Built as a commercial office building for Sustainable Energy Africa and other organisations such as sustainable.co.za* an online eco-store and resource that offers a wide range of products as well as services.

Investors and SEA wanted to "walk the talk" and show it could be done as a commercial investment (with limited financial resources and no grant financing) - that this can be a normal way of building in the future!!

This project aims to demonstrate:

* A commercially viable green building including maximum lettable space with adequate parking, cost effective design and materials
* Resource efficient building
* Healthy and beautiful working environment
* Design responsive to user needs
* Environmentally responsible building and operations

Important determinants of design:

* Tenant needs
* Participative design and construction
* Passive solar design
* Efficient and environmentally responsible resource use
* Local availability of materials
* Limited finances
* Financial viability
* Simple structure
* Modular layout for easy adaptability

* sustainable.co.za can be contacted at 021 701 2028 or zeke@sustainable.co.za
