Absa moves into 5-star Green Star Bridge Park
Absa has relocated its Cape Town to the 18 000 square metre Bridge Park office development in the Bridgeways precinct of Century City.
The bank has been relocating staff from 14 different offices around Cape Town with the move scheduled to be completed by August.
Bridge Park was recently awarded a 5-Star Green Star SA Office v1 Design rating by the Green Building Council of South Africa.
Designed by dhk Architects and developed at a cost of R450million in a joint venture by Rabie Property Group and Growthpoint Properties, Bridge Park comprises two four storey buildings set over a shared basement and podium.
This brings to five the number of Green Star rated buildings in the all-green Bridgeways precinct which is also home to the R1billion Century Square development which in turn is registered with the GBCSA as a pilot project for a new mixed use rating tool.
Rabie director Colin Anderson said they were also aiming for a Green Star rating for Bridge Park in the As Built category.
The main contractor on the Bridge Park development was Murray & Roberts while the sustainable building consultants were PJCarew Consulting.
