Business Connexion (BCX) is building its new head office in Centurion, which consists of two office blocks of five storeys – linked on the ground floor with communal meeting rooms and an auditorium.
The new campus will feature two levels of semi-basement parking and a warehouse facility with open parking and covered parking.
It will be located on the corner of Lenchen North and South Streets, opposite Centurion mall.
The central location offers the company lots of marketing potential, with the area earmarked for new government developments.
The development offers around 36,000 square metres of office space, which includes a 2,500 square metre warehouse.
Feenstra Group, the Public Investment Corporation, and Community Investment Holdings are developing BCX’s new office, with Murray & Roberts and Fikile Construction in charge of construction.
The development includes many green building features, and is pursuing a 4-star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa.
The sustainability and efficiency factors which form part of the building include:
- Primarily LED lighting.
- A central chilled water system, where water is generated for the building cooling system by high-efficiency air-cooled chillers located on the roof.
- A low-pressure variable air volume system which supplies conditioned air to the building via decentralised air handling units located on each floor.
Building progressing well
BCX broke ground at the new site on 20 August 2015, and good progress has been made since.
