The building consists of six basements which include preferred parking bays for alternative fuel vehicles, motorbikes, mopeds and cyclist facilities. The usable office area is 10 744m² and is spread over five floors. The building is located on a public podium, which is the first portion of a larger precinct podium within the central Windhoek city.
The Green Star South Africa rating system was contextualised to the Namibian context. The GREEN-by-DESIGN team developed a context specific Green Star rating system during the pre-construction phase of the project. The approval by the GBCSA realised this great achievement, a Green Star SA-Nam Office v1 Rating Tool, available publically for application in Namibia.
As this project is the first Green Star building to be constructed in Namibia, the contractor team had little institutional knowledge of the important of documenting construction for a Green Building. This challenge was overcome by several site visits during construction, and video conference calling throughout the construction period.
