Community Build Gugulethu
UCT Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment.
We had the privilege of upgrading a school for the disabled in Gugulethu. Tembaletu was in serious need of refurbishment and some care to make the school appealing and safe for the students. My team on site was involved in refurbishing the public toilet areas. We stripped the old tiles from the floor, and applied a new coat of paint to the floor. We chipped all the old paint from the walls and applied new paint to the walls, as well as adding some nice colours to separate the boys toilets from the girls. Finally any broken sanitary appliances were replaced, and new disabled hand rails were installed to ensure easy use of the bathrooms for students who struggled severely.
