Construction and Site Preparation
The entire construction site has been cleared of trees and been levelled. The internal civil services have been installed and the parking area has been compacted allowing for easier access to the site.
Despite substantial challenges in the form of Covid-19 restrictions and exceptionally high winter rainfall, steady progress has been made with the construction of the Process Facility of which the outer shell is now reaching completion allowing for the internal fitting out to proceed. Several teams are working in unison to install the sophisticated equipment and finishes required to achieve GMP status within the facility. The foundations for the Grow Facility have commenced and should be ready to accept the already delivered steel framework in the near future.
An application has been lodged for the further upgrading of the Eskom power supply to the property and a container housing two back-up generators was delivered to site to ensure that the property will have an adequate supply of power at all times. To secure all the assets on site a secure boundary fence is currently being erected.
NEO PHARM continues to support two local feeding schemes to provide a substantial weekly meal to between 500 and 600 needy individuals, and also to construction workers on site.
This service goes hand in hand with the initiative to provide bibles and religious reading material to cater for both physical and intellectual needs in keeping with NEO PHARM’s philosophy of Compassionate Capitalism.
