Concor Buildings received industry recognition at Construction World’s 2019 Best Projects awards last night when the company scooped the winning place in the Building Contractors category with its Oxford Parks Phase 1 Project.
In addition to this, the project also received a Special Mention in the AfriSam Innovation Award for Sustainable Construction.
Rui Santos, managing director of Concor Buildings, says that the company has established a reputation for tackling complex projects and delivering these safely, on time and within budget.
The Oxford Parks Phase 1 Project comprises a super basement structure with five buildings of which the BPSA was the first to be completed. Significantly, Concor Buildings has been appointed to continue work on the balance of the structures in the precinct.
About the winning entry
The BPSA head office building, with its compelling triangular shape, is a celebration of inspired architectural design coupled with meticulous attention to detail during construction, creating a strong focus point in Rosebank, Johannesburg.
Constructed by Concor Buildings, the new GBCSA 4-Star Green-rated head office for BPSA is the first completed building in the Oxford Parks Precinct. The Oxford Parks Precinct was selected as a pilot project for the Green Building Council of South Africa to create a green precinct rating tool for public environment projects.
The site of this development is near the Rosebank Gautrain station giving priority to alternative transport systems thus potentially reducing environmental impact of the tenants and customers.
While the architectural team impressed with an iconic design, Concor Buildings’ construction team excelled with innovative solutions for the challenges they faced to deliver a quality structure on time and within budget.
