Projects: N2 Gateway

Successfully wiring over 7800 houses under the most challenging conditions


Citrine Construction was the turnkey electrification partner in a joint venture to bid for the City of Cape Town’s tender for the construction of 20 000 low cost homes along the N2 Gateway. In 2004, Sobambisana Community Property Developments (Pty) Ltd was awarded the contract to build 11 000 of these homes. Citrine took up the management and installation of the electrical works, including reticulation works, internals and service connections.


Citrine, working alongside Sobambisana, has provided the electrical works for the heating and lighting of almost 80% of the to-date more than 10 000 homes that have been handed over to the people of the Western Cape.
