Level 2 BEE status acquired for Glass Rite 2017 / 18

The final draft for gazetting of the Amended Construction Sector B-BBEE Codes has been released. There are various interesting changes that will impact heavily on company’s B-BBEE strategies going forward.

The big changes come in Section 4.2 where an Exempt Micro Enterprise is deemed to have the following B-BBEE status Level:

 If less than 30% Black Owned then “Level Five Contributor” having a B-BBEE recognition level of 80%

 If 30% Black Owned then “Level Four Contributor” having a B-BBEE recognition level of 100%

 If 51% Black Owned then “Level Two Contributor” having a B-BBEE recognition level of 125%

 If 100% Black Owned then “Level One Contributor” having a B-BBEE recognition level of 135%

The benefits of BEE status include being able to apply for tenders with government bodies as well as purchasing of state-owned assets or entering into public-private partnerships.

Preferential procurement is another benefit that can affect the entire supply chain a company with good BEE standing is connected to.

Adhering to BEE acts and codes ensures a business can truly thrive in today’s economy, never missing opportunities to grow and gain more business, even from non-compliant competitors.

Glass Rite is proud to be a Level 2 B-BBEE Contributor for the period between 12 October 2017 to 11 October 2018.

Glass Rite is proud to announce that the company now employs two qualified CPG-2 specialists in our Draughting & Estimations department: Sibonelo Mantengu & the recently qualified Emma-Lize Steyn.

Glass can be dangerous and temperamental and needs to be handled with knowledge and care by professionally qualified people to ensures optimal safety and success on all projects, upholding the standards and objectives of the industry to guarantee the quality and workmanship.

As a qualified Competent Person – Glazing Category 2 (CPG-2) both Sibonelo and Emma-Lize are members of South African Glass Institute (SAGI). With CPG-2 qualified personnel Glass Rite is able to design according to SANS 10400 regulations. All technical drawings are then handed to a CPG-1 (mentor) for approval.

Did you know - with any new building, commercial or private, all glass installations must be certified before the building can be occupied or inhabited.

If your building’s or home’s glass is not certified you may have a serious problem should anybody be injured by the glass, resulting in a criminal law suit or even jail time.

It does unfortunately happen that installers, not qualified to issue these certificates, are used by the unsuspecting public and can lead to a great deal of frustration.

Rather than taking the chance, Glass Rite is an accredited installer and can certify all of our installations, so save yourself from unnecessary stress, legal cases and costs by using Glass Rite for your next glass and aluminium project.

Is your glass up to code and certified?
