Illovo Completed Project KwaZulu Natal.

Illovo’s first presence in South Africa can be traced back to KwaZulu-Natal in 1891 when Sir Charles George Smith set in motion a series of events that would ultimately result in the establishment of Africa’s biggest sugar producer - Illovo Sugar (PTY) Ltd. Listed on the JSE Limited in 1992, Illovo’s corporate head office is in Durban, providing strategic, financial, operational, technical, commercial, human resources and corporate support to its extensive operations across six African countries. There are six sugar producers in South Africa with combined production of around 2 million tons. -

AECOM share this magnificent space with Illovo. AECOM has offices in over 40 countries, including Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Libya, Mozambique, Nigeria, South Africa and Uganda. With top-level professionals in multiple locations, AECOM understands Africa’s specific infrastructure needs, together with the inherent challenges of working on the continent. Its multi-disciplinary teams of award-winning engineers, planners, architects, environmental specialists, economists, scientists, consultants, cost, project and programme managers are committed to delivering projects that improve the quality of life of communities throughout Africa.

AECOM has inaugurated its new KwaZulu-Natal head office in Umhlanga Ridge, believed to be the first building in Durban to have achieved a five Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa. This proactive approach to sustainability and energy efficiency was emblematic of the innovation and passion that AECOM brought to the built environment in the province. “In line with our economy’s key theme of growth, Durban is poised to grow substantially over the next couple of decades. AECOM’s values, professionalism and technical expertise are very much aligned with this.

Italtile’s Commercial Agent Victor van den Berg’s dedication on the product supply for this KZN project was enticed by the enthusiasm of the teams working on this project. With Growth Point managing the development and winning SAPOA Innovative Excellence Award for Best Commercial Office Development for its Ridgeview offices in Umhlanga, KZN, which recognise significant contributions made through innovation and excellence within the property sector. And the dynamic team on this project, architects with combined knowledge and experience to dedicate proven excellence, from EPA: George Elphick {Director}, Chiara Braida {Lead Architect} and Angie James {‎Interior designer}, this magnificent building brought excitement into the New Year in January 2016 when this project concluded.
