The largest occupier of green buildings in South Africa, Nedbank, unveiled its fourth green building in Roodepoort.
Nedbank unveiled its fourth four-star Green Star rated building on 29 August 2014. The latest building, Nedbank Lakeview, is situated in Roodepoort.
The Lakeview building will serve as the banking group’s campus in the west of Johannesburg. The head of group property services at Nedbank, Charl de Kock, says the new Lakeview building symbolises Nedbank’s commitment to growing its sustainability journey.
“The new office space represents a tangible extension of Nedbank’s vision to be a sustainability leader in South Africa,” says De Kock.
The A-grade Lakeview development saw the consolidation of a multitude of buildings on the West Rand, with a capacity to house almost 2 000 staff members. The building features an auditorium, a restaurant with a view of the lake, preferential parking for “efficient” travellers and fully equipped pause areas on each floor.
Nedbank plans to unveil its fifth and sixth Green Star rated buildings in Newtown by the end of 2014. Nedbank’s three other Green Star rated buildings are Nedbank Sandton Phase II in Johannesburg, Nedbank Ridgeside in Durban and Nedbank Menlyn Maine in Pretoria.
