Speedspace have been operating in the modular industry for over 50 years, and we appreciate what it takes to remain in operation for many decades. That is why we have a unique connection to miners and the mining industry, as many of those companies are long-standing success stories in the industry.
The mining of gold in South Africa began in Barberton. Barberton, known as the ‘Daisy Town’, was named after Henry Barber on 24 July 1884 by the Gold Commissioner David Walson, after Barber and his cousin Fred discovered gold in the Area.
Today, the town has four gold mines that are more than 100 years old and still in use. It was no surprise then when the oldest gold miners in South Africa reached out to Speedspace seeking a prefabricated modular ablution solution for a particularly challenging location.
The brief was for a high-quality well-finished change house to be constructed and installed at the top of the mountain, with very limited access for large trucks.
Speedspace’s diverse and proven products offered a suitable solution and the modular cabins and prefabricated parkhome products were proposed as the best-suited solution to cater to the unique challenges involved.
Less than two months later, 260sqm change houses were supplied, delivered and assembled. The accompanying video shows a mini-tour of the completed change house.
When experience and innovation meet, quality solutions will always follow! Speedspace, the space you need without the wait!
