Cummins Africa Middle East’s new Southern
Africa Regional Head Office in the Waterfall Logistics Precinct, part of the
new Power Hub, has won the South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA) Property
Development Award for Innovative Excellence 2019 in the Industrial Developments

The building is a JV with
Zenprop Property Holdings. It was designed by Empowered Spaces Architects.

Guided by Cummins
international design standards, while incorporating local adaptations, the
building allows for optimal northern exposure for commercial use towards the
N1/Allandale interchange. Sustainable design principles and spatial
arrangements were further integrated to allow operational cost containment and
enhanced employee productivity.

The architectural layout
has been optimally and uniquely designed, adopting the Cummins Smart Office
Concept (CSO) to create a space that enhances internal collaboration,
encourages engagement and thereby accelerates a solution-orientated approach.

The Power Hub strategically
consolidates and solidifies various business premises in support of the
company’s position as Africa’s preferred power solutions provider. The 15,355 m2
facility, holding a substantial R350 million investment, houses the Cummins
Southern Africa Regional Headquarters, the Master Rebuild Centre (MRC), Africa
Learning Centre and Gauteng Operations.

“It is always an honour for
one of our developments to be recognised by this prestigious organisation. At
Waterfall, we continuously strive to maintain the very best standards in the
development and design of our buildings. This is the fifth consecutive year
that an Attacq development wins the coveted award. We are happy to have our
efforts recognised by our industry peers,“ said Giles Pendleton, Chief
Development Officer at Attacq Ltd., the developer of Waterfall City and
Waterfall Logistics Hub.

The SAPOA Awards for
Innovative Excellence is an annual event that recognises significant
contributions made through innovation and excellence within the property
sector. Although functional aesthetic appeal is a pivotal requirement for
entrants, the holistic approach of the awards evaluates multiple design,
innovation and efficiency elements, such as social transformation, overall
impact, environmentally sustainable design, design industry and community
perception.  Interiors that ensure the
local commercial real estate sector is on par with international standards are
also a consideration.
