Tender Types that require Consultants

What do Consulting Companies do?

 

According to Wikipedia, a Consulting Firm is “A business of one or more experts (Consultants) that provides professional advice to an individual or an organisation for a fee. The primary purpose of a Consulting Firm is to provide access to industry – specific Specialist / Consultants and subject matter experts”.

 

There are many reasons why businesses appoint Consultants to solve an issue within the Company. Whether it’s because the company wants an unbiased opinion or because it doesn’t have the resources to address the issue internally. Consultants offer a way to problem-solving without costing a fortune.

 

The services provided by Consulting Engineers and other Professional Service providers involve a myriad of services in a range of disciplines and fields. These include, amongst others:

 

  • Civil Engineering Services: Civil Engineering is a Professional Engineering discipline that deals with the Design, Construction and Maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like Roads, Bridges, Canals, Dams and Buildings. Civil Engineering takes place in the public sector from municipal through national governments, and in the private sector from individual homeowners through to international companies.
  • Project Manager: Project Management is the application of Knowledge, Skills, Tools and Techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.

Project Management processes fall into five groups:

  1. Initiating
  2. Planning
  3. Executing
  4. Monitoring and Controlling
  5. Closing
Project Management knowledge draws on ten areas:
  1. Integration
  2. Scope
  3. Time
  4. Cost
  5. Quality
  6. Procurement
  7. Human Resources
  8. Communications
  9. Risk Management
  10. Stake Management

 

  • Electrical Engineering: Electrical Engineering is a field of engineering that generally deals with the study of the application of Electricity, Electronics and Electromagnetism.
  • Geotechnical Engineering: The word “Geotechnical” refers to the geological components of the earth, like the earth and soil and also groundwater. Geotechnical Engineers evaluate the soil and other components of the earth to determine whether a particular project site is a good one for a given project and work with the lay of the land for the best results.
  • Mechanical Engineering: Mechanical Engineering is the branch of an emergency dealing with the Design, Construction and use of systems and machines.
  • Structural Engineering: Structural Engineering is a speciality within Civil Engineering. Structural Engineers create Drawings and Specifications, perform calculations, review the work of other engineers, write reports and evaluations, and observe construction sites.
  • Architectural Engineers: The building industry is made up of several professional groups: Developers, Architects, Engineers and Construction Teams. Architectural Engineers specialize in the technical aspects of architecture, including the structural integrity and resilience of buildings and the comfort and health of those who occupy buildings.

Please see DTA 651061: Multi-Disciplinary Tender Notice as an example for various Consultants needed.

Which Organisations look for Consulting Tenders?

Consulting Tenders will attract Consulting Organisations searching for Consulting Work. E.g. A Development of Municipal Offices – Architect / Quantity Surveyor / Consulting Engineer.

 

According to Michael Kromhout from D W P Civil & Structural Engineers, the Consulting Tenders that they look for are: “Any tenders relating to the Plan, Design and Management of Civil / Structural Projects; including Turnkey Projects”

It’s typical Civil / Structural Projects: Municipal Services (Roads, Sewer, Water), Bulk Services (Reservoirs, Pipelines, Water Treatment Plants, Pump Stations), Buildings, Structural Steel etc

 

To conclude this Blog, Consultancy is a specialised field required for a particular industry/field.

About Lungile Buthelezi

I started working at Leads 2 Business in May 2014 as a Content Researcher in the Daily Tenders South Africa Department. I oversee Eastern Cape and Limpopo Regions.

L2B Blog: CSIR: Who are they and what role do they play in South Africa?

CSIR – Who are they and what role do they play in South Africa?

I was asked to write a blog on the CSIR… Wow – write my own blog? Marvellous, wonderful, yes, indeed!

Then cold reality sets in… Who is CSIR and What on earth do they do…?

I considered the possibility of an underground arm of ‘Crime Scene Investigation’ and with the strains of CSI Miami music playing in the back of my mind (dooooo-waaya, du du du du…) I set off to ask my dear friend, Google.

As reliable as ever, Google responds The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).

  The name itself immediately brings to mind a classroom, full of beakers, Bunsen burners and goggle-eyed students huddled over strange, bubbling liquid concoctions…

maybe I wasn’t so far off, after all!

 

Further investigation reveals the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) was founded in 1945 and is SA’s central and premier scientific research and development organisation based in Pretoria.
Made up of some of the best minds in our country, they work together to translate their research and knowledge into ideas that will help South Africa grow.

 

  Amongst hundreds of projects that the CSIR has contributed to, one that particularly stood out to me was the development of an affordable and durable prosthetic paediatric knee, developed as a cheaper option for kids that are amputees.

 

There are options available for adults, but ended up being very costly and not practical for children – this new prototype is durable and cheaper and due to a motion detector in the device can allow the doctors to even monitor the general health and improvement of the amputees.

 

The genius in this device is that it can measure the pressure inside the socket and prevents sores forming as well as possible further amputation as a result.

A brilliant contribution, but what does this have to do with CONSTRUCTION…?

Well, the CSIR has several divisions within their Building Science and Technology division, namely;

 

Architectural engineering
Here they contribute to better social infrastructure, health and education facilities in South Africa.
Science and engineering methodologies are applied to tackle social infrastructure research questions and develop evidence-based solutions that inform current policy and practice. Solutions are established to support government’s development objectives and to the benefit of industry and civil society

 

Construction industry and innovation
They also undertake research, development and implementation of innovative building technologies that aim at transforming the way we construct buildings. Using principles of green building and sustainability to add to the way we design, construct, operate and maintain buildings. Leading to faster construction cycles, a lower life-cycle cost of buildings, improved product quality and worker safety.
They also explore the use of innovative materials such as green bricks, structural insulated panels, light steel frame and natural fibre composites.

 

Construction materials
Aimed at addressing the problem of slow and costly delivery of housing in South Africa, reducing the high energy and carbon footprint of building materials in a sustainable way, they promote the use of natural fibers for reinforcement, rather than steel, this increases sustainability, creates jobs downstream, promoting agricultural production and resulting in the production of greener building materials.
The group also looks at developing materials for use in industrialized or advanced construction that uses panels or modules made from cheaper and smarter materials to reduce building delivery lead times.

Sounds like an all-around winner to me – no nerdy geeks, just smart people and smarter choices!

In closing, I think the CSIR’s slogan – our future through science – shows that by investing, exploring and ongoing research, they can help shape South Africa’s future and deal with the complex problems facing us today – so it’s not all doom and gloom in the amazing country we call home. These great minds are at work to continually make improvements in our beautiful South Africa.

About Candice Erasmus

I have been working at Leads 2 Business for 10 years of which 8 have been as the Sales Manager. I enjoy every aspect of my job and strive to hold the L2B flag high in all I do.

L2B Blog: Why airconditioning can increase productivity

Productivity depends on several factors. The office temperature being one of many

The air quality and room temperature of an office can profoundly affect the health, comfort and productivity of the occupants

 

When I started off writing this blog, in the early ‘Research & Data Gathering’ phase, I viewed the argument on aircon productivity as hot vs cool – translated as ‘no aircon/hot’ vs ‘with aircon/cool’.

But then, that wonderful ‘ka-ching’ light bulb clicked on, sparking a braincell into an intelligent thought – and the obvious dawned on me. Both sides, hot temp and cool temp equals productivity. It is not the one vs the other, but rather the 2 temps working together, balancing one another, to reach any Boss-Man’s desired fate, in creating a productive environment – a function that only an air-conditioning system can provide.

 

The obvious: Don’t forget, an aircon swings both ways – temperature wise of course. ‘Ka-ching’ light bulb

And here we have it [further down]. Studies supporting both temperatures. Highlighting how and why air-conditioning increases productivity.

We cannot control and manipulate the weather into our favour to increase productivity. This is why we have aircons, right?
# The Top Secret purpose of air-conditioning in the work environment.

 

The reality of the large impact aircons have on productivity is crystal clear, with no air to spare for denial 😉 wink wink

With the control and balancing of office temp, we create a happy and healthy environment, allowing productivity to boom and to ensure that productivity remains at optimal levels

 

Definition:

Air-conditioning is a process that alters the properties of air to more favourable conditions.

That in itself says it all. Altering the properties of air to more favourable conditions. Favourable being the key word, a positive word, and positive sounds productive, does it not?

‘Interpretation: “Air-conditioning is a process that alters the properties of air to more Productive conditions” 

With that said, it’s all about context, and context coupled with common sense will steer you in the right temperature!

My Air-con Philosophy: No sweat equals LESS Stress ladies and gents

 

SUMMURY: Part 1 – In Summer:

Yes please, Mr Aircon Buddy – do grace us with your Fresh Breath of Cool Air.

Make a hot office, bearable, cool the irritable into productive moods

 

But BEWARE of Igloo Temperatures!

Let’s not fall prey to illness, which then leads to grumpy moods and absenteeism, decreasing productivity, faster than the rand falls!

SUMMARY: Part 2 – In Winter:
I’m sure, more so than none, will happily invite the cozy aura of an aircon, rather than chattering teeth in an office sized fridge!
The air-con will warm our cheeks to a rosy pink, and switch our body temperature to ninja working mode! HELLO PRODUCTIVITY

 

PS. Be sure to take note of the flip side! Too hot will cause laziness as well as sleepiness! It’s a science, you know

Closing Statement: Air-conditioning helps us to control and balance the office temperatures – creating a happy and healthy environment, allowing productivity to boom, and to ensure that productivity remains at an optimal level.

Conclusion: Air-Conditioning is an Investment, not an expense!

 

Survey & Study results:

Velux.com states that an office with good indoor air quality improves productivity by 10%. A number of scientific studies indicate that elevated temperatures and poor air quality can negatively affect work performance. [Pawel Wargocki and David P. Wyon : Indoor Climate Scientist –  Technical University of Denmark]

In a 2004 study, Corner University psychological scientist – Alan Hedge, determined that workers are more efficient when they’re warm.
As per APS.org, cold offices link to lower productivity. While blasting the aircon, running up those energy bills, you are also running up the cost of lost worker productivity [colds and absenteeism from work]

A NASA Study concluded that an office temp that is too high (too hot) decreases productivity, with 18% loss in work done, and 40% loss in accuracy

In a Study conducted by Cornell University, it was found that an office that is too cold, increases work errors by 44%, which in turn increases the labour cost by 10%

Talks about this project have been going on since 2008, when the project was first captured on the L2B Website.

It has created thousands of jobs as the work included nine major bridges and three interchange bridges. The project also includes two mega-bridges across the Msikaba and Mtentu river gorges at a cost of R1.2-billion and R1.3 billion respectively.

 

What this all looked like before the works:

Which justifies why this was the most controversial subjects and most popular as it was famous for its unspoilt and untouched natural surroundings

 

As we all know Construction works are carried out in the form of projects. Projects are becoming progressively larger and more complex in terms of physical size and cost. In the modern world, the execution of a project requires the management of scarce resources; manpower, material, money, and machines to be managed throughout the life of the project – from conception to completion – as per pictures below:

Facts and Benefits:

  • The creation of this new road increased accessibility to the area and thus increased job creation and improved livelihoods
  • It has also served to increase connectivity and logistics between the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal regions.
  • Moreover, the many coastal reserves, whose aims are to educate people and to conserve the natural environment, and serve as tourist attractions, will become more accessible.
  • Overall, on the positive side, it is anticipated that the new N2 road has greatly benefitted the surrounding communities in terms of job creation, infrastructure development and accessibility, which facilitates tourism and related economic opportunities.

Despite the works that have taken place over the years, it is still amazing how the Wild Coast has preserved its originality by keeping and maintaining its tourist attractions:

I often wonder what it would feel like to have that skill?

 

With that in mind, I decided to put some facts together to keep a reminder for myself on how finding business can be an art form I can cultivate….

 

Without further ado ladies and gentleman, please find your creative notes below :

Building Design & Construction: Interesting Buildings & Structures

Over the ages, there have been many buildings and structures built that have an absolutely amazing design. Some of these buildings and structures have withstood the test of time in ways that newer buildings / structures have yet to experience and only time will tell if they will be able to withstand the forces of nature. Today, I am having a look at some of these brilliant buildings and structures that have captured my imagination.

 

  1. Bridge of Eggs, Lima, Peru

Puente de Piedra (the Bridge of Stone), was built around 1610 by the architect. Juan del Corral, and is referred to as the Bridge of Eggs, due to the belief that the mortar was mixed with egg whites as opposed to water. The bridge is still standing today.
