The past legislation led to the result that a large portion of our population did not acquire the skill nor had the opportunity to effectively participate in South Africa's economy and to earn a living. The government created a public works programme to help previously disadvantaged people to learn to acquire skills and to attribute to the economy of South Africa. The objective of this treatise is to identify and improve the currrent way labour intensive projects are handled and managed. The purpose will be to make recommendations to the municipality and their team that are involved in labour intensive projects about how to set construction project objectives, and point out negative aspects of the current and previous projects. Another method is the critical analysis of key factors that made previous projects a success.
