Mercedes Benz awards design & construct of logistics building to Stefanutti Stocks

posted on

Two of Stefanutti Stocks Building’s divisions (KwaZulu-Natal and East London) have begun working on the design and construction project (turnkey) for Mercedes Benz South Africa (MBSA). The East London-based project was awarded to Stefanutti Stocks and its design consultants AECOM, as a fixed price contract, with Stefanutti Stocks undertaking the full package. 

The contract, in joint venture with Axsys and Botani Construction, runs from March 2017 through to June 2018, and the first milestone was met mid-March, with the submission of design drawings to the Buffalo City Council for building plan approval.

Stefanutti Stocks has enjoyed a long relationship with the motor trade that has seen the group constructing facilities for a number of well-known vehicle brands. These facilities range from production facilities, body shops and parts warehouses all the way through to showrooms. “We have previously built a body shop for Mercedes Benz South Africa in East London, and are looking forward to further cementing our relationship with MBSA together with our partners AECOM, by delivering a world-class logistics facility,” says John Dorning, managing director of Stefanutti Stocks Building KZN.

“Our commencement on site has started with our crews breaking ground on 6 April 2017, and with most of the design concluded, it’s now up to us to construct – our main objective is to be a solution for MBSA,” Dorning concludes.
