Botswana’s first Green Star-rated office signals a milestone along the green building development path for the country.

A 11 000 sqm specialised surgical hospital development by Growthpoint Properties (JSE: GRT) and Cintocare has opened in Pretoria, Gauteng, to become the first 5-star rated green hospital in Africa, and only the fifth in the world with its specialised surgical mix and clinical business model.

As the world grapples with the uncertainty surrounding the long-term implications of Covid-19, there is a measure of agreement on one thing - the global pandemic has fast-tracked numerous trends which were already emerging prior to the crisis.

JSE-listed Balwin Properties Limited (Balwin Properties or the Company) and Absa Group Limited (Absa) today launched South Africa’s first green home loan, the Absa Eco Home Loan.

Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) will be reducing their physical office footprint from two regional offices into one, resulting in GBCSA operations being located in Cape Town.

From 2010, when Nedbank completed its headquarters on the corner of Rivonia Road and Maude Street to become the country’s first Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) Green Star-certified building, Sandton Central has remained on the cutting edge of green building practices on the African continent.

One of the key ways for Africa to attract significant external investment is to improve levels of liquidity across the continent. 

Discovery Place, the new high-performance global headquarters developed for Discovery in a joint venture of two of South Africa’s leading property companies, Growthpoint Properties and Zenprop Property Holdings, is the overall winner of the prestigious South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Awards 2019.

JSE listed Balwin Properties, a developer that cares about environmentally responsible building practices and the delivery of high-quality apartments to its valued clients, today announced a major achievement in its ongoing drive to fight climate change through the mainstreaming of green lifestyle developments.

The spotlight will be on Africa and its urban development this week as more than 250 executives and professionals in the built environment sector are set to attend the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Summit Africa event in Sandton Central, Johannesburg.
