Discovery’s New Global HQ in Sandton Certified As Green

Discovery’s new global headquarters, located in Sandton Central, now holds the honour of being the first new build project to receive a 5-Star Green rating by the Green Building Council of South Africa. It is a project that’s become a joint venture by two of the country’s top property companies, Zenprop Property Holdings and Growthpoint Limited.

The beautiful new 112,000sqm building is a resource effective and cost efficient, eco-friendly endeavour. It is also the largest single phase commercial office development on the continent. From its inception, the design to construction and operation, the sustainable development has been a key priority to both the property companies and to Discovery.

Growthpoint Properties’ Office Division Director, Rudolf Pienaar, says: “We are thrilled with the 5-Star Green Star certification achieved for this development, especially considering its scale and complexity.”

“The new Discovery head office is now among the most environmentally sustainable and efficient buildings in South Africa,” Pienaar says, continuing, “Green building plays a key role in providing spaces in which businesses can thrive. We are incredibly proud to be part of the creation of the new global headquarters for Discovery in a building that is both spectacular and sustainable.”

Largest New Building Certified As Green Star To Date In South Africa

Zenprop Property Holdings CEO, James Tannenberger is of the opinion that it’s a significant milestone for Zenprop, specifically since their long history of delivering environmentally conscious and sustainable buildings across all sectors of the property market is so well known.

GBCSA Executive Director: Certifications, Manfred Braune, says it is the largest new building certified as Green Star to date in South Africa, which makes it an incredible achievement. It continues to be a testament to the advancement and innovation achievable in South Africa, as it leads the continent in sustainable and eco-friendly constructions.
