Vopak wins innovation award for Sustainable Construction in South Africa

We are proud to share that our design for Vopak in Lesedi, South Africa, has been awarded the ‘Best Projects’ Afrisam Innovation Award for Sustainable Construction 2021!

The judges commented that competition was tough, highlighting that sustainable architecture is on a rise in South Africa! Highly commended awards were given to 16 on Bree (by Zutari) and Radisson RED - Oxford Parks (by Concor construction). Special Mentions go to Wirzenberg, Zero Waste to landfill (by JG Afrika) and Project Mariachi (by WBHO). Congratulations to all!

Best Projects is the only award in South Africa that celebrates excellence across the entire built environment and recognises civil engineers, building contractors, specialist contractors and suppliers, architects and consulting engineers. Best Projects are independently judged by: Trueman Goba, Nico Maas and Uwe Putlitz.

We celebrate this award with Vopak, the local community involved in the construction and operations of the building, Aurecon engineering, our architect-partner on-site MWC and many others.
