a well proven technology augmented by the latest water filtration innovations consisting of an Open Vessel with low head. Water can be pumped into the system, or should the location allow, be fed by gravity.

It runs by simple

operation without any moving parts. In addition, the need for back wash pumps and operations is eliminated. Only air is added to the air lift pump, resulting in a highly reliable and consistent filtration quality. There is no “first filtrate” and there is no filtration interruption for back-washing.

Continuous Contact filtration occurs,

and no pre-sedimentation is required where incoming flows have a turbidity of up to 60 NTU for potable water. Footprint is also reduced by up to 50%, due to the higher capacity per unit of filter area.
