Category: Energy Project of the Year
Entrant: FNB Fairland & LTM Energy
Project: GBCSA 4 star rating for Existing Building: FNB Fairland

The project has won the following awards:

  • The international Commercial Property Award for the best office development in Europe and Africa
  • The overall "Award for Innovative Excellence in Property Development" awarded by SAPOA
  • The office category in the SAPOA “Awards for Innovative Excellence in Property Development”

Fairland was the biggest office rated on this first ever existing pilot programme held in South Africa. Now, amongst other energy projects, we have been appointed to install the 1800KWs car port PV, the biggest in Africa, to migrate from its current 4 star rating to a 5 star in 2016.

It showed a Total Energy Reduction (metered) of 6 201 484 kWh/p.a. The Fairland office development is unique in the South African office development landscape and is set to be held up as a new standard for unique, functional, environmentally responsible and aesthetically pleasing buildings. This success story can be replicated by LDM Energy across the many corporate clients around the country which would ensure a huge positive impact to South Africa’s carbon footprint reductions let alone the ramifications globally.
