Kigali’s first centralised sewerage system is driven by an ambitious city masterplan designed to position Kigali as a strategic hub for modern service industries in Africa. Rwanda’s rapid economic development and socio-political reform means that the institutional, economic and technical conditions surrounding engineering projects are complex and in a constant state of flux.
Our experience makes us a trusted source for integrated feasibility analysis projects. This, combined with regular work with International Financial Institution clients allows us to translate the details of local context into actionable analysis, which directly addresses the priorities of ours clients.
Atkins Acuity assembled a team of local and international experts to assess this context and provide focussed advice on material areas of risk as well as solutions to militate against them. These included:
Our ability to mobilise the right team meant that Atkins Acuity offered a bled of international and local expertise. We take care in selecting the right experts for the project. In additional to three experts, we coordinated inputs from Rwandan academic researchers and its own in-house GIS and technical design experts. We were able to understand the project in terms of desired outcomes rather than targets and deliverables. Where we saw significant risks or possible efficiency gains, we communicated these to our client. Examples in Kigali include our exploration of alternative areas for sewerage network coverage, and its combination with community lead sanitation programs.
