Due to the existing
building structure, there were space constraints due to existing services and
down stand beams in the ceiling. Existing tenants had to be accommodated within
the building whilst the existing HVAC Systems were decommissioned and removed.
Each tower has nine zones, each with distinctly unique temperature profiles.
The totally new façade added extra floor area to the existing office footprint
and a full height atrium was added to the building.
Existing tenants were provided with temporary air-conditioning whilst the existing HVAC system was decommissioned and removed.
Completed as scheduled, the building’s glass façade makes it one of the most eye-catching buildings in Sandton.
The suspended glass atrium is a first in South Africa.
The air cooled Ammonia chiller installed is the second of its kind in South Africa.
The building is 4-Star Green Star rated and received the Best Quality Submission Award from the Green Building Council of SA in 2014.
