Client
V&A Waterfront, B.O.E.
Location
V&A Waterfront, Cape Town
Completion Date
November 2001
Project Value
R250 million
Description
This project was actually three developments in one: an office block, retail space, and a ferry terminal for the Robben Island Museum.

Design and engineering challenges were numerous, including the preservation of historical monuments (the Clock Tower and Chavonne Battery), and a portion of the building being constructed over water.

Interesting from our perspective, was that numerous clients were involved, as well as more than one firm of quantity surveyors.
