Thatchscapes was recently employed by Umoya Energy (Pty) Ltd to build a small information centre next to the Hopefield Wind Farm in the Western Cape. This centre will give the public the opportunity to stop right next to the massive wind turbines to learn more about what they do and how they function. We are also in talks about building Thatch lapas for them as well.
Our expert team took only 3 days to complete the project. Lath panelling was installed on two sides of the structure where information boards will be displayed. This 66 MW Hopefield Wind Farm has achieved its commercial operation date. Construction on the project, which comprises 37 wind turbines, began in late 2012, having been identified as a preferred project during the Department of Energy’s first Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme bid window.
The wind farm was completed on time and budget and will generate enough electricity to power about 70 000 low-income homes, or 29 000 medium-income homes. Thatchscapes is proud to have been part of this project by giving the public a chance to learn more about this renewable energy source.
Custom-designed thatch roofs
We make sure our respected customers get what they want exactly. Instead of a traditional thatch roof section, we built it in a new installation at a customer’s home instead of a cover for an exterior staircase and improved the overall beauty of the house.
Our architects and building departments operate seamlessly together to ensure practical and appropriate structural perfection. Even if we face desperate demands or challenges, we do our utmost to establish an innovative and feasible solution.
Quality Thatch Lapas
Thatched lapas have become a very popular and practical addition to people’s homes, especially when you have a pool. When the summer season swings in, the blistering sunshine needs a much-required cover. More and more individuals look forward to having a thatched Lapa.
As a thatched Lapa roof customer, we know that you will be pleased with your newly constructed Lapa, which will offer a whole new look to your backyard and make it so much easier to relax next to the pool. We have constructed so many thatched lapas over the last couple of years, each of which was specially planned and crafted according to the needs and requirements of our customers.
Thatchscapes is proud of delivering quality workmanship, guaranteeing that our respected customers achieve the results. If you want to see examples of any of our lapas through the years, browse through our website.
