Illovo Edge was designed by Bentel Associates International (BAI) and the development is demonstrating that the highest standards of architecture, design and construction are a pre-requisite for an iconic, sought after commercial property. Strategically situated in the upmarket and cosmopolitan suburb of Illovo in Johannesburg, the contemporary development was constructed within the exclusive Illovo Boulevard Precinct. The pedestrian-friendly precinct is one of the upmarket commercial areas in Gauteng and enjoys a convenient location situated within walking distance of the Gautrain Rosebank Station and the new Rapid Bus Transit route (BRT). The development at the corner of Harries and Fricker Roads is rapidly becoming the ultimate commercial address for both national and international leading companies.
BAI celebrates its 50th year of design excellence in 2010. As part of this celebration and to accommodate the growing space requirements of its Johannesburg offices, the company has relocated to Illovo Edge where it occupies one of the two buildings completed in Phase I, developed by Mont Blanc Properties. KKA were the consulting electrical engineers.
Regent were requested to develop special stainless steel “Wave” fittings on a galvanised steel pole. The galvanised steel pole was clad in a composite fibre cladding supplied by others.
Wide beam cast fittings were mounted on the columns of the ceilings. Cast fittings were chosen due to their extremely wide and uniform beam distribution.
Astra fittings were mounted high up on the external wall.
Siri fittings were mounted on special brackets. The Siri's are 600mm off the wall placed end to end over a 9m length to give a “smooth wash” onto a display wall.
