Hans A Schefferlie, executive director

As you are aware our industries funded the establishment of SAFIERA, the South African Fenestration and Insulation Energy Rating Authority with testing equipment for establishing thermal performance of building envelope systems (fenestration, wall and roof assemblies). We have tested 17 fenestration systems, 12 insulation systems, 7 roof assemblies and 16 walls (brick and concrete block) to date. This activity attracted the attention of the US Department of Energy who visited our laboratory on 15 January 2012.

Consultants

We are extremely optimistic that 2012 will be a good year for all, not least, because of the National Building Regulations, effective 9 November 2011, introducing the requirements for energy efficiency in buildings.

Exciting beginning

The delegation consisted of, among other, the Deputy Secretary, Daniel B. Poneman; Deputy Assistant Secretary for Eurasia, Africa, and the Middle East, Andrea Waldman Lockwood; Ann Blair Mersinger, International Relations Specialist Office of African & Middle Eastern Affairs; and Elizabeth N. Emanuel, Special Assistant US DOE, all of whom reside in Washington USA. This was a very exiting beginning of 2012 for our Association and augurs well for the growth expected during this year.

COVER STORY

Keeping it Simple Simplicity is invariably a sign of sophistication. As entities evolve, they reorganise their systems to function smoothly and efficiently. When companies are involved, this bodes well for customers, who generally benefit from better products and services.

S

uch is the case for world leaders in lightweight building systems, Saint-Gobain Gyproc. When “Architect &Specificator ” speaks to Heidi Olivier, marketing manager at the company, she explains that things are set for a shake-up.

Focus on innovation

“We’re in the process of introducing a new brand architecture based on a culture of innovation which will filter throughout our organisation in everything we do,” she smiles. On the surface this will begin with a new look, but it will also translate into a streamlining of branding to focus on simplicity. “At a merchant level, the new approach will be product-based, allowing customers to buy from our range of Gyproc ‘Power Brands’ according to their needs, for instance board or steel, décor or plasters,” Heidi tells us. “However, for architects our offering will be systems-based, providing bundled solutions to specific performance areas such as sound-absorption, moisture-resistance and flame-retarding abilities.”

It will also translate into a streamlining of branding to focus on simplicity This means that specifiers no longer have to navigate through numerous products to get to the final system that meets their needs. Combinations of Power Brands, for example RhinoBoard, RhinoLite or RhinoArt, have been grouped according to their suitability for various applications, taking the guesswork out of the equation. Even packaging has been simplified to make things easier.

Improved product offering

Changes have not been limited to branding, however, and Heidi adds that the company is also introducing a number of improved products in the near future. “Our new focus is on ease-of-use and workability, so products have been designed with this in mind,” she continues. “For instance, our new formula plasters RhinoGlide (jointing and finishing plaster) and RhinoBed (adhesive plaster for RhinoArt Cove) – which will be available in coastal regions in January 2012 – are easier to mix and easier to apply. Also, the material doesn’t shrink or form lumps.” As is often the case, Gyproc’s evolution is not happening in giant leaps, but rather incremental steps towards consistent improvement. “It’s not about reinventing the wheel,” Heidi explains. “We’re simply improving it. We have updated our technical literature, making it easy to comprehend. We have provided step-by-step installation guides, tables to help calculate quantities and up-to-date information on building regulations, all available on our new website. Now isn’t this what you would expect from the leaders in building innovation?” Heidi Olivier, Saint-Gobain Gyproc, Tel. (012) 657 2878, Fax.

Soaring Creativity

Retail projects require a much shorter timeline

When Graeme Holtshausen and Nico Strydom, partners at Dakota Architecture and Interior Architecture, first began collaborating over a dozen years ago, it planted the seed for the birth of a design company that addresses the issues of a multitude of architectural, interior and construction issues.

W

e’d worked together for years and always had a vision to set up a onestop-shop type of firm that covered all the basics,” Graeme explains to Architect & Specificator. At that point, Nico had already established Dakota Interior Architecture, but almost two years ago the pair decided to rebrand the company to cover a full range of services.

A happy marriage of the two design aspects Single point

“The idea is to offer a single point of contact for architecture, interior architecture, master planning, procurement and fit-out,” he continues. In doing this, the team provides the client with an integrated approach, minimising communication glitches and providing a cohesive relationship between the internal and external envelope of the building. The company’s construction arm takes the concept a step further by turning design plans into reality while providing the team with complete control of the finished product. “It’s a huge advantage,” Graeme admits, explaining

that the integrated approach has won the firm some significant projects, not least of which is the renovation of the existing Grayston Hotel, owned by the Cavaleros Group. The developer, Sun International, was impressed by their ability to manage the entire process from start to finish. “Speed is a major factor; our holistic approach means, we design the exterior and interior envelope simultaneously, ensuring a seamless integration". Not only does this result in a happy marriage of the two design aspects, but it also significantly reduces the time taken to finish the process. The pair has applied the philosophy to a range of projects extending from leisure to commercial and retail, where they often manage corporate branding for high-profile labels such as Stuttafords, French Connection, Incredible Connection, Hi-Fi Corporation, Nu-Metro, Big Five Duty Free and a multitude of others. “The retail projects are generally much quicker due to huge time constraints,” Graeme tells us. “Retail projects are fast track by nature and, in some instances, projects can be implemented from concept to final construction in a mere two months, because the client simply can’t afford to be out of operation.” Here too, the involvement of the construction arm is a benefit, since it specialises in sensitive projects of this nature and is able to deliver on time with minimum fuss.


PRACTICE PROFILE

“A large number of our clients are national retailers and we enjoy solid relationships with various suppliers, artisans and contractors located throughout South Africa and Africa,” Graeme continues. “These relationships ensure a timeous, efficient and affordable service and a set of maintenance solutions which translates into direct savings for our clients.”

Beyond budget

While Graeme speaks a lot about saving clients’ time and money, he’s equally passionate about good design and explains to us that the creative process is taken very seriously. “Before we even present visuals to our client we’ll introduce a ‘design narrative’, which is philosophically based in terms of how the design idea continues throughout the building. For instance, in the Grayston Hotel project, we explained the concept of convergence of horizontal and vertical lines from the exterior through to the interior of the building, and how this influenced the aesthetic. “Once we’ve presented the narrative, we take the client on a journey through the building, displaying photo-realistic representations of exterior and interior spaces, that describe our design intent.” While this may seem like a complex process, Graeme assures

Graeme Holtshausen and Nico Strydom, Dakota Architecture and Interior Architecture

By tapping into numerous minds and imaginations we create spaces designed to link people, places and experiences us that it’s useful way of introducing the design in an understandable format. Thus far, it’s proved to be successful. “We usually only need one informal meeting with clients to get into their heads,” he

smiles. “From there it’s a matter of transforming their vision into reality.”

Big ideas

The team’s design is influenced by context, location, function, environment and financial expenditure, involving collaboration with not only clients but also other colleagues. “By tapping into numerous minds and imaginations we create spaces designed to link people, places and experiences. We follow a ‘design through innovation’ philosophy, continually exploring new ideas so that we’re able to address clients’ needs in fresh, new ways.” These fresh new ideas have been applied in projects such as the Centurion Office Park for M&T Developments, a plethora of ultra-luxury resorts including Quisanga Island Resort and Rescon/ Sumali’s mixed use development featuring the Radisson Blu hotel in Rhodesfield. “The Rhodesfield project covers 100 000 m2 and incorporates hotel, office, retail and conference facilities, as well as three levels of super basement parking,” Graeme describes. In a development of this size the challenge of creating continuity was significant. The team introduced the conceptual notion of kinetic energy, fused with colour and folding elements, to generate a cohesive architectural form.

Fresh looks

In other instances, challenges are more about working within existing ‘shells’ to create a fresh look for an old building. Graeme describes the Meikles Hotel in Harare, Zimbabwe as a ‘grand old lady in need of a facelift’. Constructed in the early 1900s, the family-owned hotel required the introduction of a contemporary design language while paying homage to its existing heritage. The final result was a full refurbishment of guest

rooms, public areas, health spa and speciality restaurants as well as the conversion of rooms into apartments. “It was a bit like removing her spectacles and replacing them with contact lenses,” he chuckles.

On the horizon

Upcoming projects look equally promising, with plans in place for 50 000m2 of offices for M&T Developments, the refurbishment of the Silverstar Casino for Mirage, the New Nairobi Radisson, and other leisure, commercial and residential projects in Nigeria and Mozambique. Graeme Holtshausen and Nico Strydom are joined by Walter Iafrate, their financial partner who ensures the running of the business is as smooth as their design partnership.

It was a bit like removing her spectacles and replacing them with contact lenses “We believe that consistency in our actions, methods, principal and expectations is a true measure of integrity in our business” explains Graeme. “Many of our projects are a result of previous work for our existing clients, or from past collaborations with colleagues at other firms and of course creating relationships with new clients,” Graeme says. This speaks volumes about the company’s reputation, not only in terms of work quality, but also about the relationships forged along the way. In an industry where bridges can be burned as fast as they’re constructed, and creative differences can cause irreparable rifts, it’s refreshing to encounter a team who truly believes in working holistically together.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Teach Don’t Patronise Hi Susan Custers and Hans Schefferlie, I refer to “From the Desk Nov/Dec 2011” Important-looking people are lecturing about National Building Regulations etc. lately as if they’ve been discovered for the first time and as if nobody has heard of the regs before. You’d think we know nothing about designing buildings. Us duly-qualified architects have been applying the regs rigorously for many years, even before 2007. Not so for most draughtspeople, for whom the floodgates were opened about 25 years ago. Without a doubt these people were and still are responsible for most badlydesigned buildings, structurally, architecturally, regulatory and financially. With cheap designs and detailing, if any, they intercept work and with the help of bad building control they are responsible for most unsuccessful design and building failures, not us. Furthermore there is no or very little architectural control over the quality of residential builders. They enrich themselves with bad quality building work. For instance, after rigorously applying regulations to obtain approval for building plans and rigorously pressurising a builder to deliver a proper building, via JBCC documentation and all, the City of Cape Town does not even bother to empower the architect for a completion certificate. All empowerment we have, is by the grace of a willing employer, to withhold payment certification for defective or incomplete building work. We are being lectured from a dizzy height about rigorously implementing regulations by "administrators". Help us to obtain the information we need by all means but we prefer to learn instead of being patronized. Many dedicated architects want to be responsible, have a lot to offer, are talented, raring to go, but having to contend with lack of work, the wrath of authorities, are perhaps unable to attend expensive cpd seminars, and may find it impossible to afford professional indemnity insurance. Regards,

can offer one piece of advice to architects right now, it is: ‘Test, test, test and test some more!’ Energy efficiency legislation is also influential at the moment and Hans urges professionals to keep informed of the relevant requirements in this area. “We sank R2/3 million into a testing facility to support government in attaining its goal of putting energy efficiency legislation in place,” Hans continues, referring to the much-discussed ‘Hot Box’ located at the CSIR. “We have all the equipment necessary to test doors, windows; everything in the building envelope. Curiously, the people using the facility are not predominantly AAAMSA members. We’ve had far more support from the brick and roofing industries, due to the strong focus on R-values in these segments.” Hans would like to see this change, however, and explains that it has financial benefits in the longterm. “Fenestration must test, even if only to sell more products. In the legislation there is a default value that is assumed, which is very conservative. If a product exceeds this value, it would be a selling point. “Because of this, AAAMSA not only represents the aluminium and fenestration sectors, but all framing materials including concrete, PVC and timber. Steel hasn’t come to the party yet, and I’m not sure they will because the material doesn’t meet the stringent values set out.”

Deemed-to-satisfy

Table 1: Location of deemed-to-satisfy requirements for the different parts of the National Building Regulations

Hans also points out that the deemed-to-satisfy specifications in SANS 10400 are the minimum acceptable requirements, but are not necessarily best practice specs. “In South Africa we’re inclined

According to legislation updates to SANS 10400 which came into place on 9 November 2011, gazettes not only introduced Energy Efficiency in Buildings, but also require members of the construction industry to “…demonstrate, or predict with certainty, to the satisfaction of the appropriate local authority, that an adopted building solution has an equivalent or superior performance to a solution that complies with the requirements of the relevant part of SANS 10400 (Regulation AZ4 (1)(b)(ii)).” This means that plans must go above and beyond the prescribed requirements, and generally there is no room for error. “Some areas, such as Durban, are extremely strict about the legislation,” Hans tells us. “Gone are the days where approval is given at the end of the building process.”

to under-design, but this will have to change,” he warns.

With this in mind, he is particularly concerned by the lack of awareness in the industry. “Many architects don’t know about the steps they need to take,” he continues. “I recently gave a presentation to 150 architects in Somerset West during which I asked ‘Do you have SANS 10440-A?’ Only seven did. This section contains all the documents that apply to planning permissions! The documentation also advises that applications be accompanied by all relevant test certificates to expedite approval prior to construction.

Energy crunch

Similar attention to detail should be applied to new energy efficiency regulations before plans can be approved. Hans predicts a bumper year for the insulation industry in 2012, with volumes already trebling since the new laws took effect. “What is important for the insulation industry to take note of is that products must comply with

explains that compliance is less of a problem. “90% of the industry will follow the deemed-to-satisfy specs of SANS 104, and here you need to comply with everything.”

Increased vigilance

He adds that architects are becoming increasingly vigilant in terms of material specification; it’s no longer so easy to substitute an architect’s specified product with a cheaper alternative on-site. The repercussions to the professionals are simply too extreme. Hans admits that enforcing compliance with the legislation has become a personal mission, but he is adamant that his passion is well-directed. “The more we emphasise the importance of these procedures, the better it is for the industry and the consumer.” Hans Schefferlie, AAAMSA, Tel. 011 805 5002, Fax. 011 8055033, Email. aaamsa@iafrica.com, www.aaamsa.co.za

It is vital that insulation be tested for fire safety because fire kills,” Hans says gravely. “We’re seeing all these beautiful materials from overseas with many impressive certificates, but regardless of this, the materials need to be retested here. Suppliers must realise that architects won’t shy away from demanding this certification because they’re held responsible if something goes wrong down the line.” On this front, Hans

KWIKOT'S KWIKPUMP HEAT PUMPS OFFER HOME OWNERS AN ALTERNATIVE TO SOLAR WATER HEATING which is more efficient, cost effective and environmentally friendly. 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. Heat pumps are available for 100lt to 250lt electric water heaters.

Why Red and Not Green? A press release arrived. We were advised that a juicy red is the colour of the year. “Architect & Specificator” asked Dulux to tell us: “Why berry red and not olive green, for example?” Sonica Bucksteg, Dulux colour expert fills us in.

very year colourfutures presents one dominant trend, one essential value. Five related trends stem from that dominant idea, which are all translated into colour palettes. From these, a single “colour of the year” is selected, the colour that best sums up the prevailing mood. This year’s driving influence logically follows from those that set the mood in the last few years. 2010 was about “reclaiming” what we

knew to be true and solid, about relying on our individual strength and our capability to regroup, in the hope of moving forward. 2011 had “Appreciation” as the common denominator, hinting at our new-found appreciation for simplicity and purity, finding joy in everyday things we had been taking for granted for so long, and treasuring them. Although appreciation is wonderful and much needed, it holds an element of acceptance, which is by nature complacent. That is why the concept of “Possibilities” – the theme for 2012 is one step up – it is a move towards the pro-active, to open up our minds and discover the endless “possibilities” our physical and imaginary world still has to offer us. It is then only suitable that the colour of the year is a lively juicy red, which is enigmatic and versatile, encompassing all 2012 trends, because it spans a whole new spectrum of possibilities. It visually represents the world’s new understanding of our need for diversity – of concepts, of viewpoints, of approaches.

A colour that is known to be a powerful mood-modifier, reminds us not to look for simple solutions, but to rather challenge our creativity for new ideas waiting to be discovered. A colour that means many different things to many people. In China, red is associated with good fortune, in India it signals marital bliss. In western cultures it represents the colour of passion, power and festivity and since we cannot ignore it, it’s also used to alert us to danger. In a colour palette, a hue like this offers many possibilities – offsetting one colour, bringing out a certain depth of cool quality in the next. Like the jester in a deck of cards, it can change the game in an instant, brightening your outlook in unpredictable ways. Sonica Bucksteg, Dulux, Tel: 0860 330-111, www.dulux.co.za

When the colourfutures team start working on the palettes for each theme, it becomes apparent that one colour tends to feature most or dominate throughout all the pallets. Though green is very prominent in our “one small seed” theme, it is the blushing red that completes and enhances all the other colours within this palette and all the other theme pallets. In each theme it represents something different or surprising. In the “one small seed” palette it represents the beauty of discovering a sudden bloom of flowers which may not have been in your garden the previous day. It is then 2012’s blushing red that becomes the thread that ties all the theme pallets together and as the overall theme describes – this colour offers endless “possibilities”.

COLLUSION

Underhand Attempts “The Southern African institute of Steel Construction (SAISC) is not aware of any form of collusion, price fixing, division of markets or other practices in the steel construction industry. In fact, the industry is exceedingly competitive,” says executive director, Dr Hennie de Clercq.

I

t is common practice to ask at least five or six companies, and often many more, to tender for any project for steelwork. This is not an optimal procedure, because it is quite a costly exercise to bid for a project and ultimately clients also pay for the fruitless work of companies, but it Dr. Hennie de Clercq does mean that the work usually goes to whoever offers the lowest price. This may also not be optimal, because the least quality-conscious contractor, or the one who did not quite understand the complexities involved, is often appointed. Underlying the situation is the basic fact that the capacity of the steel construction industry exceeds the workload. That leads to fierce competition and prices that often do not adequately reward the contractor for his work. This is a buyer’s market. Going back to 2007 and 2008, the situation was radically different. There were times when clients

had to virtually beg contractors to do their steelwork, at almost any price. But then companies had a different incentive not to collude, namely not to share these attractive projects with others.

Working together

On large or complex projects, individual companies are sometimes not able to handle the work by themselves. In such a case, one of three different approaches is often followed.   Firstly, the client, cognisant of the situation, can take the initiative to get groups of companies together, or encourage companies to form joint ventures.   Secondly a company can invite another to form a joint venture or consortium with it.   Thirdly, a company can, after it has won a tender, get other companies to serve as subcontractors. In each of these cases the client is fully informed of the fact that companies are working together, and will appreciate that the collaboration is to the benefit of the client. These arrangements may give the impression that there is collusion, but, in my experience this is a standard and acceptable business practice that occurs all over the world.

GLASS & GLAZING Glass walls and panels are becoming increasingly popular. By using varnished glass, they can be coordinated with the colour concept of the building

Going Great Guns for Glass

Glass is taking on an increasingly prevalent role in the design of interior spaces. Offering numerous new products and innovative refining techniques, the glass industry has successfully opened the door to this major market segment. Modernity, a high degree of functionality and maximum design freedom are attributes connected with building material glass in the interior design of the 21st century.

T

here is a continuing trend towards transparency in the design of interior spaces in the construction of commercial and private buildings. Glass creates light-flooded rooms and can be customised in a variety of ways: translucent, opaque or with individually-designed surfaces. The multitude of available material configurations allows for the use of glass in ceilings, walls and floors, yet products comply with the highest safety requirements and are easy to maintain.

Some truly eye-catching large-scale artworks Broad product range

While alternative materials are losing ground in interior design, glass is continuing to conquer new areas. The material is used in stairways, revolving and sliding doors, wall mirrors, ceilings, floors, panels and shower cabins. In office buildings, reception desks and entrance lobbies made of glass create a sophisticated ambience. In open-plan offices, meeting rooms with glass walls emphasise the open plan concept and some truly eye-catching large-scale artworks, made of glass, adorn many buildings. Glass fittings are also no longer used only as fasten-

Perfectly aligned with the requirements of glass construction, state-of-the -art fitting technology not only ensures the correct positioning and simple operation of glass construction, but also adds value to the overall picture through modern design and top-quality surfaces.

Successful market cultivation

Glass refiners have recognised the major potential of this lucrative material and have put their creativity to the test by developing a broad product range. Digital print, varnishing and bending technologies, as well as high-performance and flexible machinery for highly efficient edging work, allows for mass production as well as the economical manufacturing of individual one-of-a-kind pieces.

Water-less Urinals Industry and agriculture remain the major consumers of water, but in the urban environment, the rapidly increasing cost of water is now also a serious cause for concern – hence the growing need for waterless systems of all kinds, including waterless sewage and urinal disposal systems.

O

ne such, currently being introduced to the market, is the Free Flowing Water Free Urinal Valve now being patented by Sannitree, a 25 year old company that has made its name in the blending of enzymes and bacteria for effluent control. Mike Mayne, the founder and leader of this company, says that the new valve is a breakthrough invention because it not only drastically reduces the use (and cost) of water but it is also far more hygienic than conventional systems because it efficiently contains the odours and gases promoted by urine.

Furthermore, as the conser vationists have been telling us for years, urinals are exceptionally wasteful of water. Every time they are flushed (usually by a push-button or electrical detection device) they use 1,5 to 2 litres of water. “It is quite possible” says Mike, “for a retail centre or hospital with 50 urinals to spend R80 000 a year on urinal flushing water”.

South African municipalities will add a 67% levy to any water bill where the system is linked to a sewage outlet. Considering that urine already comprises 95% water and 3% salts, this is an expensive way of getting rid of the 2% chemicals found in urine.

Over-enthusiastic cleaning

“In view of the entire inefficiency of the traditional urinal system we simply have to stop using water to transport it,” Mike entreats. In order to tackle these problems, Mike first marketed an American liquid sealant that, covering the water in the urinal, allows urine to pass through it but blocks odours and gases from escaping into the atmosphere. In time, however, it Deoballs formulated to reduce uric sludge build up became clear that frequent use of such urinals and (in some cases enthusiastic cleaning have standard diameter waists).

The product, says Mike, is suitable for both new He then went in search of an alternative system and located a European company that made oneway waterless valves for urinals. These, he says, do effectively eliminate the need for water and contain the odours and gases. However, the volatility of the rand against European and American currencies makes it extremely difficult to stabilise a market-related price in South Africa. The rand value against these currencies, coupled with freight and duties makes the unit very expensive, especially compared with a locally-made product.

projects, upgrades or retrofits. It affords large savings by eliminating both the water and its equivalent sewage treatment costs. Savings are also achieved through the elimination of water pipes for flushing, flush valves and sensors. In a retrofit, the operating costs eliminated include not only the water charges, but also flush valve repair and pipe de-clogging costs. The new system can save 1,5 million litres of water every year in a single high-rise building.

We have no difficulty in convincing the architects

The answer

Mike accordingly hunted for a local manufacturer that could design and supply an alternative valve, one that would work more efficiently than the European models and eliminate one of its main drawbacks, the encrustations that prevent full valve closure. Drawing on the ten year’s of Sannitree’s experience in the market, they came up with the answer. The design features an airtight seal and a deodorizing dome which, it has been shown, entirely eliminates the need for water and efficiently contains the entrapped odours and gases. The patent for the system, 2010/008157 is now pending. Tests have proved that the unit is also capable of dealing with the traditional problems experienced by flushing urinals. These are encrustation and blockages which can cause flooding. In an efficient water-free urinal bacteria cannot thrive without moisture but flushed urinals attract pathogenic aerosols from the toilet bowls which then proliferate in nearby wet and damp spots.

Patent pending

The new patent pending design, which also has ISO international certification, has the big advantage that it will fit 95% of all urinals (most of which

Overcoming doubt

Sannitree is now marketing the new South African product under its trade name ‘The Free Flowing Urinal Valve”. They have agents working on their behalf internationally and they expect by the end of 2012 to be supplying the product to 30 countries. They also expect to expand their share of the South African new build and retrofit market. By 2012, says Mike, they should be producing 10 000 valves per annum. “The big challenge is to educate the client base and overcome doubt”, Mike adds. “People find it difficult to believe that a water-free system, even if it is properly maintained, will give a completely odourless environment – but I can assure you that it does. On the cost savings involved in cutting the use of water, we have no difficulty in convincing the architects, a very big advantage in any sales campaign”. This, he concludes, can be confirmed by numerous satisfied clients including Kirstenbosch, SAN. Parks, Engen, the University of Cape Town and many other club, schools and gymnasiums.

possible glass splash panel; there is no traditional shower enclosure at all. A shower room on the other hand, is a bathroom that comprises any kind of shower, a toilet and basins – but no bathtub.” She advises that if bathrooms are currently very small and cramped, it’s wise to consider going the shower or wet room route, as removing the bathtub creates a lot more space in the room: “A wet room in particular is a good way of making the most out of a modestly-sized bathroom, as it will allow all the bathroom components to fit without creating awkward corners to squeeze around.”

Not suitable for very small spaces, as everything will end up getting wet when showering However, she warns that a wet room design is not suitable for very small spaces, as everything will end up getting wet when showering – in these circumstances she says a shower room, with a traditional shower enclosure is more suitable. Although wet or shower rooms appear bigger and more luxurious, as they open up the free flow of space in the room, Jasmin notes that achieving a look of effortless space requires quite a bit of effort in the designing and planning stage. For an open and sleek aesthetic, choose wall-hung toilets, basins and cabinetry to free up floor space. Consider recessed or cavity cabinets and flat-panelled storage to make the storage blend seamlessly with its surrounds.” Jasmin offers the following tips on how to design the perfect shower or wet room.

Flooring

Careful consideration needs to go into the choice of tiles. Although dark tiles are becoming increasingly popular, they do show up limescale, so they will need more cleaning. Tiles with neutral tones have the broadest commercial appeal, are easy to keep clean and offer an elegant, up-to-date aesthetic. Be sure to choose tiles with non-slip qualities, such as those with Nano technology or a bit of a texture underfoot, such as faux wood ceramic. Mosaics are also a great option as they come in a wide variety of textures and colours, and boast excellent nonslip qualities ideal for the shower floor.

Glass screens and shower enclosures

shower or wet room, particular for smaller rooms, as they serve to protect the rest of the room from water spray. Clear glass screens and frameless enclosures provide a seamless, unbroken aesthetic with the rest of the room – opening it up and making it seem larger than it actually is.

Drainage

As with any shower, drainage is an important part of the installation and as such, installing a shower or wet room is a job best left to the professionals. This is especially true for wet rooms – here a gradient needs to be created along the floor to channel the shower water into a drain.

Waterproofing

As with all bathrooms, it is essential that waterproof grouting is used, especially in all the wet areas, such as behind sinks, and on shower floors and walls. For wooden structures, the walls and floors have to be specially primed and then covered with a waterproof membrane to ensure that the surfaces are adequately waterproofed.

Design tips

Make sure towel rails, shelves, cabinetry and any

other sanitaryware are positioned well out of the way of any splashing water from the shower. Also, to avoid having a steamy room, adequate ventilation is essential.

Cabinetry/ Faucets and finishes

Whether modern or traditional, the finish is sleek, open and unfussy. Excess clutter needs to be avoided at all costs, so including adequate cabinetry to store all showering and hygiene essentials is a good idea. Aside from the choice of tiles, selecting great faucets and bathroom accessories will really give this space that “wow” factor!

Shower power

Today there is a plethora of various showerheads and shower columns to choose from, offering a variety of spray options and features, from rain-like shower sprays to all-over body showers, for the optimum showering experience. Also, it is critical to ensure that there is adequate water pressure for a good shower – if the pressure is low, installing a pump system will do the trick.

quality system, approximately 20 years. There is no Eskom subsidy available for gas geysers. By comparison, the cost to install an electric geyser for an average family of four is approximately R7 500. The average life-span of an electrical geyser is five to ten years.

Heat pumps

Effective water heaters but can be expensive to run because approximately half the energy goes up the chimney. Low maintenance costs. The installed price of gas geysers for an average home is approximately R12 500. The approximate life-span of a low quality system is two years and for a high

These can be effective water heaters, but they are totally dependent on electrical power. No power, no hot water. The most common heat pump installed in Southern Africa is an air to water heat pump. This means the unit extracts the heat from the surrounding air which results in the unit having to work excessively hard during the winter months due to the low temperature of the air around the heat pump. Obviously this will mean lower performances in winter. They have many working parts, so they are susceptible to high maintenance costs. The approximate cost to install a heat pump for an average family is R13 500, excluding the cost of the geyser. They make excellent pool heaters where high volumes and low temperatures are required. There is no Eskom subsidy available for heat pumps.

Solar water heating systems

Solar systems are by far the cheapest to operate. They are not dependent on electricity but limited electrical input is required in winter. They are generally maintenance-free. The most popular size for the average home is a 300 litre system. Solar is all about storing the solar heated water required by the family for a full day’s usage. The system costs approximately R22 000 at the coast and R26 000 inland. The reason for the difference in price is that an indirect system needs to be installed inland so that the solar system is not damaged by freezing temperatures in frost-prone areas. Eskom subsidies are between 30 and 40% of the purchase price, depending on which solar system is bought. The life-span on a high quality system is between 10 and 15 years.

Some pointers

Here are some pointers about how to choose the correct solar water heating system for your needs: • Make sure that the solar company you choose has been in business longer than the guarantee they offer. Do not be fooled by well-known companies of long standing who have only recently started to sell solar water heaters. • Ask for references, preferably from a client who has had a system for five years or more. • Ensure that your solar system of choice has the full SABS Mark of Approval. Ask to see a copy Architect & Specificator

of the Certificate. Many companies advertise that they have the Mark but only have an SABS Compliance Certificate. This is merely a once-off test on a single product and does not guarantee continued quality. All too often there are companies claiming they have the SABS Mark when they are using a solar geyser with the Mark and fitting it with a non-approved solar panel. Remember, the SABS Mark is for the whole system and not the component. • Be wary of imported products. Foreign accolades are often meaningless in our harsh South African conditions. Many systems are designed for icy European conditions rather than Africa's scorching heat.

ACCESS, SECURITY & FIRE Fingerprint identification terminal for physical access control, MorphoAccess 100 Series

Locking Down Assets Before moving into a new head office building in Bellville, Pragma identified five core requirements for its access control system.

¦ Automatic

The system had to integrate fully with its intruder alarm and lighting / airconditioning. The organisation had experienced a series of instances where staff failed to activate the alarm in its previous offices. In order to avoid similar occurrences, which could leave it in breach of its insurance obligations in the event of a break in, it was essential that the new access system was able to activate the intruder alarm when the last person left the building at the end of each day. Automatically switching off the lights and air-conditioning would also make a significant contribution to energy reduction initiatives.

¦ Biometric

The need to integrate with the intruder alarm brought a requirement to positively identify staff when they arrived and left the building in order to accurately update the access system’s database. Card or PIN-based access systems can be breached

when people share access tokens, so biometric terminals were installed to manage entry rights.

¦ Flexible

Flexible working patterns mean that staff don’t always stick to conventional working hours, so various access rights for different groups of staff and visitors had to be incorporated into the system. Some staff needed to be given 24/7 access to all areas, others were restricted to office hours and only granted rights to public areas.

¦ Off-site

Remote management was also a key requirement, enabling administrators to connect to the access control database from outside the physical office environment to change access rights and review reports.

¦ Aesthetics

A final, but nonetheless critical, consideration related to the aesthetics of the system. As striking design was a key feature of the new office environment, it was essential for the access control hardware to fit in with the building’s look and feel.

Local product

After a comprehensive procurement exercise which included making visits to its shortlisted vendors’ client installations, Pragma appointed SuperVision Biometric Systems to implement an access control solution. This combined SuperVision’s own SuperAccess access control software, biometric hardware from Sagem / Morpho and turnstile components from MAT Technologies.

According to Darryl Lampert, ICT Manager at Pragma, one of the key factors in appointing SuperVision was the company’s ability to script the necessary interface between the access control software and the building management systems responsible for triggering the alarm system and turning off the lights and aircon.

timeframes and were adamant that the system should be fully functional before staff moved into the new building”, Darryl continues.

In keeping

To remove the likelihood of people forgetting to scan and to prevent tailgating, where staff follow each other through an open door, waist-high turnstiles were installed at the main perimeter access points.

“The alarm integration was the most important aspect of the project. We even changed our monitoring company as the incumbent wouldn’t allow an interface with 3rd party system”, says Darryl. “As SuperAccess is a local product, SuperVision was able to customise the software and test it on site during the deployment – this was particularly comforting given that we were working to very tight

In keeping with the building’s look and feel, a glass and stainless steel turnstile was installed inside the front door, with a smaller stainless steel unit installed at the rear exit. These were fitted with Sagem/Morpho MA500 biometric terminals. Coupled to SuperSign’s anti-passback and zoning features, these force staff to make sequential clockings, thus ensuring the access database has real-time information on the identity and number of people in the building.

News & Views New Office Bearers Master Builders South Africa (MBSA) - a federation of registered employers’ organisations representing contractors and employers operating in the building industry, has recently announced the appointment of its new President Danie Hattingh and Vice President Colin Cozens.

President Danie Hattingh

Mall Upgrade Sika’s were the top choice of specifier Qualytech when the Pavilion Shopping Centre in Westville, Durban, required various renovations. Sika was called on to fulfill various vital parts of the contract; the first entailing waterproofing and resealing the main expansion joints in all the parking decks. As a primary waterproofing barrier, Sikaflex 11FC, a one-part, moisture-curing, elastic joint sealant, was inserted into the joints. The joints were then sealed using Sikadur-Combiflex System consisting of Sikadur-Combiflex Tape (150mm x 2mm), which is a flexible Hypalon waterproofing bandage that is glued with Sikadur-31CF, an epoxy adhesive. Once the Sikadur-Combiflex System had been applied and recessed into each expansion joint, it was then covered with a rubber strip for protection. Various façade joints in the shop-

ping mall were repaired and restored with Sikaflex AT-Façade, a one-part, moisture curing elastic sealant based on Silane Terminated Polymers. The façade joints were prepared with Sika Primer-3N, a one component, epoxypolyurethane solvent-based primer that is easy to apply, provides good wetting out properties and is suitable for use on matt-moist substrates.

Vice President Colin Cozens

A third phase of the contract was to waterproof the many different entrances to the mall. This involved removing all existing tiles, waterproofing the areas with a slurry and membrane, and then retiling. The product of choice was Sika’s Cemflex, an acrylic based emulsion that improves the water resistance and adhesion of Portland cement based composites.

Having previously served two consecutive terms as President of the Master Builders Association Western Cape (MBAWC) and as MBSA Vice President, Danie is well equipped for his new role.

A first for South Africa

Have you always wanted to skydive but just have not had the opportunity, the money or you just don’t like planes? Now, for the first time ever the technology is available in South Africa to give everyone that flying feeling! The City Flyers vertical wind tunnel enables a person to float in midair through the force of the wind that is generated. The vertical wind tunnel is situated on Century Boulevard, on the South Eastern corner of Canal Walk shopping centre. Says Malcolm Gurling, Cape Town entrepreneur and City Flyers co-owner, “Overseas vertical wind tunnels are very popular among skydivers because the sensation is extremely similar to skydiving. We have very experienced instructors who can train anyone within half an hour to fly. Our wind tunnel has a maximum air speed of 230 kph

and a diameter of 2.8 m.” Establishing City Flyers as the exclusive South African destination for wind tunnel skydiving and importing the technology and the expertise, has been an exciting venture and a labour of love for Girling and his business partner, Jeremy Warner, for whom flying is a full-time pleasure as a pilot for South African Airways. “Anyone can do wind tunnel skydiving or body flight,” says Jeremy Warner, “as long as you are fit and healthy and do not suffer from shoulder, back or neck injuries. Kids from as young as three years old are welcome and the maximum weight is 115 kilograms.”

Body flying or wind tunnel skydiving has been around for a while says Jeremy. “The technology is Canadian and Latvian and we have brought the best instructors from Latvia to train our local instructors in the sport. Its ideal for groups and parties and loads of fun, although alcohol is not allowed before and during the flights.” City Flyers, Tel: 0860-359377, www.cityflyers.co.za

Far-reaching benefits Grant Neser, AfriSam’s commercial executive, points out, “We cannot afford to keep producing cements with conventional technologies that generate large quantities of CO2 emissions while we have the option of using more technologically-advanced composite

cements which offer additional advantages in comparison to conventional cements.” AfriSam has become a globally recognised leader in the production of these advanced composite cements, which use by-products from the

steel manufacturing and coal-fired power station industries together with chemical activators to improve the characteristics and performance of traditional Portland cement. According to Grant, using by-products such as silica fume, pulverised fly ash and ground granulated blast furnace slag produces cements which generate concrete with improved heat of hydration, reduced porosity, improved strength, durability and resistance to chemical attack. “The slag, for instance, binds with chlorides in coastal environments, protecting reinforcing steel from corrosion. Lower heat of hydration means that heat generation can be far better controlled with bulk pours, reducing thermal cracking and resultant porosity. In other words, producing advanced composite cements enables us to control and improve the consistency in the performance of cement to a greater degree” he points out.

AfriSam has poured considerable capital investment into upgrading its production facilities to produce advanced composite cements

News & Views Highest rating Group Five has achieved the highest rating of a JSE Top 100 listed construction company in the 2011 Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Local carbon advisory firm, Promethium Carbon, achieved a first when three of its clients including Group Five were placed in the top ten of the JSE Top 100 CDP report. Promethium director Harmke Immink says that since 2000, the CDP has, on behalf of its signatory investors, encouraged the world’s largest companies to measure and report their carbon emissions. “This year, CDP was backed by 551 institutional investors holding US$71trillion in assets under management with questionnaires to the world’s largest companies asking them to report on their carbon emission,” he adds. “The CDP questionnaire focuses on three key areas: climate change management, risks and opportunity identification; and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions accounting and performance.” “To address carbon reduction, Group Five implemented a total quality management culture that underpins every aspect of its operations and reinforces the centrality of sustainability,” says Celia Becker, country risk director, Group Five. “Becoming a leader in green buildings and acquiring a stake in the associated products for green buildings (like solar water heaters) will aid in Group Five’s reputation of becoming a greener construction company, and result in actual emission reductions when implemented in construction projects.”

Wonderful winery Waterkloof Estate, known for its sustainable wine farming on the outskirts of the Helderberg Winelands, has clinched South Africa’s Best Architecture and Landscape title at the Great Wine Capitals (GWC) Best of Wine Tourism Awards 2012. In addition, this magnificently-appointed ‘cellar in the sky’, perched high on the slopes of the Schapenberg also excelled with third place in the Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices and Wine Tourism Restaurants categories.

She adds that their strategy is influenced by the direct impact that climate change has on Group Five operations. This includes physical climate change risks as well as regulatory risks such as increased energy costs and taxes on carbon intensive fuels. The increased demand for green buildings and renewable energy also influenced the strategy to create a dedicated division.

In 2009, Waterkloof Cellar, which also features a fine dining restaurant and a 10 metre high glass promontory flowing from a slick wine tasting lounge, triumphed as the first South African architectural feat for Castle Rock Design – an Australian based company that is internationally recognised for its innovation in the design and management of wineries, luxury resorts and hospitality-related projects.

Earthworks are underway on the new R650m ‘AAA’ grade, ‘Katherine & West’ office development by Barrow Properties, within metres of the Sandton Gautrain station and next to the Radisson Blu Hotel. The project will take 26 months to complete. The works involve an 18m deep excavation, 4500sqm of gunnite, 112 lateral support piles and the removal of 80 000 cubic metres of earth. Esorfranki Geotechnical has been awarded the lateral support contract, Protech has the earthworks contract as a sub-contractor to Esor and structural engineers are Pure Consulting. Barrow Construction will be the main contractor.

There will be six levels of basement parking, providing a parking ratio of four bays per 100sqm of office space. The project involves some 19 000sqm of office space within a fully-secured, access-controlled site with ‘good address’ appeal, and exceptional exposure. Moreover, the building, designed by TPSP Architects, will be energy efficient with sophisticated cooling systems and double glazing.

An artist's impression of "The Herschel", a Berman Brothers and Sandak-Lewin Developments 66 unit project

The ongoing transformation of Claremont’s central precinct, which was initiated by Cavendish Square some 30 years ago, will be taken a significant step forward by a new project from Berman Brothers and Sandak-Lewin Developments, who have formed a joint venture to redevelop a prime site on the corners of Herschel Road and Herschel Close. They have consolidated four plots and have demolished the double storey homes on them (most of which lacked architectural merit) to create a site that covers a full 2 364m². On this they are developing a seven storey apartment block (with a two level parking basement) which will contain 66 sectional title apartments in all. The designers of the project are Peerutin Architects, who were previously active in this area when they designed the mixed-use units of the nearby Intaba complex – which has seen steady price increases ever since its completion in 2008.

“The Herschel”, says Simeon Peerutin, a senior partner of Peerutin Architects, “will be similar to Intaba in that it will be upmarket with a high standard of finishes but in response to the far tougher economic scenario in which developers are now operating, we have kept to a tight budget. Johan Moolman, Peerutin Architects’ project architect on this development, adds, “As indicated, the standard of finishes will be high: we will have Ten Shield carpeting in the living, dining areas and passages, porcelain tiles in the kitchens and lift lobbies, and powder coated aluminium doors and windows. To maximise on the mountain views all the west facing apartments will have walk-on balconies with stainless steel balustrading. The east facing units will have narrower Juliet-style balconies.”

Better Balconies A balcony should enhance a building and add value to the property. In exposed areas or severe climates waterproofing a balcony is vital to ensure that damp and water seepage is prevented. One of the balconies at the Just Letting building after a.b.e. dekflex waterproofing being applied

Leading contractors make use of specialised products specially designed for balconies and to ensure the balcony remains a feature and not an eye-sore. Waterproofing supplier, a.b.e.’s new waterproofing product, duraproof dekflex, has been successfully used for the waterproofing of two balconies in Gordon’s Bay. Lloyd O’Ryan, a.b.e. technical sales consultant in the Western Cape, says the two balconies, with a total floor area of 40 square metres in the Just Letting building on the corner of Pickle and Main Roads, had previously been waterproofed with a self-adhesive membrane and, prior to that, with copper flashings. “The required falls on the screeds were inadequate with the result that rain water tended to collect on the balconies. Furthermore, as a result of extensive renovations on the building, the balconies were badly scuffed, cracked and generally in a poor state,” Lloyd recalls. “The owner had a limited waterproofing budget which meant that a.b.e. was asked for the most cost-effective solution. The selected waterproofing system also had to be trafficable soon after application as the balconies form part of the building’s fire escape,” he adds. a.b.e. approved applicator, Top Deck Waterproofing & Restoration, removed the existing screeds and resurfaced the balconies with a.b.e.’s duralatex as part of the repair mortar. The product is a synthetic resin polymer designed to improve the qualities of cementitious mortars and slurries. “When this rendering had cured, a first coating of a.b.e.’s new duraproof dekflex was roller-applied to the wetted substrate in metre wide sections. The dekflex reinforcing membrane, cut to size with an upturn along the perimeters, was then laid and covered with a second application of dekflex encapsulating the membrane. The balconies were then allowed to cure before a final coat of dekflex was applied,” Lloyd explains. The surfaces of the balconies – used as smokebreak areas by staff - are handling aggressive traffic from the likes of stiletto heels, totally satisfactorily,” Lloyd concludes. a.b.e.

News & Views The green light In October last year, the Technical Steering Committee (TSC) of the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA) announced its resolve to withdraw the Mat-7 PVC Minimisation credit from the Green Star SA rating system.

A green building rating tool sets standards and benchmarks for green building, and enables an objective assessment to be made as to how "green" a building is. The rating system sets out a "menu" of all the green measures that can be incorporated into a building to make it green. Points are awarded to a building according to which mea-

sures have been incorporated, and, after appropriate weighting, a total score is arrived at, which determines the rating. Initially a PVC Expert Reference Panel (ERP) was formed, which acted as an advisory group to the GBCSA and assisted with technical matters on domestic and international best environmental practice initiatives related to the manufacture, use and end-of-life of PVC building products. In particular, the panel advised on the applicability of the revised Australian Green Star PVC credit to the South African context. To this end, the GBCSA then engaged with the Southern African Vinyls Association (SAVA) – an industry body that is representative of the local PVC industry. SAVA coordinated an industry questionnaire on behalf of the GBCSA,

which, together with recommendations by the ERP, resulted in a platform for the GBCSA Technical Steering Committee (TSC) to have a constructive debate and recognise the voluntary progress made in the Southern African context in terms of long standing vinyl issues. The withdrawal of the Mat-7 PVC Minimisation credit from the Green Star SA rating system acknowledges the progress SAVA has made to date, and will serve as further impetus to address the historical environmental concerns of PVC and improve the environmental performance of PVC that is traditionally an important product used in the construction and decorating industries.

The agreement with the WBCSD’s CSI will act as a catalyst in shaping the ACMP’s response to climate change and sustainable development. While the ACMP will have access through this platform to international best practice and standards, WBCSD’s CSI will be able to expand its activities into Africa.

Rope access specialist, Skyriders marketing manager Mike Zinn points out that in addition to scaffolding, hydraulic aerial platforms, suspended platforms and rope access, the company supplies and installs nets for numerous at-height applications.

Comprehensive engagement with peers and colleagues around the world will help ensure that the South African cement industry stays informed on global issues when deciding on policy direction, particularly around energy and carbon emissions.

Slipping

“Nets are ideally-suited to construction and maintenance projects requiring different phases of work, such as the undersides of bridges, the undersides of silo roofs and stadium roofs, where access is a limitation. What’s more, nets are quick to install and dismantle and they are the perfect option for training contractors, as they are cost-effective, can support relatively heavy loads and ensure that objects such as tools and debris do not fall to the ground,” he explains. Although netting is a safe at-height safety solution for industrial projects, Mike does admit that a number of people remain wary of this safety platform. “Nets do not look as solid and sturdy as scaffolding and, as a result, people are put off the idea of using it. However, nets are in fact very safe and easy-to-use. The versatility of nets means that they can be installed almost anywhere, and provide constant access to contractors, without disturbing the project.”

Mike points out that the only real disadvantage of using netting is the fact that a qualified rope access team is required to install and dismantle the nets. “Contractors cannot install or dismantle the nets themselves, as the process requires skilled rope access technicians to undertake the project, and Skyriders has some of the most experienced and qualified teams in the business.” Skyriders, Mike Zinn, Tel: (011) 312-1418, Email: mike@skysolutions.co.za, Web: www. skysolutions.co.za

DoRego’s, currently consisting of 75 outlets, recently opened new branches in Senekal and Graaff Reinet and is launching its first drive-through in Heidelberg, with plans to open seven more restaurants by February 2012. Darker tones, such as the near-black floor tiles and red wall tiles feature

Tile Africa Contracts supplies Urbis Veneza Preto 300x600mm multiple loaded porcelain tiles for the frontof-house floor area. The floor tiles are cut into different sizes to create a pattern and demarcate certain areas inside the restaurant, such as the red seating booths that run along the walls. “The darker base accentuates the bright colours used throughout the restaurant,” says Vaughn Dyssel, national corporate key accounts executive for Tile Africa Contracts. Tiles are a long-term investment, making it the ideal choice for flooring, especially in high-traffic areas such as restaurants and retail shops.

News & Views LEADERS IN THE SHOWER DOOR INDUSTRY

Toughest challenges Industrial flooring specialist, Concrete Laser Flooring (CLF), has become recognised as an industry leader in concrete floor applications in Southern Africa by making use of an exclusive range of HTC concrete grinding and polishing equipment, distributed locally by Pan Mixers South Africa (PMSA), through Superb Flooring Systems. Johannesburg-based CLF specialises in the grinding and polishing of flat concrete floors for industrial applications, and director Nic de Carvalho points out that the company has made use of the HTC range of grinding machinery on a number of high-profile multi-million rand projects, including the world-class Moses Mabhida Stadium, built in Durban for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

“Only the slightest inconsistency at ground level can have significant consequences for the operation, as an uneven surface may cause the vehicle to tip, or stock may be packaged unevenly, and create safety hazards for employees. The HTC ALL system ensures that the highest international standards of level flooring are met through a simplified process, which involves the operator grinding the surface as necessary, before finding the lowest point of the floor using the laser. From there, the grinding machine will be set in the desired starting point, and the rotation laser will be set to the desired level, in order to achieve a perfectly level floor,” he explains.

We have a large portfolio of successfully completed hotels, lodges, apartment blocks as well as many up-market houses!

Sales manager for Superb Flooring Systems, Andreas Hasselmose notes

that the HTC ALL system is ideally suited to warehousing applications with high bay storage facilities, where forklifts are required to raise stock to high levels.

He notes that concrete polishing and warehouse flooring is CLF’s largest market at the moment, and he adds that the company plans to make use of the recently-launched HTC Automatic Levelling Laser (ALL) system. The HTC ALL system consists of a rotation laser and a mounted receiver, which automatically controls the machine during the grinding process; thereby, ensuring that the floor surfaces are ground to an accuracy level of up to FM1 and CAT1 flooring.

Original concept Fine Arts graduate, Roelf Daling, emerged victorious at the 2011 Pretoria Portland Cement (PPC) Young Concrete Sculptor Awards (YCSA), now in its 20th year. The event took place on Wednesday, 2 November 2011 at the Association of Arts Pretoria. Roelf ’s artwork titled, “The hole we found”, was an original concept, winning him the grand prize of R50 000. His sculpture is a concrete manhole pipe that has been ingeniously rigged with LED lighting and two-way mirrors, creating the illusion of a bottomless shaft with a descending ladder. His work deals with the expansion of cities, and their vast network of tunnels that are constantly being built to carry water, gas, electricity and digital information.

was awarded to Johannesburg-based Regardt van der Meulen, for his piece, “Sleeps with the fishes”. Merit awards, to the value of R5 000 went to Noko Alpheus Mello for his sculpture titled “Sacrifice”, and Mandy Johnston, for her entitled “Transcending the material”. A Certificate of Recognition was also issued to Lebitsi Milton Nelson Thaba for his works entitled, “Puppet Master & Projectile Effect”.

“Buildings offer the greatest opportunity for energy conservation.”

How energy efficient is your building?

Consumer Trust: Consumers will value and recognize your membership, knowing this support is a commitment to SAFIERA's focus on energy efficient research & development and trust the independent/non-biased nature of its structure

Cutting Edge Information: Members also receive continuing electronic updates on activities of interest that affect the fenestration or insulation industry.

Your Voice will be Heard: Influence how the SAFIERA rating and labelling system works. Only members may vote on issues and documents at the subcommittee and committee levels, or be elected to leadership positions.

Save your Organization Money: Receive discounted testing rates and, in the case of manufacturers, reduced charges for certifying products.

Hi Marina Please have a look at the link below to help with the opening of the SFIERA site

and maybe make one opening header blue and the other colour

Administered by

Have your building systems tested in the Rotatable Guarded Hot Box and rated with the South African Fenestration & Insulation Energy Rating Association. Why Testing & Rating is important • Verify compliance with the National Building Regulation SANS 10400:XA Energy Usage in Buildings • Provides performance comparison • Assists the professionals to make informed decisions during rational design • Promotes energy efficiency by providing a base line for product development and improvement • Consumer benefit - Energy Efficient Building Envelope
