Earthworks begin on Sandton’s new flagship Katherine & West sectional title offices

Earthworks are under way on the new R650m ‘AAA’ grade, ‘Katherine & West’ office development by Barrow Properties, within metres of the Sandton Gautrain station and next to the Radisson Blu Hotel.


The project will take 26 months to complete. The works involve an 18m deep excavation, 4500sqm of gunnite, 112 lateral support piles and the removal of 80 000 cubic metres of earth.


Esorfranki Geotechnical has been awarded the lateral support contract, Protech has the earthworks contract as a sub-contractor to Esor and structural engineers are Pure Consulting. Barrow Construction will be the main contractor.


There will be six levels of basement parking, providing a parking ratio of four bays per 100sqm of office space. The project involves some 19 000sqm of office space within a fully secured, access controlled site with ‘good address’ appeal, and exceptional exposure.


Moreover, the building, designed by TPSP Architects, will be energy efficient with sophisticated cooling systems and double glazing.


Further attributes for the development include state-of-the-art security, a European styled sidewalk café on the ground floor and full utility back up via generators and water tanks.


Nearly half the Sectional Title offices in the development have already sold to a mix of professional firms and private investors, many of whom are repeat investors in previous Barrow Properties’ Sectional Title office developments.
