DESCRIPTION
Joint Venture with Tiber: Construction of new head office for Discovery.

The office block consists of 9 underground basement levels, 1 ground level podium slab and 2 towers consisting of 9 levels each, above ground, with a link bridge between the towers. The footprint of the office block is 25 000m2, with a gross building area of just over 300 000m2.

A 5 Star GBCSA rating will be targeted for the project, so innovative ideas, such as a running track on the roof, will be included in the project.

The entire facade will be glazed, which should prove to be interesting considering the curves of the structure.
