VIGÉSIMO TERCEIRO LIVRO
A CHAIN OF SERVICE STATIONS
There were quite a few wars amongst petrol companies in Mozambique over the best sites and positions for service stations. Often clients intending to develop a property would approach a petrol company with drawings incorporating a service station to try to obtain finance. Sometimes the company itself would build a service station for itself if it found no suitable developer. I designed an endless number of such service stations sometimes three over a weekend to show to clients on Monday morning. A few got built like the one at the Polana Hotel which was a very simple formal pavilion at the end of the guest parking.
