Construction of the Orchards Clinic state-of-the-art primary health care facility in Orange Grove has once again been suspended after the main appointed contractor, Fikile Construction (Pty) LTD, failed to meet the September 2019 deadline to complete construction of the clinic.

The Johannesburg Development Agency (JDA), on behalf of the City of Johannesburg, has been implementing the construction the clinic and appointed Fikile Construction (Pty) LTD, who took over the site in April 2019, after a specialist subcontractor was appointed to create a design solution for construction as a corrective measure following allegations of structural under-design by the previously appointed engineer.
