Aurecon’s second Century City building, designed by MaC Architects, to seek green star rating.

When Aurecon’s Century City office building in Cape Town was built in 2011, it was the first building in South Africa to be awarded a 5-star Green Star SA Office Design v1 rating by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA). The company is now expanding its office space and is developing a second building that will be adjoined to the first one via a sky-bridge. The existing building will be renamed Aurecon East and the new building will be called Aurecon West.

The decision to pursue a Green Star SA rating was not only one that fulfills the group’s aim to reduce its carbon footprint but also made business sense: “Profit aside, it’s the right thing to do for our planet,” says Aurecon’s Cape Town Office Manager, Ferdi Nell.

Aurecon West will comprise of 3,280m² of premium office space. Completion is scheduled for November 2015.
