WWW.OUTLOOKPUBLISHING.COM

Under the Outlook Publishing umbrella C O N S T R U C T I O N and spanning three of the most developed and innovative regions on the planet; Africa Outlook, Asia Outlook and Europe & Middle East Outlook strives each and every month to bring the very latest news, trends and success stories across the full array of industrial sectors. Construction has long been an instrumental and fascinating topic of P O R T F O L I O discussion as part of these continuously evolving publications, featuring heavily in both our front-of-book section as well as our core company profile showcase. The latter facet is where we pride ourselves especially, leading to the inclusion of some of the world’s most prominent players in the construction domain, as documented in this portfolio. In Africa, the likes of Broll, Laxmanbhai Construction and Bentel Associates have all provided critical insight into the most pressing industry trends engulfing continental infrastructure, while international heavyweights, Atlas Copco have been heavily featured across both our African and EME publications in recent times; incorporating their Swedish, Kenyan and Zambian operations. Similarly, Asia has long been recognised as a pioneer of contemporary construction, epitomised by the likes of Davy Sukamta as seen within this assortment. These examples, and this portfolio as a whole, provide just a small sample of the extensive coverage we have provided the construction industry’s leading protagonists over the past two years, and with the Outlook Publishing name fast-spreading throughout the sector’s consciousness via numerous media partnerships and event collaborations, there has never been a better time to join these industry heavyweights in enjoying the same unparalleled levels of exposure. Reaching 165,000 monthly readers in Africa as well as a further 190,000 in Asia and 380,000 in the EME region, construction has been one of the most prominent sectors throughout Outlook Publishing’s growth, so please do take a look at this brochure as proof of what Matthew Staff we can offer, so that we can, in turn, Editorial Director, Outlook Publishing continue to give back to the industry.

SHAPING the Future of Property Services In its 40th year, Broll Property Group is targeting a significant milestone that will see the business become fully internationalised across the African continent Writer: Emily Jarvis Project Manager: Nick Norris

4

roudly celebrating its 40th anniversary, Broll Property Group has been strengthening every facet of its business to further penetrate the sub-Saharan Africa property market; embracing an ethos of local employment and addressing current market trends to enhance its international status. The globally reputed and leading property Group has developed from a

single service property management line into a multi-disciplinary, awardwinning Company that today, services the investor and occupier markets across sub-Saharan Africa. “Reaching the 40-year milestone is of huge importance to us,” says Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Malcolm Horne. “It goes back to the old saying that life begins at 40. We’ve grown the business with a solid platform, having developed it in such a way that we are now a single point of contact across

the continent for a range of property services. “As a forward-looking business, we believe in Africa and its future despite the doom and gloom we often hear about. We are old and mature enough to have a solid foundation and strong roots on the continent, and young enough to start enjoying what we have achieved while working on our next milestones,” he adds.

Shaping the Group’s future

When South Africa became a democratic nation in 1994, Broll saw an opportunity to venture into Africa and opened its first office outside the country in Namibia in 2003. In order to secure long-term business on the continent, the Group signed an affiliation deal with CBRE the following year. Through this affiliation, Broll is able to access global market knowledge and

best practice to the benefits of its clients. To diversify its income streams, the Group added other service lines and opened offices in West Africa, starting with Nigeria in 2004, swiftly followed by Ghana in 2006. More recently, the Group looked east for its latest expansion, opening an office in Kenya in 2013, with the Mozambique office having opened this year. By the end of this financial year, Broll is to report record client numbers and growth across the board, Horne summarises: “Our ever-widening geographies and depth of service delivery across sub-Saharan Africa has allowed the business to continue to absorb growth and expand our client base, allowing us to grow just as fast as demand. “By the end of 2015, Broll will have offices in 12 countries; including South Africa, Namibia, Malawi, Zambia, Mozambique, Mauritius, Ivory Coast, Uganda, Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and operations in more than 17 sub-Saharan African countries. “Our next milestone is to see the business being fully internationalised, so we encourage investors to watch the space!”

Broll Facilities Management Delivers Award-Winning Efficiency

Rowland Gurnell, COO

FM Awards GOLD for Facilities Excellence in the 2015 PMR Golden Arrow Award BRONZE for Facilities Excellence in the 2014 PMR Golden Arrow Award GOLD for Facilities Excellence in the 2013 PMR Golden Arrow Award

IN THE past year, Broll Facilities Management (FM) has seen a rapid increase in its business, growing by more than 200 percent in line with the increase in clients opening offices in various countries across the continent. Chief Operating Officer (COO) for Broll FM, Rowland Gurnell puts this down to the Group’s ability to “consistently deliver excellent, awardwinning service levels to clients in an environment where we learn all the time and continue to improve our service offering”. Today, Broll FM is looking at ways to further consolidate and refine its offering across its current operations in the corporate, retail and tertiary sectors with the integration of the facilities and property management silos within the wider Group. “Our affiliation with world-leading real estate and investment advisor, CBRE has also contributed to our growth with the addition of a number of global clients,” Gurnell adds. Working across these three key sectors and striving for continuous improvement demonstrates that Broll FM understands that each client has different needs. “This is why we integrate a client’s FM models so that they are flexible and can be customised to fit their individual needs and requirements,” he further notes.

TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS

B

y closely working with the client and their portfolio, Broll FM is able to offer a tailor-made solution where a full FM service is not economically viable. Gurnell explains: “Whether clients are in a space of 100 square metres or 30,000 square metres, Broll FM has been a proven costsaver; leveraging our extensive contractor database to negotiate the best rates and offer these contractors increased volumes of work as well as a platform to share resources.” Moreover, Broll FM’s drive to further improve efficiencies and cater for the aforementioned rapid growth has led the Group to implement some of the best technologies to support its service offering; including an effective reporting tool that tracks every call made by the Company, and a supplier interface portal offering full transparency from call tracking to invoicing. Broll FM currently operates in South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Cameroon, Nigeria, Ghana and Ivory Coast; and in Egypt and Morocco through CBRE. “To satisfy the growing demand for facilities management, in the next few months, Broll FM will be opening offices in Congo, Gabon, Senegal, GuineaBissau, Liberia, Benin, Southern Sudan and Ethiopia,” Gurnell summarises.

Years of ISO quality management standards

WHILE MANY multinational corporates already have a successful track record spanning decades in Africa, many more are still in the process of developing their operations across the continent. Africa delivers the potential for a strong and loyal consumer base from a largely under-serviced, yet rapidly urbanising population, now supported by a generally less restrictive regulatory environment. Requirements from a real estate solution for corporate occupiers, therefore, depend on the growth phase of the individual company and vary enormously across the spectrum from an initial supporting functional role to an integrated platform for business enhancement. Real estate services for occupiers revolve around managing the accommodation value chain from start to finish. Elements include managing property

The common cornerstone across all stages of the business cycle is the need for a fit-for-purpose real estate portfolio that provides value for money.

Across Africa, supply is evolving to meet those needs. Real estate is truly becoming a creator of change and is in fact changing the face of entire markets and cities. Within this context, corporate real estate services are increasingly seen not only as a facilitator to business and economy, but as a potential source of competitive advantage for corporates in terms of attracting and retaining customers and employees alike. Major themes across many occupier portfolios currently tend to revolve

around improving levels of space utilisation, portfolio optimisation and structuring portfolios to unlock inherent value and ensuring flexibility - all with a driven focus on reduction of total occupancy costs and delivering financial benefits in line with business objectives.

Tailor-made occupier portfolio

Meeting this cross-section of real estate needs is achieved through strategies crafted to optimise the portfolio to manage internal and external uncertainties with enough flexibility to adapt to changes in the operating environment. Sources of such change may include fluctuations in market supply and demand, the competitive landscape, the company’s own business model and an evolving and dynamic customer base.

In order to achieve this, Broll utilises its market-leading Broll online management system, a fully integrated property and financial management system offering valuable business intelligence analytics and assessment capabilities. “Delivering value-add is about constantly asking the ‘why’ while successfully implementing the ‘how’ via the development of a strategic plan to reach the client’s objectives in the most efficient way possible,” says Rix.

Haw & Inglis Group of Companies has grown in line with market demand and internal progression over the past three decades to now comprise one of the most complete construction offerings in South Africa Writer: Matthew Staff | Project Manager: Tom Cullum

aw & Inglis’ (H&I) expansion and diversification of construction services over the past 32 years has led it to market-leading status, but with innovation and entrepreneurship deeply ingrained into its fabric, the Company is certainly not willing to rest on its laurels. The South African, Western Cape-based contractor has made a name for itself for its expertise in projects of significant size and complexity over the years; spanning areas of road construction, road rehabilitation, infrastructure, and building construction. And while the business’s core focus in South Africa and the neighbouring region revolves around national and provincial arterial roads and urban highways, H&I’s flexibility across building construction projects facilitates urban infrastructure and select institutional, industrial, commercial, residential and other building projects.

Prior to that, “H&I Building Construction was established as a subsidiary in 2005 with its primary focus on building construction within select industrial, commercial, residential and institutional building construction projects”, Chemaly adds. “Projects undertaken by Haw and Inglis Building Construction are in the public and private sectors as well as PPPs ranging from light industrial complexes to state-of-the-art office and residential buildings. “During 2013, H&I also entered the renewable energy market, having negotiated four design and construct contracts.” These projects entailed the construction of tower bases, crane platforms, roads and all associated works, with H&I geared up not only to manage the design aspect of infrastructure contracts, but also to extend its expertise to managing and negotiating lump sum, fixed price contracts. More recently, Haw & Inglis has also successfully penetrated the very challenging marine construction environment; once again leveraging the turnkey nature of its internal structure and expertise to carry out the rehabilitation of quays, the construction of small craft harbours and the construction of large jetties. “Projects have been completed for major clients such as Transnet and the Department of Public Works in this area, and overall, our offering has expanded over the years as our reputation in the industry has grown,” Chemaly says. “We have moved from road construction solely, into building construction, marine, renewable energy, specialist structural concrete and crushing services.”

one sector, there has been a recent development focus in the past 10 years on mixed-use developments and we are currently capitalising on this market trend,” comments Tim Harlech-Jones, Business Development Director (BDD) of Bentel Associates International. “The Company is a pioneer of shopping centre design in South Africa,

and retail has since mushroomed into a significant part of our business today across the continent. We have influenced a significant number of landmark and award-winning retail and mixed-use project designs through our complete service offering: architecture, master planning, store planning, interior design and graphic design,” he adds.

The proliferation of new capital combined with a strong pipeline of projects coming from outside of South Africa has served to bolster BAI’s growing international presence, becoming an architectural leader on the world stage.

WWW.ASIAOUTLOOKMAG.COM

In 1993, DS&P used high capacity bored-pile up to 550 tonnes allowable load while the normal practice at that time was around 350 tonnes. In 1994, DS&P designed the first RC core-wall and outriggers structure. In 1995, DS&P designed the Gran Mahakam hotel with top-down method, excavating 11-meter deep just 1.5 metres away from two-tothree-story neighbouring buildings. DS&P also designed the first building in Indonesia beyond 50 levels in 1994, the 52-story Amartapura Residential towers. At that time DS&P pushed the concrete grade to 60 MPa for that development when the common grade was just 25-35 MPa, and then recently to 70 MPa for Indonesia-1. In order to obtain reliable quality, DS&P worked closely - and still does - with ready mix suppliers in an experimental programme to obtain valuable on-site data. The role of business partners in advancing new technology is indispensable as such.

Pakubuwono Development

With such mutual collaboration, DS&P is able to set the trend in the construction industry in Indonesia including higher grade concrete, the use of post-installed anchors to transfer forces, crystalline barrier waterproofing for white tanking of basement structure, and the use of chemical admixtures and minerals to obtain the required concrete properties. Throughout its practice, DS&P has promoted numerous first-time design and construction applications in Indonesia. Examples include the

use of the sacrificial cell method to load-test bored-piles for Pakubuwono Residence in 2003; the use of post-grout techniques to increase the allowable capacity of the bored-pile for the Plaza Indonesia Extension (PIE) project in 2006; the use of micro piles with soilsupported mat to resist tensile force from hydrostatic pressure for the Trans Luxury hotel in Bandung in 2009; the design of the first high-rise building with seismic isolation in Southeast Asia in 2010, the use of Performance-Based Seismic Design; and the design of the

This method saved 11 months construction time. The two residential and office towers, 48 and 42 stories high, with sixlevel podium and five-level basement

were able to be completed in 36 months because of this method. This is the first successful application of the up-down method in Indonesia. Up to the present day, DS&P has designed nine deep basement structures with top-down or up-down methods, the deepest being the seven-level 25-metre deep excavation for Indonesia-1. This method of construction requires careful planning on the sequence of work and detailing of plunged king-posts. DS&P uses highend analysis technique for this type

PT PP (PERSERO) TBK

P

T PP (Persero) Tbk (IDX: PTPP) is the oldest and one of the largest construction and investment SOE companies in Indonesia, established in 1953. For more than six decades, PTPP has successfully completed various projects across Indonesia, including monumental buildings and infrastructures. In 2010, PTPP listed its shares for the first time on the Indonesian Stock Exchange (BEI). Since then, PTPP has diversified its activity through seven business pillars grouped into three categories. Upstream business includes property, infrastructure investment, and energy investment. Midstream business includes construction services and EPC (power plant, resources). Downstream business includes precast and equipment.

Anandamaya Residence

based engineering firm. The experience in design and construction of these projects has been presented as technical paper in international forums including the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). The use of seismic isolation systems is another novelty in Indonesia, especially for high-rise buildings. One client requested DS&P to design their new 22-story Gudang Garam office tower using this system in 2010, after

a series of earthquake events shaking Jakarta. The first high-rise with seismic isolation in Southeast Asia was then borne, followed by the 27-story Puri Matahari in 2012. Both buildings were designed using high-damping rubber bearings by DS&P. While the use of steel or composite construction for high-rise buildings in Indonesia is not popular, DS&P recognises its advantage and has become the leader in promoting its use.

The stocks of the property subsidiaries of PTPP have grown significantly above the industry average, indicating public trust over the companies’ performances. Both companies’ stocks have been included in the Morgan Stanley Composite Index. Since January 2014, PTPP stock has also been included in the LQ45 index. Aligned with the Indonesian Government’s commitment to boost infrastructure and SOE companies’ role in the development, PTPP has strong opportunities to expand its business. Equipped with experience and capability in construction and investment, allied with strong public interest in PTPP’s stocks and a vital role as a nation development agent, PTPP now looks further afield to expand with the aim to be the largest construction Company in the ASEAN region in terms of equity by 2018. PTPP is building a strong presence in ASEAN, as shown by numerous regional and international accolades received in 2016 and since has set its vison to become a sustainable ASEAN-class construction and investment Company.

MR SAFETY GROUP Composite construction for the City Tower

The Company has designed a number of projects with concrete and steel as the structural material. The City Tower, a 30-story office building with RC corewall and steel gravity framing, set the record for speed of construction by completing 30 stories in four months. Gudang Garam and Puri Matahari are two other high-rises with the same structural framing material. The details used in these steel structures meet the seismic requirement of AISC. Currently, DS&P is designing a theatre and convention building with a three-tier theatre comprising 2,400 seats and two ballrooms at 2,850 and 950 square metres each. The design of the complex structure with longspan transfer trusses is an engineering feat in its own, not to mention the seismic design strategy adopted in accommodating the intricate layout.

The erection of the steel trusses will utilise the heavy-lifting method. The roof trusses span 52 metres, while the transfer trusses at floor level span 26 metres. For the application of the new design method, DS&P stands in front by being the first to use Performancebased Seismic Design in Indonesia for the 50-story Pakubuwono Signature in 2012. Papers on this subject have consequently been presented at CTBUH conferences as well as in HAKI (Indonesian Society of Civil and Structural Engineers) annual conferences.

In order to maintain highperformance services, a limit is provided to the number of projects taken on, with careful planning and consideration on available resources. Contrary to a conventional business way of thinking, the Company would not hesitate to turn down projects if its resources have already been absorbed in other ongoing projects. With limited projects in-hand, DS&P is able to provide a first-class personalized service to the clients, giving full commitment with passion. No time limit is set to finish a job; it must simply be performed to optimum satisfaction. This explains that despite the high fee, the business has managed to become the ’destination’ consultant of smart developers who value high quality service and end results rather than the cost of the design fee. Almost all projects are awarded through direct appointment from a host of loyal clients.
