Construction of a P-grade office building totaling 18000 square meters with four levels of parking (approx 270 bays), a subdividable auditorium, full canteen and kitchen. The building is to employ the latest state of the art building management systems and access control/security systems. The building is 6 Greenstar-rated and is the first in Africa to be awarded a WELL rating. Extensive use of sustainable technologies are employed on the project. Examples are: Solar power, rainwater harvesting, grey water harvesting, xeriscaping. The five-level atrium is topped by an ETFE skylight. The building is located on a class 8 dolomite site and this requires innovative founding techniques and early warning systems (extensometers).
