PentaFloor Sponsorship at the new GBCSA Offices

When the Green Building Council South Africa (GBCSA) outgrew its offices in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, a call for sponsorships was sent out requesting contributions from industry to assist with the fit out of the new offices in Rosebank. PentaFloor stepped up with a generous contribution of supplying and installing high-end carpeting products.

 

In keeping with its green building ethic, the GBCSA chose its new space on the corner of Tyrwhitt and Jan Smuts based on the needs of its stakeholders and staff in terms of proximity to the Rosebank Gautrain Station, other public transport options and various amenities. The new office space is targeting a 4-Star Green Star Interiors certification, and the GBCSA have agreed with landlord, Redefine, to pursue an Existing Buildings Performance (EBP) certification for the whole building within the first year of the GBCSA taking occupation of its new premises.
