LafargeHolcim Tanzania is supplying Tembo cement for the construction of a new hospital. The Wanging’ombe District Hospital is currently being built under the supervision of the district engineer. Tembo SupaSet is being used to construct the foundations of the new healthcare facility.
The Wanging’ombe District Hospital is located in Wanging’ombe – one of six districts in the Njombe region. Wanging’ombe is located 130 km east of Mbeya, where the headquarters of Tembo cement is located. Around 90 percent of the entire Njombe region is rural, which means that this district hospital will provide healthcare for Tanzanian residents from a wide area.
Local contractors, architects and engineers are also involved in the construction of the district hospital. This project has created numerous employment opportunities for the residents in the surrounding areas. Hospitals such as this one are vital for the health and treatment of patients in remote areas of Tanzania.
Tembo SupaSet is a class 42.5N Portland pozzolana cement that has been developed to suit mass-concrete projects. It is a strong and durable building material that is perfect for foundations that need to bear weight for heavy structures.
