Karl Bremer Hospital receives two awards

The R128 million regional office building at Karl Bremer Hospital in Bellville became the first recipient of the Socio-Economic Pilot Award by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).

The Department of Transport and Public Works was recognised by the GBCSA for its work on the building under construction for the Department of Health and is expected to be completed in January 2017.

The project was also awarded the GBCSA 5-Star Green Star Certified SA rating for design of a public or education building.

The socio-economic award goes to a green building project that has made a significant contribution to employment creation, economic opportunity, skills development and training, community benefit and empowerment as well as health and safety.

The Green Star rating measures the extent to which the design of a building performs well in terms of management, indoor environmental quality, energy, transport, water, materials, land use and ecology, emissions, and innovation.

The facility under construction on a 14 000m² site on the corner of Mike Pienaar Boulevard and Frans Conradie Drive will provide accommodation for over 320 public servants. Since construction started in January 2015, R70 million has been spent on procuring services from local contractors, and 5% of the total project value is to be spent on joint-venture contracts with developing contractors, 25% on the procurement of project specific goods and services from black-owned and women-owned small and medium-sized enterprise and 70% in respect of materials, products and services on locally produced goods.

The office will use less water, generate less waste and provide healthier working conditions. Passive solar design minimises the need for heating and cooling. Activity spaces are open and aimed at encouraging communication between offices and promoting a sense of community. Bicycle friendly facilities are provided for building staff and visitors to encourage commuters to use non-motorised transport.
