World Cup Stadia Programme Management

SNA Civil and Structural Engineers was contracted by the South African Government’s National Treasury and the Department of Sport to execute the overall Programme Management of the construction phase of all ten the 2010 FIFA World Cup Stadia in South Africa.

The Programme Management entails the following aspects:

  • The oversight of the procurement of Contractors for the construction of the stadia.
  • To ensure that all ten stadia were delivered on time, within the quality requirements set out by FIFA and the South African Government, as well as to oversee the total cash flow process during the construction phase. The cash flow monitoring process included the strict monitoring of the Contractor’s cash flow versus the Contractor’s construction program and payment milestones. Any deviation that could be a risk was highlighted with immediate effect to the relevant Government Departments for action.
  • The monitoring of the programme was linked to an extensive reporting process, both at a high level as well as detailed reporting. The results of this process were to identify risks, cash flow constraints, from both Government as well as the Contractor’s side and to then introduce remedial steps for action to ensure that the risks were eliminated and the process put back on track again.

Public Transport Infrastructure Projects

SNA Civil and Structural Engineers were also contracted by National Treasury to execute the Programme Management for the Public Transport Infrastructure Projects (PTIS), related to the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The PTIS was on national as well as local government level. The purpose of the programme management appointment was to evaluate the PTIS master plans of the Host Cities as well as the expected feasibility and expenditure linked to these projects.

The PTIS Projects were monitored over a prescribed period and projects not in execution at the milestone dates were called off and funds re-allocated to the projects which performed well. This programme saved millions of rand for projects which were tied up or were not feasible or did not get off the ground
