Bigen was appointed by Steyn City Properties (Pty) Ltd to provide the complete scope of professional civil services for the construction of Steyn City, a massive, one-of-a-kind residential estate north of Fourways, Gauteng.
Steyn City is an attractive estate lifestyle concept comprising 8 341 apartments, including 5 155 townhouses and 3 186 city-centre-style apartments; 731 cluster homes; 818 freehold houses situated on 695-4 000m2 stands; 120 retirement village units, a golf course with clubhouse, a gym, soccer pitches, swimming pools, fuel station, fishing lakes, a skate park and an equestrian centre. All of this is set amidst beautiful parks, green belts and water features.
In the first phase, Bigen’s team of engineering and infrastructure development professionals focused on internal civil services such as roads, stormwater, sewerage and water supply infrastructure. Four-lane internal roads link William Nicol Drive with Cedar Road and feature a bridge over the Jukskei River as well as turning circles paved with specially moulded blocks with high concrete strength of 35 MPa.
Upon completion, the bulk sewer upgrade will enable the decommissioning of the existing Beverley and Dainfern pump stations. The pump station, which includes an emergency storage dam, is the largest in the City of Johannesburg, along with that of Zandspruit.
A 30-megalitre rectangular bulk water reservoir on the north-eastern portion of the estate is fed from the new Diepsloot reservoir and supplies Steyn City as well as Dainfern, Dainfern Valley, Dainfern Ridge and parts of Diepsloot.
The project was nominated for a prestigious CESA AON award.
