Growthpoint Illovo


The Supreme Award goes to the Overall winner for excellence in construction and was presented to WBHO Construction KZN for Growthpoint Illovo Office Development

This 9 storey building of just under 40 000 m2 was completed in a total construction period of 16 months. An absolutely remarkable achievement was that over 10 000 m2 of suspended slabs were cast in a 23 day period. Achieving an incredible feat of completing the building in the contract period, a remarkable standard of workmanship was also achieved, notwithstanding the fact that every floor above ground level has a larger footprint than the slab below it.

The innovative glass facade and glass fritted fins has set the industry benchmark for an iconic visual feature and green office buildings in South Africa.
