Divercity Urban Property Fund is investing R2-billion in Johannesburg as part of its strategy to create thriving mixed-use inner-city precincts. This investment, the largest in the Johannesburg CBD for some years, is focused on the redevelopment of the iconic ABSA Towers Main building and Jewel City.

The main architectural feature of the Flamingo Shopping Centre in Modderfontein, Johannesburg is a concrete ribbon undulating across the façade. This was refined during the design development and construction phases, resulting in a unique and elegant design solution compared to that of conventional strip-mall architecture.

Kwikspace has been actively involved in contributing to educational infrastructure facilities’ development in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape. Primarily an agricultural and industrial province, aging prefabricated school buildings in several of the province’s districts are being demolished to make way for brick and mortar-constructed replacements – a 24 to 30 month process.

Designed by GIBB Engineering and Architecture, the Motherwell Passenger Rail Corridor (MPRC) in the Eastern Cape is one of PRASA’s largest rail projects. The MPRC, when constructed will be a major benefit for Port Elizabeth and could lead to other important developments, such as the upgrading of the railway station in the area to include an intermodal hub and retail facilities, according to GIBB Project Manager, Nico Pienaar.

The next generation of healthcare buildings will be very different from the hospitals, clinics and general practitioner (GP) surgeries we are familiar with today. A revolution in building design is already underway, which has largely been prompted by an acceleration of technological innovation, changing population demographics, shifts in expectations of how healthcare should be provided and environmental considerations.

The Independent Development Trust (IDT) has completed the first phase of a Department of Public Works project to refurbish and restore its workshop facilities in the inner city of Tshwane, and thus helping the department to reach a significant milestone in the restoration of its buildings in the administrative capital.
