Who can register a Project Board?
Project Boards© is a dedicated digital platform to map live construction projects and display project information. Only project owners or their proxies may therefore register board information.
How much does it cost and how do I pay?
The cost of hosting your project board information on the site is determined by the construction duration of the project, which will also be the period listed on our site. Currently we offer three options:
Option 1 for R 1 199 - Projects shorter than 6 Months.
Option 2 for R 1 499 - Projects longer than 6 Months and less than 12 Months.
Option 3 for R 699 - Extending a board already listed by another 6 Months.
Once the board information has been submitted, the application will be manually processed. An email will be sent within 48 hours to the registrar (person who made the online application) confirming that the listing is successful / confirming if any additional information is required. Successful listings will be issued with EFT details for the project costing plan they have selected, as well as a project reference number and QR code.
How long does it take to activate my Project Board?
As outlined above, once the board listing has been confirmed as successful, the board will be made live on our site immediately after payment confirmation.
How will site users be able to find my Project Board?
Project Boards© make use of an interactive map on the homepage allowing site users to search for projects on a map. Projects are listed with a dropped pin on their exact location. By clicking on the dropped pin, a user will be able to view a window of the project name, address and a link to the project's unique page which displays the project team board as well as information about the project (Description, Type, Start, Completion and a Project Render). Furthermore, site users will be able to perform a search for the project name, or filter by project owners on the left hand section of the map.
Who is the Project Owner / Developer?
Our site refers to the developer / client / owner as the project owner. It is important to specify this in Section 1 of the submission, as this will be used to allow a filter search on the home page. Typically the project owner / client / developer is also displayed at the very top of the project board.
What format must logos be?
Our site accepts PNG, JPEG, JPG and TIFF formats for organisation logos. Logos are limited to a maximum of 1 MB each. To avoid delays, it is important to ensure logos are sized correctly in a 2 (horizontal plane) to 1 (vertical plane) ratio with approximately 5 percent 'bleed' (i.e. not used) on each side to fit in the site's standardized dynamic page format. See below example of logo sizing:
