Located in the town center, the HQ Bedfordview office complex sets a new standard for office space in South Africa, with a contemporary, minimalist design and sustainable building features. Built by Farquharson Construction, the complex consists of three individual twin blocks, each four stories tall, surrounded by a landscaped park and common areas, and includes underground parking for over 300 cars. Each building faces predominantly north or south to minimize heat from the east and west and optimize the use of natural light. HQ Bedfordview has offices ranging in size from 140 m² to 8,000 m².
The combination of PENETRON ADMIX and PENEBAR SW-55 waterstop (to seal the construction joints) provided the optimal solution for the HQ Bedfordview project. PENETRON ADMIX was mixed into over 3,000 m3 (3,900 yds3) of concrete during batching by Afrisam, the ready-mix supplier. The treated concrete waterproofs and protects all the exposed and below-grade structures: the ground floor slabs, roof slabs, elevator shafts, and elevator pits in the underground parking garage floors.
