Kijabe Hospital Sanitation Project - Commissioning October 2015
 

Inside infrastructure is pleased to provide continued support to the community of Kijabe. Alfonso Perez, Tim Kilgariff and Karen Cox have been instrumental in donating significant amounts of time in the design and construction of new wastewater treatment facilities for the Kijabe Hospital.  The project has assisted the community in the development of a fully functioning, environmentally friendly, engineering solution to treat Kijabe Hospital's raw effluent.

The work has ensured that nearby villages are no longer worried about the threat of effluent cross-contamination to local village water supplies.

Greenhill Water Supply - Water Scheme Project

Greenhill Water Supply Co Ltd (GWS) is a community-owned not-for-profit company established in response to the Ash Wednesday fires to provide reticulated water to the suburb of Greenhill, South Australia. A critical function is to supply water for bushfire fighting, both via hydrants and topping up rainwater tanks at all connected homes. The water is not treated and is classified as non-potable. 

Inside Infrastructure assisted GWS by:

  • Assessing the condition and performance of the assets, including the bore, pumping station, concrete tank and reticulation mains
  • Reviewing options for system improvements, including costed alternatives for the supply of potable water
  • Advising on groundwater abstraction licence arrangements.

Kijabe Hospital Infrastructure Upgrade 2013

Kijabe Hospital is a non-profit hospital located in Kijabe, Kenya.  Kijabe is located within the Rift Valley escarpment, in a rural area located about 60 kilometres northwest of Nairobi.  The Hospital provides high quality health care by treating any patient, regardless of social status or ability to pay and is funded entirely by donations and hospital fees charged to patients who can afford them.  At the present time, it has 265 in-patient beds, serves 100,000 out-patients per year, and performs over 9,000 surgical procedures annually.

The condition of hospital infrastructure was failing, and the hospital and surrounding community regularly experienced power outages and water shortages.  These basic utilities have a measurable impact on the hospital’s ability to continue to provide medical services. Inside Infrastructure assisted the Kijabe Hospital between 2011 and 2013 by offering an Engineering Advisory Role for the Water Infrastructure Upgrade required by the hospital.
