From the Desk By the time this editorial reaches our readers SANS 10400A:2010 will be applicable to the building industry. This standard controls the administration function. It invokes the relevant National Building Regulations published by the Minister in May 2008 which became effective October 2008.

T

hese prescriptive regulations have, in the main, been ignored by the entire industry. The reason given was that SABS 0400A:1990 was not updated and published by SABS. Here is a newsflash! SANS 10400-A:2010 was published in November 2010 and must be fully implemented from 1 June 2011. It will now be required to prove compliance with the National Building Regulations at time of application for building approval. Also published by SABS, at time of writing are Parts C, D, F, G, J, K, M, N, O, P, Q, S, T, V and W of SANS 10400:2010/2011. These should all be taken into account when proving compliance with the National Building Regulations unless a rational design for the particular parts of the Regulations is executed by the relevant Competent Persons appointed at time of application for the erection of the building! It appears to us therefore that appointing Competent Persons at the completion of the job to approve compliance with the National Building Regulations may become an activity from the past. One either complies with deemed-to-satisfy provisions, or, with the control of duly appointed Competent Persons, executes a rational design which in part may include compliance with deemed-for-satisfy provisions. Please note that SANS 10400-A:2010 also contains the prescriptive Regulations E: Demolition Work and U: Refuse Disposal. There are no deemed-tosatisfy (i.e. no individual SANS 10400 Parts) for these requirements! Our Association represents companies involved in the manufacture, distribution and installation of fenestration, glazing materials, thermal insulation materials and ceiling & partitioning. SANS 10400 Parts B, N and T provide provisions of the requirements which are to be complied with to satisfy the National Building Regulations. Companies are required to prove quality of products through testing in accordance with the relevant test detailed in appropriate SANS standards as follows:

1.

PART T: Fire Protection

1.1 Thermal insulation materials are to be tested in accordance with appropriate parts of SANS 10177 and are classified in accordance with SANS 428

Hans A Schefferlie, executive director

– Fire performance classification of thermal insulated building envelope systems. Do not use any combustible thermal insulation materials which have not been classified in accordance with SANS 428. Please consult our website, at time of application for approval of the erection of the building, for the up-to-date information regarding registration in terms of SANS 428 of thermal insulation materials manufactured by our members. 1.2 Please note that in terms of SANS 10400-T:2011 atrium buildings and shopping malls are not adequately covered by the deemed-to-satisfy requirements and should, in most cases, be the subject of a rational design. Appoint a Competent Person (Fire Engineer) at time of application for approval of the erection of the building.

2.

PART N: Glazing

2.1 Compliance with Regulation N1(1) At time of application for approval of the erection of the building: 2.1.1 Appoint Competent Person (Structures) to establish wind load requirements of fenestration in terms of SANS 10160-3. Our Association no longer recommends members to determine wind load without input from Competent Person (Structures) and have withdrawn all our wind load recommendations in all our publications. 2.1.2 Obtain Performance Test Certificate for the glazing (glazing materials plus framing material) to confirm fenestration is suitable for application in respect of requirements laid down in SANS 613:2009 – Fenestration products – Mechanical performance criteria. 2.1.3 Appoint Competent Person (Glazing) for glazing applications not covered by SANS 10400:N – Glazing. 2.2 Compliance with Regulation N1(2) On job completion, obtain Performance Test Certificate (see paragraph 2.1.2) and Glazing Certificate confirming requirements for the installation of safety glazing materials, as contained in SANS 10400-N.

Tile Africa Contracts provides an invaluable service to architects, contractors and specifiers as it offers on-site technical advice as well as an aftercare service and the methods of installation and the materials supplied are in line with local and international standards.

On-site technical advice as well as an aftercare service “We supply to a diverse range of projects, from high-traffic areas such as showrooms, retail outlets and shopping centres to residential and commercial developments as well as government facilities,” says Craig Irvine, national contracts manager for Tile Africa Contracts. Tiles fulfil a multitude of functions, they provide attractive flooring and cladding to housing developments and corporate office parks where aesthetics and visual appeal are of great importance whereas non-porous porcelain tiles contribute to a hygienic surface in hospitals. Food manufacturing plants necessitate tiles with a high-tensile strength that can handle heavy loads, machinery and trucks. Tiles are also able to reduce the maintenance and upkeep of buildings in the long run.

New clients that are now being supplied by Tile Africa Contracts include restaurants and fast food chains such as John Dory’s, Pizza Perfect and KFC, motor dealerships such as BMW and Fiat Alfa and retailer Metro Cash ‘n Carry. Tile Africa Contracts introduced Interbau swimming pool tiles that are imported from Germany to its portfolio and supplies these tiles to private, hotel, spa, leisure and public sports pools. The Interbau range has a very low porosity and water absorption, is resistant against frost and is available in a wide range of colours. The structure of the pores inside the tile body is obtained through a process of extrusion and results in a tile that has unbeatable bonding strength with the adhesive. An experienced and qualified consulting team allows for logistical planning for any pool according to the client’s requirements.

PRACTICE PROFILE

Cultural Identity

Aligning philosophies can be a complex undertaking, particularly when combining art, culture and upbringing. “Architect & Specificator” recently spoke to Prakasen Govender of PGA Architects, to learn about his firm’s approach to architecture.

I

came from an Indian school and we weren’t really encouraged to be architects,” he smiles. “My father wanted me to be a docPrakasen Govender of PGA Architects tor, but the course I was studying included art, which appealed to me. During a ‘eureka’ moment, I decided to apply to the University of Natal school of architecture.” This was easier said than done, as there was stiff competition for positions in the courses.

It’s radical in its form, so it really stands out Human science

“I went up against some of the best students in

the country and it was a tough course with long hours, but we studied under some truly great local architects who gave us grounding in excellent design,” he explains. “Architecture is a human science as well as an art and maturity gives a better insight into the process.” In conjunction with a teaching position at ML Sultan, and later at the University of Natal, Prakasen started a practice in 1996. “I spent years at ML Sultan both teaching and learning – it was a fabulous experience. I was one of the first to draw in CAD which gave an advantage in terms of finding work.” This advantage resulted in Prakasen leaving teaching in 2004 to practice full time with a focus on green building. The firm now employs 26 staff members, mainly based in Durban, with a satellite office in Johannesburg. “We design most of our work in Durban because I personally like to oversee whatever goes out to Johannesburg and Cape Town clients,” he admits.

Good architecture is green

“Good basic architecture is green anyway,” he says wryly. “It teaches you to orient a building correctly from the start. The same pragmatic principles apply to Feng Shui; it’s all based on the understanding that people don’t want to sleep in a hot or cold room. It is also the simple philosophy behind successful Bauhaus design which prescribes that form follows function.” Green architecture underlies everything PGA does, whether it be a domestic building or one for a University, such as the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal

Prakasen explains that this concept applies to everything from domestic residences, hotels and


PRACTISE PROFILE

even into corporate brand architecture.. The firm has put these principles into o practice in a number of commercial,, n mixed use, hospitality and education buildings for the Umhlanga Ridgee New Town Centre and the Universityy n of KwaZulu-Natal among others. “In the Coastlands Umhlanga Hotel and d Convention Centre we implemented a number of energy saving techniques.. For instance it has a low maintenance,, double ventilated façade which also o acts as a sunscreen to reduce heatt loading protection. The externall cladding system incorporates a high h percentage of recycled materials.” The design incorporates simpler, lesss fragmented forms in a bold design n that has drawn attention and done wonders for the brand. “It’s radical in its form, so it really stands out,” describes Prakasen. “The rooms are situated around a central hub, and it will ultimately house a rooftop restaurant with 180 degree views of the coastline. Its avant garde multi-functional style has drawn a number of high-end anchor tenants, such as Harley Davidson and MTN.”

Social conscience

Prakasen adds that many of these principles have also been applied in the Kingsmead Office Park, One on Herrwood and Urban Park, some of the company’s current projects. “More and more clients and end-users are demanding green buildings,” Prakasen emphasises. “Government and Eskom drives to create a green consciousness are paying off. Home owners are asking how the passive and active green design will save energy and water and it is not just about money but more about social conscience,” he assures us. “Our government is really focusing on issues that affect future consequences. People used to destroy the environment and leave; now this isn’t possible anymore. You need strong environmental legislation to protect the natural and historic environment. Frankly, I wish the regulations had come in ten years earlier, but it’s never too late to start. When you’ve been travelling in Africa and come back, you realise how good we have it here. I think, the recession was good for building as it stopped the negative effects of rampant consumerism and calmed prices down, making building affordable again. In addition, green technology is stimulating growth, ushering in a new more sustainable period of invention. “Some of our leading designers are turning to alternative materials to speed up the building process. We have a country that’s desperately short of skills and resources, and alternative materials and techniques can make all the difference”. In a bid to overcome skills issues, along with maintaining control over projects, the firm is also a

Just because it prevents pollution doesn’t mean it can’t be attractive

licenced contractor. “We are CIDB accredited to design, supply and install on projects,” Prakasen continues. “It makes us something of a one-stopshop and has won us some substantial tenders.” Among these corporate clients were the NHBRC training and conference centre in Shoshunguve, the Cape Town and Durban offices of Bidvest, as well as architecture, procurement and final handover of the NPSS offices.

We don’t have skills to produce quality houses in a conventional manner “We’re going to need to build like the Americans and Australians because we don’t have skills to produce quality houses in a conventional manner. However, the biggest problem is getting users acceptance of new materials and techniques. Humans have an amazing ability to adapt and as architects we see these things in practice. It’s a very exciting field to be in.” Prakasen Govender, PGA Architects, Tel. 031 563 4000, Fax. 031 564 8361, Email. info@pgarchitects.co.za

and empires within the confines of the estate’s CBD. When the autumn years approach, residents can even make plans to move to one of two on-site retirement villages, fully equipped with the estate’s hospital and clinic facilities. And, the circle-of-life is key when it comes to Waterfall Country Estate. It is the country’s first mixed-use development that follows basic environmental guidelines allowing it to reduce its overall carbon footprint by up to 60%.

Space to build offices and empires within the confines of the estate’s CBD Green living

Recycling plants on the estate capture, clean and reuse rain and storm water. A Sasol Home Gas system provides around 70% of the household energy requirements, while solar water heaters further reduce electricity consumption. All buildings within the estate need to conform to agreed-upon standards that include the use of energy efficient and environmentally friendly building materials, as well as making use of green building methods that harness the elements to create comfortable indoor environments. Traditionally these “green” products and services are hard to find, but not surprisingly, Century Property Developers and its partners have brought the procurement of these goods and services into the estate with the establishment of the Waterfall Green Design Centre.

Managed by Decorex SA, the Waterfall Green Design Centre is an all-inclusive expo centre and resource hub for green sustainable living. This first-of-its-kind exhibition allows all products to be viewed, touched and tested by the home owner. The products and services are even vetted for their green credentials in line with the Green Design Centre’s standards. Sounds idyllic but there’s a 99-year time limit, after that, the land reverts to Waterfall Estates.

SUSTAINABILITY

Right Here in Africa dhk architects has won the Architectural Competition for the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies in Kenya. The winning design was unveiled by Dr Achim Steiner, Executive Director of UNEP accompanied by Dr Reuben Mutiso, Chairman of the panel of international jurors, at an awards ceremony held in Nairobi.

T

he ‘Green Campus’ will be the home of the Institute for Peace & Environmental Studies (WMI) of Noble Peace Prize Laureate, Prof Wangari Maathai. Located on a steeply sloping 50-acre site at the University of Nairobi Kabete campus, the WMI is envisaged as a functional and inspiring hub of activities in the area of natural resource management and education for sustainable development. The institute is expected to meet stringent sustainability and conservation criteria, aiming to achieve close to 100% carbon neutrality and self-sufficiency.

Aiming to achieve close to 100% carbon neutrality and self-sufficiency Receiving the award, dhk director, Peter Stokes says they are overwhelmed to have won the opportunity to design the Institute. He commends his partners in the consortium, Land Use Consultants of the UK, Turner Townsend and the WSP Group.

Bold and throrough

The jurors’ report commended dhk architects for the boldness of their design and the thoroughness

in resolving the different aspects of the scheme from concept to detail. Project advisor and jury member, Phillip Kungu says, “We were particularly impressed with the land use master plan, the sensitive treatment of ecological issues and the extensive handling of sustainable design concepts. The winning design was unanimous,” he concludes. Dr Justin Snell of dhk who led the design said, “The competition was an inspiring experience, and provided a singular opportunity to utilise the team's joint experience to deliver a thoroughly integrated approach incorporating land management to architecture and engineering. Our aim was to give expression to the vision of Wangari Maathai and to embody the values and principles of the Green Belt Movement by approaching the site, landscape and architecture in terms of long-term stewardship, sustainable management of resources, education and empowerment.” The location, form and massing of the WMI formed one of the key strategic design decisions of the dhk entry.

A step on the path

At the heart of the dhk scheme is the welcoming and dignified democratic space sheltered by a tensile canopy roof supported on tripod ‘tree-like’ columns evoking the tree planting work of the GBM and the three legs of the traditional African stool seen by Maathai as representing ‘democratic space, sustainable and accountable management, and ‘cultures of peace’. Land Use Consultants from the United Kingdom, who were responsible for the Eden project in Cornwall, says of the design, “The ‘Green Campus’ will be a dynamic educational and practical landscape showcasing and demonstrating sustainable techniques in natural resource management, agriculture and production as a step on the path to sustainable human development through peace and democracy.”

Tremendous accolade

“Receiving this commission is a tremendous accolade and a tribute to the foresight and creativity of the many talented architects working at dhk,” says Derick Henstra, Chairman of dhk Architects. “Perhaps, more gratifying to us is the inroads that we are able to make towards designing and building sustainable and environmentally responsible architecture here in Africa that is relevant and has the primary objective of serving the people and communities of the continent while still protecting

NOISE POLLUTION

Turn it up!

It’s 2am, the party next door began at six and it’s still in full swing. With the prospect of a sleepless night ahead, calling security seems like a good option but will most probably end up in a nasty neighbourhood feud.

I

n an era where communal living is unavoidable, there must surely be a solution to the problem that doesn’t involve flipping the switch on the townhouse complex power supply. “Architect and Specificator” speaks to Jean Knoppersen, Director of the Pro Acoustic Consortium, for some answers. “As can be expected, noise is unavoidable in built up areas, particularly when a large building is constructed, or alternatively when you just have very noisy neighbours,” explains Jean. “But there are standards that have to be met with regard to buildings as well as residential areas.”

A roof can literally act as a speaker depending on the material used

Bad weather is also a cause of unwanted noise

When we pose the question of potential acoustic insulation for the home, for a music studio, for example, Jean’s advice is simple. “Don’t do it,” he laughs. “If you must then the room needs to be sealed off from the public so that the sound is completely contained within. The problem with certain rooms or buildings is that they all have weak areas. “These are generally windows, doors and roof, which must be correctly sealed to prevent sound emission. A roof can literally act as a speaker depending on the material used. Meanwhile, most doors have gaps and ordinary window glass is fairly inefficient in terms of sound dampening. Some solutions are acoustic glass, specialised roofing, dry walling and customised doors with seals.

How much is too much?

Bustling businesses

However, “there’ll always be noise that disrupts some and not others,” Jean smiles. “If you want to have a noisy party, band practice or just scream outside, your best bet is to get approval from your neighbours. Let them know when it starts and when it ends and make sure that they’re happy with the arrangement. But remember after ten pm you are risking legal action.”

“Once we have done sound measurements, it’s our job to come up with the solution to keep external noise out of the building while containing noise within the building. There is no one solution and

Jean explains that noise level requirements differ when it comes to different areas and projects. “The accepted noise level in a rural residential area will be very different from that in the central business district and so forth. Generally local council handles problems or specifications in residential areas in terms of Gauteng noise nuisance legislature, but we do get called if sound measurements are required.”

All buildings, whether an office block, hotel or even a warehouse, must comply with noise level requirements specified by the South African National Standards 10301-2008 rating. For example, the internal noise level in a factory should be below 85dB(A). In such instances, the Pro Acoustic Consortium will be assigned to evaluate the situation. “We analyse the building in terms of the noise that it could cause, and what external noises may disturb the building occupants in accordance with the South Africa national standards rating,” explains Jean.

New Dr Chris Mulder, one of South Africa’s foremost land planners and urban designers and a highly innovative property developer, received the highest honour awarded by his alma mater, Texas A&M University, in April.

C

hris obtained his doctorate in environmental planning and urban design at Texas A&M in 1980 and undertook post-doctoral studies at Harvard Graduate School of Design and at the University of Massachusetts before returning to South Africa.

Texas A&M University also has six Masters students in Architecture currently in South Africa, working on the design of a potential Satelite campus for Study Abroad programs for their colleges or faculties of architecture, agriculture and veterinary and community health services. The idea is to establish a satellite campus at Chris’s latest property development, the revolutionary agri-village Crossways Farm Village on the heights above the Van Staden’s River canyon near Port Elizabeth.

an integral part of your development. The model you have conceived has been acknowledged by the Minister as a potential role model to uplift other rural communities in South Africa.” The R3,4bn Crossways Farm Village, which has been described as a far-reaching departure from conventional residential developments, will be fully integrated with an existing dairy farm. The development will be a modern interpretation of a rural village of yesteryear, but offering all the conveniences of contemporary town living. Some 15% of the 747 stands are intended for affordable housing. Crossways Farm Village had the unusual distinction of being approved by the Eastern Cape government last year without a single precondition attached. Earlier, it had also received the blessing of the national department of agriculture. Mulder had said earlier the operations of the dairy farm would be scientifically based and professionally run. “Once it is fully operational and generating profits, it will be ceded, debt-free, to the development. Income will be split equally between the future homeowners’ e association, the farm management and a the t farm workers. “The village has been designed against “ the t background of the increasing awareness of the importance for the future of n safe s access to food and water, and of the need to live with the land in a sustainn able a manner. Everything is being done to ensure we make the best possible use of e natural resources such as solar energy, n while rain water will be harvested off w roofs, stored and used for irrigation. And r the t timber salvaged during the removal of o alien vegetation will all be re-used on the development for garden furniture, t fences, street lamps, etc.” f

In March Chris was informed by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform that Crossways Farm Village, together with the deprived neighbouring village of Thornhill, is to be declared a Comprehensive Rural Development Site (CRDS). The department wrote: “We see the development as a first in South Africa where you as private investors have come up with a unique concept and method to fully involve and integrate impoverished rural communities as beneficiaries in skills development, sustainable and on-site training as

Two T years ago Mulder was also honoured by b the Institute for Landscape Architecture in Southern Africa (ILASA) as an icon of landscape architecture in South Africa. In its 50-year history only three of its members have been honoured in this way. On the same occasion his best-known design and planning for property development, Thesen Islands in the Knysna lagoon, received the Institute’s highest honour, its President’s Award for excellence in design. Since the completion of Thesen Islands he has been working on a number of new residential projects which he believes will create rural development nodes that will help slow the move to urban areas.

Crossways Farm Village

Against this background Mulder developed a concept he calls New Ruralism, combining residential property development with agriculture. In addition to Crossways Farm Village his firm is involved in similar projects at Kurland in the Southern Cape and at Velddrif on the West Coast. “These projects, planned to have a high labour content, will not only stimulate job creation but in all instances the land on which the development is

undertaken as well as the farming operations will rest in a company of which the farm workers will all own a third. In this way we want to promote land ownership among people who, for the most part, are currently unemployed,” Chris concludes.

Made to Measure The complex task of measuring and fitting custom frameless shower doors has put off numerous glass specialists who have found the potential for error to be too risky for profit margins.

W

ith the advent of software designed to automate the task, however, the process is becoming more accessible, particularly now that a local option is readily available. “Architect & Specificator” chats to Alon Gordon, of Schematech, who describes his company’s ‘Made-to-Measure’ programme which is tailor-made to assist professionals in this area.

Complex calculations

“Today, the majority of shower enclosures in middle to upper market homes are customised frameless enclosures”, he explains. “The process of measuring for materials is complex and includes numerous variables. Apart from the fact that glass measurements need to accommodate seams and flex, a variable combination of components (from the approximately fifty separate components used in frameless systems) needs to be included in the fitment. There is a tremendous amount of intellectual property in terms of getting the glass to fit correctly.”

A tidal wave of interest and there’s huge faith in the programme

Complete product

area are generally those who Alon Gordon are prepared to spend hours calculating requirements. “A small backlog means that customers can land up waiting days for a quote”. As the shower door software gains ground, this is set to change.

Point and click

“We’re improving Made-to-Measure by the day and we’ve already been at it for five years. From fairly humble beginnings, it now literally offers ‘point and click’ functionality,” he elaborates. “It will calculate precise technical glass drawings, specify components, provide a quotation and produce a ‘to-scale’ 3-D drawing. Customers are already accustomed to this sort of service from the kitchen design sector and they expect it from bathroom design too. Now it’s possible. The designer can go to site with a laptop and design and quote on the spot.” While Alon admits that the software was slow to take off, market acceptance has increased dramatically. “We’re seeing a tidal wave of interest and there’s huge faith in the programme,” he says with enthusiasm. “Companies which previously didn’t touch the frameless shower sector are now seeing opportunities for expanding into the area.”

Local support

The problem is exacerbated by the fact that toughened safety glass is required for these doors. Once cut to size and put through the toughening process, it cannot be adjusted to fit if the sizes are incorrect. “The material is incredibly expensive and getting just one piece of glass wrong can mean losing thousands of Rands. You can literally lose the profit of your entire job with a couple of inaccuracies, and with so much potential for human error, the odds are not in your favour.”

Although the software is not unique to the global market, it’s the only local product of its kind, giving it an advantage over competitive brands. “There’s a Canadian product available, which is tethered to a specific range of components,” he tells us. “Ours, however is built on an open platform, allowing users to specify any components they prefer. An Australian version has a similar approach, but since the technology is quite technical and requires a fair measure of user support, we’re able to offer this more readily to local clients.”

Alon adds that the specialists who excel in the

This alternative trend in water heating works on the reverse principle of that of an airconditioner, extracting ambient heat from the atmosphere to heat the refrigerant, which is then pumped into a heat exchange condenser to heat water in a domestic electric water heater or solar water heater. The end result is water heated for approximately one third of the electrical usage of an electric water heater. The free environment energy extracted from the ambient heat, provides approximately 75% of the heat pumps heating energy.

proficient with the package, it is possible for even nonspecialist staff to use it. “Given the correct measurements, an office administrator could provide a rough quote over the phone in minutes,” he says. In the past, the process would require hours of on-site work from a qualified staff member, whose time could be more profitably spent on an active project. Built-in safety features and error-checking provide the assurance that designs won’t include problems such as doors that are too high, too wide or too heavy to be safe. “There’s tremendous value in this,” emphasises Alon. “When you’re dealing with huge panes of glass, incorrect calculations can be dangerous.”

Made to Measure software for a perfect fit

Monthly fees

The software is available for a monthly user fee with no contractual obligations, so designers can simply discontinue use if they no longer need access. “We provide regular updates to include new components and technology,” he elaborates. “We’re very responsive to our users, who drive our product development.” Additional functionality includes full integration with Pastel accounting while future plans will hopefully see Made-to Measure incorporated more integrally into the design process. “We’re working towards similar offerings for balustrades, shopfronts and other specialised applications,” Alon adds.

Precise technical glass drawings, specify components, provide a quotation and produce a ‘to-scale’ 3-D drawing “The uptake from the market has been so positive that we’re constantly seeing demand for more applications. Also, many of our users are architectural glass specialists who want to do more than showers.

ARCHITECTURAL HARDWARE

Lock It Down South Africa’s preoccupation with security should make us an ideal market for the latest advances in locking technology, however we still have a little way to go before we’re entirely comfortable with ridding ourselves of our cumbersome collections of keys.

N

evertheless, Yale has introduced a range of digital locks that have already seen tremendous success abroad and look set to change local attitudes towards the technology. “Architect & Specificator” spoke to Clint Jones, marketing and product manager, and Matthew de Gersigny, residential specifier, at Yale to find out more about the products. “Korea has been running successfully key-free for the past four years and we’re confident that South Africa is geared to follow suit,” says Clint.”

Weather-proof digital system which runs off standard batteries

Clint Jones, product and marketing manager of Yale

Electromechanical locks

A division of Assa Abloy, the company already supplies everything from speciality systems such as airport door closers and hotel key-cards down to basic retail brands. “The YDR3110 Gateman digital door lock is an electromechanical door lock tailored for residential and small business applications,” he continues.

Keypads of the future

Smart system


ARCHITECTURAL HARDWARE

Essentially a ‘new age’ version of what most would call the old ‘Yale’ lock (night latch), the new model is a weather-proof digital system which runs off standard batteries. Occupants are able to unlock doors quickly and easily utilising a simple pin number or smart card which is programmed through a user-friendly device on the inside of the door. Batteries will last for a 12 month cycle based on daily use by a family of four, however a simple external emergency battery facility is included to operate the door in the event of batteries running flat unexpectedly. “It’s not a low-end system,” admits Matt. “It’s more likely to be used in upmarket developments with an emphasis on security. However it’s viable to include it in mid-range apartments which may only require one lock per unit.” Like the old ‘Yale’ Night Latch locks, an override button allows the door to be set in either a locked (auto locking) or unlocked mode which will take precedence over the use of pin or card when necessary. Safety options are also included, with the lock set to open automatically in the event of an internal fire, while remaining impervious to external heat should someone attempt to burn the lock off from the outside.

Gate keepers

The next model up the ranks comes in the form of the Gateman mortice lock operating with both card, pin and manual override key. Here, the lock is fitted with an override key that will effectively lock the door against any other means of ingress.

Should you suspect that someone is trying to catch a glimpse of your code, you can add extra numbers to fool them “An extra feature that’s particularly smart is the dummy pin function,” adds Clint, demonstrating the technique on a lock model. “Should you suspect that someone is trying to catch a glimpse of your code, you can add extra numbers to fool them, keying in as many digits as you want, as long as your pin is included, in sequence, in the mix.” Would-be intruders with hopes of using high-tech fingerprint lifting to steal your pin will also be foiled. The door only unlocks after your pin has been entered followed by a hand swipe over the keypad, removing any fingerprints from the surface. The lock is fitted with an alarm in case of tampering, while the inside handle features a button which can be depressed to ensure that the handle can’t be manipulated from the outside.

Smart card

Card access is equally safe for use. The swipe card works off RFID technology which can also be fitted into a handy key tag and attached to a keyring or kept in a wallet or purse. “It saves you having to

Future developments will see the introduction of a biometric unit which is currently being tested in the local market. “Biometrics is the next logical step,” he smiles, “and this unit will also talk to you.” Similar technology is used in the company’s range of fire safes, which are designed to hold A4 documentation and cash. “They can withstand 1 hour of temperatures of 927°C without damage to the contents,” Clint assures us.

Transition phase

Yale also plans to launch a ‘code handle’ in the near future, which may serve as a useful transition product for those reluctant to take the leap into digital locking immediately. The unit incorporates discrete buttons on the internal handle which can be programmed with up to nine codes. Clint adds that it’s not intended for high level security, but rather as a ‘passage mode’ lock for inter-office purposes. The product is available with a locking unit, along with ordinary door handles which match the code version for continuity of design. Yale has certainly done its homework in terms of providing the right product for our local conditions. All that’s left is for South African’s to overcome their need to cling to their keys.

Simple for the user, hard for the crook


The ultimate test of any technology is how seamlessly it fits into everyday life. Yale’s range of digital locks has been created to do exactly that. Every aspect of its function has been thought out and designed with lifestyle in mind. The RF key is both convenient and highly secure, whilst the keypad offers a backup solution should you forget your RF key or accidentally lock the door. The lock also boasts an alarm, which sounds if anyone tries to tamper or force the device. The consequence of this intelligence in design is sleek, elegant and highly secure product. Proof that true style is a result of sophistication.

CLADDING AND COATINGS

Full Metal Jacket

Metropolitan University London

With cladding being the current blue-eyed boy of the architectural world, the technique is appearing in an increasing number of guises, from traditional stone to glass and even steel. While it’s favoured in new builds, those in the know tout it as an excellent means of upgrading a building without incurring vast construction costs, a fact which appeals to developers and investors.

W

hen “Architect & Specificator” speaks to Jason Naude at Rimex Metals he explains that metal cladding has taken off with many of the big corporates. “We’ve done projects for Investec and Vodaworld, as well as airports, which gel well with the clean straight lines of cladding. Our cladding has also found favour with food and retail stores which sport their own specific identities. On the international front, we’ve worked on a number of iconic projects, such as the Seattle Museum.” Jason assures us there are numerous residential applications too. He tells us about the company’s range of exterior wall and column cladding products. “We have numerous options available,” he says. “Whether it’s clean cut or retro, we can supply it to meet the client’s spec. Although we have a standard range, we can also design bespoke options to give a building its own unique look.”

Material not only has an aesthetic function but offers weather protection too Corporate clients

“The material not only has an aesthetic function but also offers weather protection,” he continues. “It also has excellent thermal insulation properties, and some products can enhance structural strength by as much as 45%, allowing the use

Jason explains that the company uses stainless steel for its green properties, as well as its low maintenance requirements. “It’s corrosion-resistant and easy to clean, requiring no harmful solvents. In addition to having an extended lifespan, it’s 100% recyclable and already contains about 60% recycled material.”

Company uses stainless steel for its green properties, as well as its low maintenance requirements Recent projects include most of the international airports, which required high abuse, high lifecycle products to avoid wear and tear, and reduce maintenance costs. “In addition, we provided our anti-vandal products to Sandton City, for its security and aesthetic qualities. Rosebank and Menlyn used it for similar reasons,”he adds. Apparently there’s also a big move in the hospitality sector with numerous hotels and restaurants opting for steel cladding for design purposes.

On a more practical note, Rimex’s highly polished products were used in the soccer stadia in place of mirrors. “Our metal was used as mirrors to avoid the problem of broken glass and the subsequent issue of public liability,” Jason explains.

GLASS & GLAZING

A Chance to Shine It’s easy to see why the spectacular new building at 15 Alice Lane, Sandton, was nicknamed “Dancing Towers’ by the team responsible for its design and construction. Its dramatic, curved silhouette, combined with the striking black and white glass of its façade, make this new Sandton landmark look like it is, quite literally, dancing on the skyline. It’s this unique facade that makes Colin Gardner of Grinaker-LTA Façades glow with pride. Colin Gardner

T

he iconic 15 Alice Lane Towers consists of two curvaceous towers linked by an atrium. Each tower has glazed wings which cantilever 2.5 metres past their gable ends. "It is a building with a dynamic shape that pushes the architectural form," Colin notes. "The architects wanted a glazing effect using black and white glass to simulate falling paper," he explains. Enter Grinaker-LTA Façades, which rose to the challenge of manufacturing and installing a curtain wall to meet this requirement. The unitised glazing system was selected as erected without the need for scaffolding.

Curved “underbelly”

Colin says that challenges abounded on this project, but his team consistently came up with innovative solutions. One particularly testing element of the contract was catering for the building having a curved "underbelly" on the lower levels, while the upper levels almost act as a rooflight. "Conventional post-and-panel systems would not have worked because they would not have got around the curved ‘belly’ of each façade. By using an innovative unitized system, we achieved the extremely demanding time-lines required to complete this testing installation within the time-frame required."

Contending with the fact that the starting point of this installation was actually in mid-air Different size

Outlining this challenging time frame, and highlighting some staggering statistics, Colin reports that the first unit was installed on 1 October 2009, and the last unit went in on 24 July 2010. "A total of 9 569 square metres of glass incorporated into 2 997 curtain wall units makes up the glass façades. Each curtain wall unit weighed around 600 kg and most are over 2m wide. Our glass supplier (GSA) invested in the latest state-of-the-art machinery to do the fritting of such large pieces of glass. "Every single row of glass is a different size, with varying combinations of glass type (pattern and colour). This presented a massive challenge when manufacturing the curtain wall units. Quality checks and balances of the highest order were required in order to meet this challenge. The use of barcoding assisted us greatly in achieving this end."

A further challenge for Grinaker-LTA Façades was contending with the fact that the starting point of this installation was actually in mid-air (above the atrium entrance level). "The atrium area is 10 storeys in height, the towers are joined with link bridges, and each floor is at a different angle to the bridge below," Colin explains. "This creates a fan-like effect. Interfacing the internal, with each bridge link being different, required ingenuity in terms of glass alignment and closures."


GLASS & GLAZING

Dramatic effect

A major innovation on this project was how GrinakerLTA tackled the east and west elevations, where darkgrey glass has been utilised with dramatic effect, to create slashes across the façades. "This was achieved by the introduction of 400mm-deep composite paneled boxes ('pillows'). Each and every one was a different shape and size, and was mechanically fixed to a unitized curtain wall. Here, the curtain wall incorporating the angular 'slashed' glazing acted as the weather line. We assisted the project team in terms of the design and development of this innovation," Colin explains. The blocks keep the heat out of the sides that are most exposed to the sun and the slot windows are reset by 400 mm. The original vertical slot windows developed into cut-outs in the façade.

More complex curtain walls that I foresee becoming increasingly commonplace in the industry "The inspiring and dramatic effect at 15 Alice Lane would certainly not have been achieved using the brickwork that was originally considered," he stresses.

Cleaning and maintenance

A major consideration on all high rise buildings is the cleaning and any maintenance repairs to the façade that might be required during the life of the building. The curved façade of Alice Lane Towers presented its fair share of challenges in this regard. To overcome these, Grinaker-LTA Façades has incorporated specially designed, concealed guide rails into the unitized glazing system, to carry a glass replacement carriage and cradle. Abseiling cleaners using a rope-rigging system combined with the guide rails will be used for façade cleaning.

Environmental impact consideration

Alice Lane Towers is more than just a pretty face, however. Its energy efficient curtain wall has also resulted in this new landmark standing out as a "green" building, which represents significant cost savings for the occupants. With environmental impact a burgeoning consideration on many new building projects, Grinaker-LTA Façades ensures that energy efficiency is always one of the top criteria when their input is sought on the design and development of new projects. Colin adds, “Alice Lane Towers was no exception”. He reports that during the initial design stages, the newly-launched pilot version of the Green Star rating tool to enhance energy-efficient design practice was used. “15 Alice Lane outperforms most conventional buildings in terms of its energy efficiency, falling just 25 kWh/m2 short of the South African National Standard 204 requirement of 200 kWh/m2,” he notes. Several factors contributed to achieving this low level of consumption, including the use of


GLASS & GLAZING

low-E performance double glazed façades. Fritting the façade panels to create shading, wellinsulated spandrel panels, minimal glazing on the east and west façades, as well as deep-set windows on these façades to maximize shading, also helped. In addition, Colin elaborates, the recessed “slashed” windows, which are reset by 400 mm, keep the heat out of the sides that are most exposed to the sun.

‘Suit of clothes’

“This is a project that we are very proud to be able to stand back and admire now, and say: ‘we did that’,” he enthuses. “We learnt a lot. From the complexities of doing a curved facade, to the intricacies of putting a ‘suit of clothes’ onto split high-rises joined by a large glazed atrium. We played a pivotal role in the design and development of the complete facade, and we rose to challenges that were big, but never insurmountable. Having successfully completed this project, I am confident that we are well-equipped to tackle the more complex curtain walls that I foresee becoming increasingly commonplace in the industry,” Colin concludes.

INSULATION

The Little Things Count… “Insulation isn’t such a dark and ominous subject,” laughs Mike Bywater when “Architect & Specificator” chats to him. The MD of Global Innovative Building Systems has a pragmatic approach to construction and the ways in which designers can create more efficient buildings.

A

s a company, we supply insulation for any application, from sophisticated products for extreme situations, such as high temperature environments, to more conventional insulation materials,” he says. “I’ve found that although there are those who have concerns about the technicalities of adhering to SANS 204 requirements, most managers have the knowledge to calculate all the necessary R-values. To simplify the process, all the materials are supplied with this information as standard. You just add up the specs of the individual products to get your total R-Value.

Global Innovative Building Systems’ Shingle Roofing System is an example of an efficient product that requires no energy to function. It allows free extraction of air from the roof void to facilitate efficient air circulation

Consider the amount of energy and water that is wasted each day waiting for your water to heat up when you turn the tap on Making a difference

“I believe it’s the little details that can make the real difference, however,” Mike smiles. “Insulation


INSULATION

regulations have been set out by SANS with deemed to satisfy parameters or you can achieve an R-value through rational design, which can apply to both new builds and retrofits. This covers issues such as double-glazing, insulation in ceilings and wall cavities, among other things, which most builders will already be aware of.

Allows free extraction of air from the roof void to facilitate efficient air circulation “But it’s also possible to incorporate some smart design to refine things even further. Consider the amount of energy and water that is wasted each day waiting for your water to heat up when you turn the tap on. The few minutes it takes for hot water to reach the basin can add up to many thousands of litres every day. Simply by insulating pipes, water and energy can be saved. When it comes to energy efficiency, it’s important to remember that every little bit helps.”

Location specific

Back on the topic of insulation, Mike adds that different results can be achieved with various products in different areas. “It’s difficult to specify in Joburg because the temperature variation is so vast; we can drop from balmy to freezing in a matter of hours. Ideally, you want something that will be warm in winter and cool in summer, and first prize goes to the products that allow this to happen without consuming energy. “We have a Shingle Roofing System from the States that allows free extraction of air from the roof void to facilitate efficient air circulation. It’s positioned over the ridge cap on the roof sheathing with

shingles laid over the top, creating a vent through which hot air can escape. The sheathing has a radiant heat barrier which prevents the ingress of radiant heat during the day and allows the heat to dissipate at night so you start each day with a cool roof, which equates to a cooler home. The beauty is that it’s a passive system, requiring no energy to run.”

Floors also get a look-in, and Mike admits that although he’s installed underfloor heating in his own home, rising energy costs make it expensive to operate. “You can achieve very satisfactory results simply by insulating under the floor,” he says. “A layer of expanded polystyrene insulation can effectively minimise the cold that creeps up through the slab.”

Housing styles

Mike has also stayed on top of current housing trends that focus on the use of effective insulation. Steel frame buildings fall into this category and Global Innovative Building Systems has made inroads into the field. “I believe that this building method lends itself to the creation of thermally efficient buildings. All the acoustic and thermal values are already factored in. Add double-glazing

Insulating pipes can improve energy efficiency in the simplest way

and you’ll have a pretty thermally efficient design, with the additional advantage of speed of erection. “There’s a lot going on at the moment that will see great changes in the way we construct our buildings. Much of it will require an adjustment in thinking, but in many instances, it’s as easy as keeping an eye on the basics,” he concludes. “And remember, the best insulation in the world will not be optimally effective if doors and windows do not seal properly.” Mike Bywater, Global Innovative Building Systems, Tel. 011 903 7080, Fax. 086 634 7850, Email. mike@gissa. co.za, Website. www.gissa.co.za

RESTORATION

Preserving Our Precious Past

From Colonial, Cape Dutch, Indian and Oriental to Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco, the architecture of Kwa-Zulu Natal is a treasure trove of the area’s rich history and multicultural diversity. Unfortunately, over time and due to weathering as well as a lack of adequate care, a number of the province’s architecturally notable buildings have fallen into disrepair.

T

o ensure authentic and accurate restoration, specialist contractor GVK-Siya Zama, with its long-standing reputation and expertise in this field, has, over the years, been enlisted to carry out repairs and restorative work on a multitude of KZN’s historical landmarks. According to group managing director, Dumisani Madi, “The restoration of historic structures is very important. It ensures that our cultural inheritance survives, not only contributing to the legacies of the towns and provinces in which they stand, but also to the rich heritage of our country.” “Over the years we have worked on hundreds of historical buildings from small Victorian houses to major landmarks such as the Supreme Court, Durban and Pietermaritzburg Post Offices, Alexandra Road Police Station, Provincial Legislative Buildings and the Durban City Hall”, says Dumisani. “Restorations such as these are complex projects which include ensuring that repairs to components, such as brickwork and mouldings, match existing finishes as closely as possible.

“Most of these buildings were built in the late 1800’s and we often have to employ the same methods and materials originally used - a challenging task since most of these materials are no longer in production and have not been for many years. “We are fortunate to be able to call on Szerelmey, our sister company in the UK, for advice. They are renowned for their expertise in stonework and have restored countless historical landmarks in the UK.” While the work may have its challenges, the GVKSiya Zama team continues to lend a bit of spit and polish to KZN’s architectural gems. Recent work has included two interesting projects in Pietermaritzburg at the Colonial Building Complex and Villa Sans Souci, a national monument in Pentrich. Dumisani elaborates, “The ornate and intricately detailed Colonial Building had been vacant for a number of years and, prior to the start of this project, had been occupied by vagrants. The building had deteriorated dramatically, was pilfered of intricate lead and copper mouldings, priceless historical

News & Views “Intelligent” windows naturally cool

More than 50% of worldwide primary energy demand is consumed by airconditioning buildings. Mechanical ventilations and airconditioning systems are real electricity eaters. Not to mention the space they require and the investment and maintenance costs, which are around 30% higher than for natural ventilation systems. Innovative energy saving solutions are urgently needed. The topic of natural ventilation with automated windows is therefore becoming increasingly important.

A typical solar hot water system installed using PFG Prosun Solar glass

Branded Prosun Solar, this low iron product allows for greater thermal energy transmission when compared with clear glass. The reduction of iron allows more efficient thermal energy transmission through the glass in order to heat up the fins within the panel, instead of it being absorbed by the iron.

Geze’s ventilation drive systems for every conceivable window shape, type and size, including skylights and light domes are easy and convenient to operate. Apart from drives for window automation, smoke and heat exhaust ventilation systems (SHEVS) and natural smoke and heat exhaust ventilators (NSHEVs) are used for natural ventilation, in addition to their primary task of fast and efficient removal of smoke in the event of a fire.

Local solar panel glass

Advancements made in the solar water heating market are benefiting local solar system manufacturers. PFG has customised its high quality, extra clear, low iron patterned glass specifically for solar hot water systems.

PFG sales and marketing director, Bob van Schelt, says because Prosun Solar is a locally manufactured, quality product, panel manufacturers benefit through reduced working capital, thereby improving economies of scale and competitiveness. “By sourcing their glass requirements locally, solar system producers no longer need to carry large stocks of glass panels or tie up their cash flow in imports. They also reduce the risks associated with importing glass, while benefiting from improved supply chain management – specifically the flexibility and predictability that comes with shorter lead times and smaller, more frequent deliveries. Another significant advantage is the access they have to immediate technical support,” he expands. PFG manufactures Prosun Solar in 4mm thickness, but can also manufacture 3.2mm to order. Standard sizes apply, although alternative sizes are available on request. To date, PFG has supplied some 350 000 m2 of its solar glass into the domestic market. PFG is a division of the PG Group. www.pfg.co.za. Bob van Schelt, Tel 011 360 1000, Email: bvanschelt@pfg.co.za

World first water mist system

The renovated head office of consultancy and engineering firm DHV in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, is to be fitted with a unique water mist system that will make fires easier to control. The system produces a dense mist in the area where the office floors meet the building’s atrium space. This screen of water mist acts as a barrier in the event of an outbreak of fire, has a cooling effect and lessens smoke density. The soon-to-be installed system will be a world first as the technique is currently not applied anywhere else in this configuration. The water mist screen will replace the physical partitions that traditionally divide office buildings into multiple fire compartments. The system, which is intended for use in office buildings, was developed in-house by DHV. It is significantly cheaper than a sprinkler installation, requires less material, and is easier to install. DHV subjected the water mist system to a series of fire tests by constructing a partial model of an office floor for this purpose. A quantity of wood equivalent to the expected maximum fire load was then ignited in order to test the fire-retardant properties of the water mist system. The tests demonstrated that the water mist has the same fire-retardant effect as physical fire partitions.

Award-winning green insulation product, Eco-Insulation ready to be pumped into place in the roof

Cecil Homan, founder of visionary thermal insulation business, Eco-Insulation finds this a chilling thought, “We are firmly nailing our colours to the mast in the campaign against global warming - for our own sakes as well as for the futures of our children. “By placing Eco-Insulation Cellulose Fibre Ceiling Insulation in the roof, you are reducing your energy reliance on heating or cooling. You are also helping to recycle or upcycle a stream of paper waste, by converting it into an award-winning, SABS-approved, fire-rated thermal insulation. So Eco-Insulation truly deserves its green status. Our process of manufacture is low energy and adds little to the embedded energy of the recycled newsprint we use. In addition, we add the minimum of chemicals to the process, including only an environmentally friendly, chemically stable, fire retardant. This enables our product to be fire rated “No Spread of Flame” – Classified B/ B1/2,” says Cecil. In addition, government and developers need to think about low cost housing. “The fitting of solar geysers to many low cost housing projects is an admirable move, but true energy efficiency in low cost housing will only be effective where the roof is fitted with a ceiling that is insulated, too.” Eco-Insulation, Tel: +27 21 555 3766, Fax: +27 21 555 3776, E-mail: eco-insulation@telkomsa.net

Thanks to the water mist system, DHV will be able to retain the open look and feel of the head office.

News & Views City within a city

A new development totalling R11billion is in the pipeline for Century City where total investment to date has topped R16billion. Century City 2004

Record time

When quality flooring was required for a new ablution area in a building extension at the LR Plastics premises in Mobeni, Durban, the contractor specified the products of Sika. Time was of the essence, as the work had to be completed in December, traditionally a busy time for the client. Sealcon Systems, sub-contracted to main contractor Stefanutti Stocks, had only one week to finish the preparation and application of the floor coating for an area of around 350m2, which proved to be something of a challenge.

John Chapman, a director of the Rabie Property Group, says Century City has development rights totalling more than 1,25million square metres of which over 760 000 square metres has already been built and a further 93 000 square metres is currently under construction or in various stages of planning.

Due to the short completion time, Sika's high performance products and systems were selected for the ablution flooring. Sikafloor-20N PurCem (6 kits) was applied inside the showers to a thickness of 6mm. This product is a coloured polyurethane modified cement and aggregate screed suitable for floors subject to heavy loading, abrasion and chemical exposure.

“As we stand now the built form comprises 300 000 square metres of offices, more than 3 000 residential front doors and 150 000 square metres of retail as well as numerous leisure facilities including Ratanga Junction and hotels so what you see now is just over half of what this city within a city will constitute when it is fully developed. Century City 2010

Sikafloor-21N PurCem was used in the change room

John says that while there is generally a shortage of zoned land in Cape Town, they are in an enviable position of being able to immediately push the button on new development as and when the market dictates. “Furthermore, there are very few if any other nodes that can accommodate large corporate requirements for between 5 000 and 50 000 square metres of offices which we can. Many of these now demand state-of-the-art environmentally friendly (green) buildings as is the case with Aurecon whose new regional headquarters are under construction at Century City and which is on course to become the first four-star rated green building in Cape Town.” John Chapman, Rabie Property Group, Tel 021 550-7000 www.rabie.co.za

Sikafloor-21N PurCem (121 kits) was applied at a thickness of 4mm in all other areas of the ablution block, including the toilet and change room. Sikafloor-21N PurCem is a medium- to heavy-duty self-smoothing polyurethane screed that provides smooth, flat and decorative wearing surfaces. Sikafloor-29N PurCem (41 kits) was used for the covings around the floor area. This product is a coloured polyurethane-modified cement and aggregate mortar. Also required in the process were four kits of Sikafloor-156ZA, a low viscosity, two-part epoxy resin for priming concrete substrates, cement screeds and epoxy mortars.

News & Views Project lighting market

Eurolux is making its entry into the local project lighting sector with the offering of its first range of professional project lighting to retailers and wholesalers. Included in the range are high bays, pendants and downlights, ideal for commercial, retail and manufacturing environments, while certain items will also be suitable for use in high-end residential applications. Most of the lights come fitted with remote electronic control gear for greater energy efficiency, with two ranges that include a three-hour emergency back-up.

Calling the move a natural progression, Shaun Bouchier, director at Eurolux, says they have been planning their entry into the project lighting space for a while now, but

their focus was on finding the right products for the South African market. According to Shaun, a lot of thought has been given to reflector shape and finish, as these are some of the most crucial features in efficient project lighting. Hence the Eurolux range features reflectors made from highly efficient materials that ensures consistent reflector performance. The emergency backup battery offered on two of the ranges, are particularly useful in factories, retail stores and offices. “South Africa has its fair share of electricity outages and we also have to contend with load shedding, which is why these products that still offer 50% of their light output for a three-hour period, are proving so popular.� Shaun Bouchier, Eurolux, Tel: (021) 528 8400, Email: shaun. bouchier@eurolux.co.za


News & Views High strength columns

Lafarge is a key building materials supplier to the massive project to upgrade and reposition the landmark Sandton City shopping and office complex. The first phase which will cost an estimated R1, 77billion started in 2009 with completion planned for early November this year. It involves a total revitalisation of the existing shopping area, 30 000m² of retail space and provision of core structural elements to carry proposed future development, including a multi-storey residential component. The specified 90MPa compressive strength for Sandton City’s new columns is generally not attainable with normal cements. However, in 2008, Lafarge Cement introduced a unique product, Rapidcem, to the market. This high ultimate strength, high early strength cement was the first CEM II 52,5N to be offered to the local construction and precast industry. With its innovative extended formulation, Rapidcem completed Lafarge Cement’s range of environmentally-friendly ‘green’ cements. “With conventional cements we would normally expect to achieve at most concrete strengths of between 70 and 80MPa,” comments area manager for Lafarge Readymix, Reinier Tredoux. “We have based our mix for the Sandton City columns on 85% Rapidcem in combination with 15% of Ash Resources’ SuperPozzPro, an ultra-fine grade of classified fly ash. While achieving the challenging strength specifications, our concrete design also ensures a durable low maintenance result with the added benefit of superior finishes, contributing to the aesthetic demands of the country’s leading retail mall.” Additional information is available on the web site at www.lafarge.com

The Eskom eta Awards, which have attracted hundreds of entries in the nine major categories for 22 years, have made some changes in their repertoire, including the introduction of a new category “Energy Savings in Households” and some fresh ideas to attract further entries. Says Dr Steve Lennon, Divisional Executive: Eskom International at Eskom, “More and more South Africans are looking for ways to save energy – learners wanting to make a difference, householders cutting costs, engineers and large companies working hard to reduce their use of electricity and save vital resources. “There is a wealth of information available for someone who hopes to save on their household budget through cutting back on their largest expense – a geyser alone can contribute at least 70 percent to the household electricity bill.” Last year’s winner in the eta Awards’ Residential category, Geyserwise, already has a solution in this regard. The Geyserwise intelligent energy control system digitally programs,

monitors and controls a geyser’s energy consumption, and consumers can look forward to between 17 and 50% savings in both peak shifting and lower energy consumption. “It is innovations like these that started with the bright idea of one individual, and have progressed to over 80 000 units installed over the past 24 months, that have the power to make a remarkable difference on our electricity consumption as a nation,” he concludes. Entries are now open for the 22nd Eskom eta Awards and interested individuals and businesses can enter the innovation, industrial, commercial and residential; energy efficiency awareness (previously Power Fitness); Efficiency Champion: Industrial & Communities; Young Designers; and Energy Savings in Households (new) categories.

News & Views Careless and sloppy

                           

When a cyclone, a tornado or a hurricane hits, even well-constructed buildings may suffer damage. But, the heart-wrenching images in South Africa recently of schoolchildren working in the open because the roofs of their schools have been blown off are not as a result of nature but rather of shoddy and unacceptable building quality. This is the opinion of Dr Hennie de Clercq, executive director of the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (SAISC). “Roofs being blown off in this countr y are certainly not isolated incidents; people who are familiar with the building industr y know that many roofs are damaged by wind each year, including those of houses, commercial buildings, factories and other buildings. Low cost houses are particularly susceptible and the excuse is typically that there was a ‘tornado’, or some other ‘act of God’. Insurance companies normally seem to be quite happy with this explanation and, more often than not, pay out if the building is insured,� says de Hennie. “But the reality is that there are precious few tornadoes and no cyclones or hurricanes in South Africa - on average fewer than one per year hits a built-up area. It is extremely rare for a wind strong enough to blow off well-constructed roofs in this country. “The fact is that it is entirely possible and economically feasible to build roofs that are strong enough to survive the winds that are typically encountered here,� he says.

Making Steel fit your vision   !!% $"#



               

Why then is it that we have an epidemic of damaged roofs year after year? According to Hennie this can be attributed to carelessness and sloppiness. “Carelessness is basically where the developers, be they in government or in the private sector, do not ensure that quality materials and compliant workmanship are specified, while sloppiness comes about through a lack of supervision resulting in poor workmanship and general decline in standards,� he adds. He says that greed is the root of the problem. "This is clearly apparent, firstly, through the willingness of those responsible to use substandard roof sheets, screws and other items used for fixing the sheets to the structure and secondly, through those responsible taking all kinds of shortcuts like, for example, appointing contractors who can’t do the job properly and not getting professional advice.� SAISC, Hennie de Clercq, Tel: (011) 726 6111, Email: info@saisc.co.za, Website: www.saisc.co.za

‘Transparent cement’ Ongoing research in the field of cement-based cladding materials is increasing the “green” aspects of composite and sandwich panel systems, says Daniel van der Merwe, architect at the Cement & Concrete Institute (C&CI). Daniel says this trend is particularly evident at the Expo 2010 Shanghai where the Italian Pavilion is a prime example of new directions in cement-based cladding systems. The pavilion, designed by Giampaolo Imbrighi, uses new “transparent cement”. Each panel incorporates a matrix of transparent resin rods bonded into the cement, transmitting light without weakening the structure. About 40% of the pavilion’s façade is covered by 3 774 of the translucent panels.

“This is a further step towards more eco-friendly building materials,” says Enrico Borgarello, director of innovation at Italcementi, the Italian cement maker that developed the material. “The use of this cement permits less intensive use of artificial light inside the building because it lets the outside light filter in.” The resins, in various colours, react differently to artificial and natural light sources, creating a soft, warm light inside the building and a clear bright image on the outside. When the transparent cement facade is lit up at night, images of the dynamics of the building inside are projected to the city.

to a point where it comprises some 1 200 000 square metres of land, of which more than seventy percent has been developed in the form of eight, discrete business parks: Northlands Deco Park, Business Park, Commercial Park, Industrial Park, Production Park, Retail Park, Northlands Corner and Northriding Commercial Park. The complex consists of more than five hundred individual business units covering more than 700 000 square metres of floor area. Each Business Park has been designed, developed and constructed by Northlands Projects thereby ensuring that due attention is given to the aesthetic appeal and build quality of each business unit. “By far the majority of the construction consists of brick and steel clad steel structures designed to be used as production facilities, storage warehouses, factory showrooms, offices etc. Without doubt such structures dictate that some form of insulation be installed and we have, almost without exception fitted Alububble Roof Insulation in our buildings. Alububble is manufactured, distributed and supplied by Africa Thermal Insulations (ATI) and we have yet to find a better product to suit our needs,” says Darin D’Oliviera.

This was a world first in the industry. AfriSam, Victor Bouguenon, Tel: +27 011 670 5520, Website: www. afrisam.com

But space savings are not the only benefits of the system. Easy to install, the silos require only a power supply and a water connection. Wastage is thus reduced, while the reduced footprint means less negative impact on the environment. Used in conjunction with a continuous mixer, Pronto Dry Mortar will deliver two wheelbarrows per minute with zero waste. The continuous mixer is an automatic mixer coupled to the bottom of the silo with all the necessary electrical and water fittings to enable wet mortar to be produced at the touch of a button. Other cost-saving benefits are the silo’s lockability, thereby preventing theft, and its mix-on-demand features, saving time, reducing wastage and increasing productivity. An indicator mounted half way up on the silo shows the levels of dry mortar still remaining in the silo well in advance of the site running out of product. Re-ordering is also problem-free with a refill just a phone call away and delivery within 24 hours guaranteed anywhere in Gauteng. AfriSam's Eco Build Cement contains half the world's average carbon footprint as defined by the World Resources Institute and World Business Council for Sustainable Development

News & Views Design capital of the world?

(We couldn’t resist the grandiose claims of this press release). As part of Cape Town’s East City Design Initiative to develop on the fringes of the central business district, many run-down buildings in the area are being transformed to accommodate creative agencies in the design and media sector as well as to create an environment for young designers from all disciplines. The Fringe, as it’s now known, is Cape Town’s new innovation hub and aims to become the Design Capital of the World by 2014. The Fringe project is managed by The Cape Town Partnership and is already home to Cape Craft and Design Institute, Open Innovation Studios, a range of modestsized design and ICT firms, and CPUT’ FID, as well as the Cape Town Fashion Council situated in Harrington House. Ever since the forward-thinking urban planning ordinance was passed in 2001, dilapidated public spaces and buildings like Harrington House have undergone renovations with the aim to drive economic and social innovation. It’s due to these renovations that more individuals and businesses are excited about calling the Fringe their new home. The five storey office block, Harrington House in Barack Street, was one of the buildings targeted to receive a makeover. After being an eye-sore for a number of years the building’s weary interior and exterior have been renovated and updated to integrate it with the East City districts new and modern look. Taking just nine months to complete, its thanks to Devmark Design Interiors and Renovations together with Devmark Construction that the building has been restored to the highly sought-after block it once was. Says Dejane of Devmark Design and Renovation, “We wanted the entire building to retain its industrial look and feel but give it a modern twist. It’s been a great opportunity to be able to play a part in the revamp of Cape Town’s urban city development.” The building’s exterior was severely outdated with face brick and splashes of pink. Modern and bold colours of red, charcoal and mushroom have transformed the outer surface. Inside, the lobbies were all tiled in very large, high-gloss black and mushroom coloured tiles. Clever lighting was installed in the hallways to help create a sense of space in an otherwise dark and restricting area. New lifts were installed and floors were screeded to accommodate the heavy load of trolleys and deliveries, while bathrooms we kept simple with built-in vanities and square on-top basins.

Still got the job!

Roland Buhler

Situated a stone’s throw away from Umhlanga Beach and Gateway Theatre of Shopping, the new Gateway Hotel has been designed to take the concerns of environmentallyenlightened travelers to heart. Although large and luxurious, it is a hotel with a small carbon footprint.

With 146 rooms and five conference venues, “greening” the three-star Gateway Hotel, although no easy task, was a necessary undertaking, and is something that will allow guests to enjoy the facilities of the hotel with a clear conscience.

Owned by the Three Cities, Group Chief Development Officer, Roland Buhler, says, “The hotel was built in just over a year which is quite remarkable considering the difficult and tight site working conditions at Gateway. The hotel’s shape and especially the exterior “leaf” design facade covering the northern frontage of the building will surely become a landmark in the area”. When asked about his worst experience in developing properties, Roland comments wryly, “I would say working with an architect who had never seen or stayed in a hotel before. The particular person I am referring to even messed up the developer’s son’s residence, but he somehow got the job of hotel architect?” Roland Buhler, Three Cities, Tel (021) 525-7800, www.threecities.co.za

Maximum efficiency

Johnson Controls has a new offering to help reduce energy consumption in central chilled water plants in buildings by up to 60%. Integral to achieving these savings is new system-level automation software, Johnson Controls Central Plant Optimisation 10 (CPO 10) and Central Plant Optimisation 30 (CPO 30), which enables persistent peak performance and energy savings in central plants in both new construction and existing buildings. Depending on climate, region and equipment configurations, a central chilled water plant can consume more than 30% of the power required to run a building. To achieve peak efficiency performance, a facility’s central plant equipment and independent components can now be designed and operated as a single integrated system with Johnson

Controls Central Plant Optimisation software. “Building owners and operators have the biggest opportunity to realise savings where the facility consumes the most energy-the central chilled water plant,” says Neil Cameron, GM of Johnson Controls Systems & Service Africa. “A holistic approach to plant design and operations is necessary to drive efficiencies that minimise operating costs, reduce environmental impact and lead to a better return on investment.” Both CPO 10 and CPO 30 feature innovative control technologies that are designed to provide system performance improvements based on real-time building loads. When incorporated with a modern building automation system and efficient HVAC equipment, CPO software solutions can help a chilled water plant system achieve maximum energy savings.

News & Views A natural rating

Aurecon has completed the Nedbank Ridgeside in KwaZuluNatal which recently achieved a Four Star Certified GBCSA

The Nedbank Ridgeside Office Block is approximately 6 500m², consisting of a four-storey office block and a three-level super basement. Hailed as the building which “sets the standard for all future development of the Ridgeside precinct”, the project was unusual in the degree of collaboration it required from the professional team. “In order to ensure that all role-players were aware of the common goals surrounding the achievement of a Green Star rating, the team met regularly for a series of design and report-back meetings,” comments Aurecon engineer, Pieter Becker. He adds that the strict requirements of the Green Star rating system forced the professional team to challenge tried and tested building practices to come up with innovative ways of achieving the sustainability targets. Utilising CISCO reinforcing steel, which is 98% recycled, we ensured a total of 96% of the total amount of all steel on the project was recycled,” he comments. Aurecon provided all of the wet services for the project, including rainwater drainage, achieving 100% of the available points under the ‘Water’ credit. This was achieved through innovative wet services techniques such as rainwater harvesting from the entire roof area.

Green Star Rating, thereby becoming the second office development in South Africa to be fully certified, and the first in KZN. This rating was jointly pursued by the client, Zenprop, and tenant, Nedbank, together with the professional team

which saw Aurecon play the role of structural, civil and wet services engineer, together with WSP Green by Design as the Green Star Accredited Professional and sustainability consultant.

In addition, a system to collect stormwater was designed to channel run-off from all hard surfaces into a water retention facility. The harvested rainwater is treated and reused for flushing toilets, irrigation and heat rejection by the cooling towers. www.aurecongroup.com

News & Views Affordability pressures

FNB Housing Finance in partnership with GIZ, German Development Agency and Carbon Programmes Pty (Ltd), has piloted an energy-efficient housing project to test new ways of using less energy in the affordable housing space. In the pilot project, 10 housing units were built in Cosmo City, Johannesburg, using new forms of insulation in the walls, foundation and ceilings. The housing units were also fitted with solar water heaters allowing for both high and low pressures. “Most people do not associate affordable housing with energy efficiency and when they do, assume there are massive costs involved,” says Marius Marais, CEO of FNB Housing Finance. “This is because the general view has been that energy efficiency requires expensive solar geysers, solar panels for lights, high maintenance costs and other expensive interventions.” With expected electricity increases, FNB realised that this could have a major impact on the affordability status of customers. Existing customers will find it increasingly difficult to make ends meet and prospective home-buyers will find it difficult to qualify for home loans as a result of affordability pressures. “We are excited as the initial results show that this innovation can save homeowners a substantial amount per month on their energy costs,” notes Marais. The units’ energy usage has been monitored since August 2010 and a comprehensive report is expected by the end of September 2011. The actual energy usage and savings during winter and summer will be quantified to FNB and its partners to release more energy efficient units in the affordable housing market in future. Should the study produce favourable results, the bank will consider rolling out the energy efficient units in future developments.

The inaugural two-day event will take place on 7 and 8 July at The Forum, Turbine Hall, Newtown, Joburg. Incorporating a highlevel conference and a design-led exhibition, Design in Hospitality focuses exclusively on the hotel and hospitality industry. “From check-in to sleeping to bathing to eating – modern hospitality concepts need to excite, seduce and sell, and do so by balancing aesthetics with the financial,” says Cairey Slater, general manager for the project. “Hotels are undergoing a transformation which will see their range of offerings go far beyond the basic services of accommodation and food.” Sustainability will be integrated throughout all aspects of the event, joined by ethonomics, one of the most impactful trends emerging on the hotel design scene. Technology and connectivity will also feature strongly. The two-day DiH Conference, themed ‘Designing the ultimate away experience’, forms the core of the event, providing delegates with essential advice and updates

from this sector. An exemplary line-up of international industry design experts and local leading lights will share their insights on trends in their field and discuss their vision in the context of the hospitality world.

News & Views An additional innovation

Stumbelbloc, the Cape company that introduced (and

patented) a robust, lightweight DIY concrete block manufacturing PVC mould in 2010, has come up with a further innovation – blocks that ‘float on water’. “The blocks are among the lightest and most thermally efficient ever launched in South Africa,” says Andre Esterhuizen, CEO of Stumbelbloc. This is achieved by allowing some 35% of each block to be made up of nondegradable polystyrene. This is a recycled product that is collected from municipal and other rubbish dumps and recycling agencies. The recycled polystyrene is crushed to form pellets and then mixed with Perlite and cement. The resultant lightweight block is ideal both for low strength non-load bearing walls and floors and for rooms that require thermal or sound insulation. All services can, as with most concrete blocks, be led through the cavities and kept invisible and the blocks are suitable for plastering. Stumbelbloc, Andre Esterhuizen, Tel: (021) 551 9870

Dulux Trade R&D executive Tony Pillay who heads the team that formulated this remarkable paint explains, “From a trade point of view, what is so different about this paint is the in-can structure. The nature of the viscosity, or rheology of the paint, is that it appears very thick in the can, but the structure has been engineered to allow contractors to load the paint directly from the can, and still the paint spreads like butter when rolled onto a wall! It has superior adhesion to cement-based surfaces and offers the best smooth coating on the market in a two-coat application!”

After revolutionising the in-can paint structure, Tony and his team worked on adding different properties to further enhance it. Flexibility was added to the Dulux Trade Weatherhsield product to enable it to bridge hairline cracks and allow for marginal movement in the substrate. The product also contains a fungicide that inhibits mould growth on the paint film, ensuring it stays cleaner for longer making it particularly suitable for use in changeable weather.

COMPELLING REASONS TO SPECIFY EPS! When it comes to insulation, here are 10 good reasons for using EPS 1. Over the past six decades, EPS has become accepted world-wide as the safe, economical and energy-saving form of building insulation. 2. EPS is compatible with cement, concrete, brick, masonry, mortars, plaster and bitumen-based damp-proof membranes. 3. EPS is lightweight and easy to work with, being supplied in moulded forms to required shape and size, or as large blocks for cutting into sheets and shapes. 4. EPS is moisture-resistant and retains its thermal properties.

5. EPS is rot-proof and durable. Correctly installed, EPS remains effective as a thermal insulation product for the duration of a building. 6. EPS is Új]%j]lYj\Yfl. styFRene !Mri^?K"\hgmZbglZÜZf^&k^mZk]bg`Z]]bmbo^' TM

7. EPS is energy-saving and helps conserve energy usage in other areas such as ^e^\mkb\Zea^Zm^klZg]hi^gÛk^l' 8. EPS is environment-friendly, consisting of organic materials (primarily carbon and hydrogen) making it one of the most ecologically harmless products. It contains no CFCs and does not damage the ozone layer. 9. EPS is easily disposable. Correctly incinerated, 100kg of EPS polystyrene leaves just 0,01kg of ash, and the gases emitted are non-toxic. 10. EPS is recyclable.
