The official opening of another Nedbank 4 Star Green Star Rated building, this time in Roodepoort, is set to further reinforce the organisation’s already well established reputation as South Africa’s truly ‘green’ bank.
Nedbank Lakeview, which serves as the banking group’s campus in the west of Johannesburg, is the fourth occupied Nedbank building to achieve the sought after 4-Star Green Star Rating from the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).
According to Charl de Kock, Head of Group Property Services at Nedbank, the new Lakeview building symbolises Nedbank’s commitment to growing its sustainability journey. “The new office space represents a tangible extension of Nedbank’s vision to be a sustainability leader in South Africa.”
The A-Grade Lakeview development saw the consolidation of a multitude of buildings in the west rand, with a capacity to house almost 2000 staff. The building features an auditorium, a restaurant with a view of the Lake, preferential parking for ‘efficient’ travellers and fully equipped pause areas on each floor where staff can refresh and engage.
Nedbank’s three other Green Star Rated buildings are Nedbank Sandton Phase II in Johannesburg, Nedbank Ridgeside in Durban, and Nedbank Menlyn Maine in Pretoria. Nedbank will be unveiling its fifth and sixth Green Star Rated buildings in Newtown by end of 2015.
