A new home for PwC in KZN

Private Property South Africa

Professional services firm, PwC, has relocated to a new purpose-built building in the Ridgeside Office Park in La Lucia.

Kishore Kooverjee, PwC Durban partner in charge, says, “We are confident that our new office will provide an excellent platform from which to further enhance our presence in the KZN region and extend our profile in Durban and to better service our clients across the wider region.”

Innovative green technology has been implemented to reduce the new building’s carbon footprint to provide a healthier and more productive environment, and decrease the consumption of energy and other resources.

One of the highlights of this “building of the future” is a thermal storage cooling plant, which reduces electricity usage in peak demand periods. The system works by freezing ice in tanks at low-demand times when electricity is plentiful and much cheaper, and using the ice for cooling at peak times instead of running the chiller. This will result in significant cost savings as well as assisting the economy by reducing pressure on the supply grid.

The newly constructed 4,000m2 development by Hodari Properties Proprietary Limited is located in the Ridgeside Precinct 3 estate. It provides some of the most scenic views from Umhlanga to Durban City and the Bluff.
