BRC has long experience. - Free Online Library

BRC Weldmesh Gulf has 35 years of experience in the supply and

fixing of concrete reinforcement solutions for the construction


"As part of our re-engineering process, we have a designing

team that works with French programmes on computers that allow

optimisation of the use of straight bars," a company spokesman

said. "This team, on receiving shop drawings from the client,

prepares bar-bending schedules and supplies straight as well as deformed

re-bars of various shapes and sizes." An important product that the

company offers is welded wire mesh which it manufactures in its Mina

Salman factory. BRC Weldmesh has been making the product since its very

inception. The company also supplies special and standard sheets used in

the construction of bridge culverts. "Erecting security fencing has

become a benchmark for BRC. We offer special panels manufactured and

fabricated in our own workshop," the spokesman said. The company

offers fencing in chainlink, palisade and welded wire mesh designs and

in this connection it has worked on projects related to the Bahrain

Defence Force, ports, electricity boards, private villas and a sports

stadium. Elaborating on the company's production, it said BRC

standard or engineered welded wire mesh of different sizes and special

drawn wires were among the most innovative products it offered. Another

service it offers is fixing steel on site. Trained steel fixers who are

also conversant with civil drawings are available to fix steel and tie

them in accordance to requirements. BRC's steel products have been

used in the construction of bridges, towers, villas and commercial

buildings in Bahrain and other GCC states. Some of the landmark projects

it was involved with are Lulu Abraj Tower, Durrat Al Bahrain, Almoayed

Tower, Bahrain Mall, Sea Star Hotel, Bahrain Financial Harbour, Seef

Tower and Hidd Port. The company was established in 1973 as a joint

venture between the AK Almoayed Group of Bahrain and the UK's Hall

Engineering. "At that time, Hall Engineering was the holding

company of BRC Group although that has since changed and the holding

company is now Acertec Holdings Ltd," it explained.

City of change: New South Africa in old Pretoria

The place is the North Gauteng High Court. The event is the trial of athlete Oscar Pistorius.

"People always ask about Oscar," says Jaco, a local friend who is showing me around Pretoria, one of three cities that South Africa calls a capital.

He points at a mobile cafe opposite the court. "That used to be full of the world's media. The owner had struck gold."

Gold -- the real rather than the metaphorical stuff -- is the blessing and the bane of South Africa.

It's blamed for the 1899-1902 Anglo-Boer War, the fallout from which swept away geographical boundaries and culminated in apartheid.

Garage & Carport Specialists in Johannesburg



Carports are a lot cheaper choice than a garage and are great for storing cars. They can also be used for entertaining. However, carports, due to their open nature, are not as secure as garages. The advantage of a carport over a garage (beside the cheaper cost) is that they can be added onto over time should you need more space. Also you can utilise previous 'dead' space and add great value to your home!

The history of the Hoba Meteorite III: known and loved by all ...

In spite of its remote location in the then little-visited and

almost unknown territory of South-West Africa (Namibia today), we saw

previously (Spargo 2008b) that the second decade of the great

meteorite's life opened with its existence being relatively widely

known to the public in South Africa and the United States. This was as a

result of articles in Die Volksblad (Bloemfontein), The Cape Times (Cape

Town), The Star (Johannesburg) and The New York Times (1). There were

astronomical magazine, which at least alerted German astronomers to its

existence, and the Zeit

RentMyRide Can Save You Money

Hiring a car can be expensive especially when you need to rent a car long term, and sometimes is also a complicated procedure. The established car hire providers have extensive fleets which need maintaining, and the cost of this is passed on to the customer. What if there was a car hire solution that didn't carry such high overheads? For South Africans there is: it's called RentMyRide, and it is an innovative car hire idea that has changed the way people rent vehicles.

RentMyRide uses vehicles that are owned by the public which get little use. These are registered with RentMyRide who then match them with people who need to rent. It's a simple process, and the cost savings are impressive. Also, the owners make money from idle cars, so it's a win-win situation for everyone! For more information on the RentMyRide solution, and how to register as an owner or a renter, visit their website now, and start saving or making money!
