Department of Environmental Affairs, Pretoria, South Africa

Client: Imvelo Consortium

Services: Cost Management & Quantity Surveying


The new head office for the Department of Environmental Affairs in Pretoria is a flagship project which sets a new benchmark for government buildings in South Africa.

It was the first government building to be awarded a 6 Star Green Star SA Office v1 design rating by the Green Building Council South Africa and was also the first in the broader city of Tshwane to achieve this rating. A 6 Star rating puts the building on par with global best practice in green building.
