Ninety-five-year -old Knight Piésold is a Level 2 BBBEE company that places emphasis on staff training, which has helped it to secure several lucrative tenders.

Knight Piésold has been involved with numerous large-scale projects, many of which have been for the South African Roads Agency Limited (Sanral). In fact, Sanral projects account for about 70% of the work the company has done. With a focus predominantly in the northern parts of the country, the company has completed several projects for the provincial governments of Mpumalanga, Gauteng and Limpopo.

In terms of municipal infrastructure, Knight Piésold has also been responsible for the upgrading of the Rosherville Road in City Deep, which is an important part of the city’s inland port, as it accommodates large volumes of heavy trucks.

Knight Piésold was tasked with widening the 1.6 km road, which is owned by the Johannesburg Roads Agency (JRA). Sanral, however, was appointed as the implementing agent and brought in to carry out the project. Work on the road involved in situ recycling of the existing road to a depth of 180 mm, placing a bitumentreated base over it and incorporating a 45 mm asphalt wearing course. Rosherville Road’s lighting had to be moved and service relocations had to be performed. Full access management was also provided at the properties.
