A selection of current GPB projects

Design and project management of 16 Controlled Atmosphere (CA) cold stores. These cold stores are designed with state of the art carbon dioxide scrubbers, nitrogen generators, electronic monitoring system and gas sampling system. All completed within the time frame of 6 months, including earthworks and demolition of an existing building.

Building in final phase of completion

First phase of implementation of a facilities masterplan for a fruit packing and cold storage company. This entails the expansion and upgrading of the existing fruit packing and cold storage facilities.

The upgrading of the packing equipment includes the largest electronic sizer ever built in South Africa. The sizer has 12 lanes and 51 drops and allows for simultaneous packing or re-binning of fruit to demand feed belts. The demand feed belts have redesigned frames to facilitate the filling of small polythene bagged fruit or traditional cartonned fruit. The equipment layout design allows for wet and/or dry rebinning of fruit. A 5m long singulator makes provision for colour and diameter sorting/sizing of fruit as well as sweetness and ripeness testing.
