Fieldspace Property Management goes Green

Green initiatives are a fact of life in the 21st century – and are likely to play an even bigger role in the future. There is an increasing awareness of human impact on the environment, and the need for clean sources of power.

Growthpoint Properties’ Greenfield Industrial Park in Cape Town has been awarded South Africa’s first ever Green Star SA rating for an industrial property.

The Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) today proudly recognised Dr Werner van Antwerpen, Head of Sustainability at Growthpoint Properties, as a true planet shaper, a great friend to green building in South Africa, and this year’s recipient of the GBCSA Chairman’s Award.

Today (27 July 2016), the Western Cape Minister of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant, and Western Cape Minister of Health, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the Khayelitsha Eastern Substructure Office.

After five trailblazing years at the helm of the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA), CEO Brian Wilkinson has announced his early retirement.

The Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) has urged the country to focus on electricity demand side management rather than just supply management, to consider a total energy debate.

A landmark new R157 million green office development by Growthpoint Properties in Umhlanga’s booming Ridgeside precinct is nearing completion and has become Durban’s first 5-Star Green Star SA rated building.

South Africa’s top rated Green Star SA buildings and leading green building professionals were announced in the Green Star SA Leadership Awards 2015 at the annual Green Building Convention in Cape Town.

Growthpoint Properties has targeted boosting its solar energy generation capacity to over 6MWp by mid-2016 to become one of the largest generators of rooftop solar power in South Africa.

Solid Green Consulting has successfully facilitated 20 Green Star SA certifications with the Menlyn Maine Pegasus building marking this milestone.
