The highlight of this event for Shaun was a tour of the new global headquarters of Discovery in Sandton. The iconic new 112 000 m² building, recently received a 5-Star Green Star SA rating by the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA), making it the largest new build project to receive this rating, to date. The size of the building, coupled with the way that employee well-being and health was placed at the heart of all the design principles, makes this a landmark project,” says Martin Smith, Aurecon Technical Director - Buildings.
Situated on the corner of Rivonia Road and Katherine Street, the building is comprised of three linked office towers: a ground floor, eight office floors and an activated roof level with sports facilities (fully equipped gym, yoga decks, a running track and multipurpose courts). The design features an abundance of natural light with most of the building being wrapped around a series of sunlit atria that illuminate the cores of the building.
