CASE STUDIES

See how we’ve made a significant difference to enhancing the sustainability of our clients’ property portfolios.

We have a proven track record of successful implementation initiatives.

For example solar installations and lighting retrofits, which are saving our clients money and lowering their carbon footprints dramatically. We have also been involved in numerous Green Star SA ratings and conducted many energy simulations and benchmarking. Here are a few projects where we have made a significant difference to enhance sustainability of a property portfolio.

Cape Quarter Sustainable Transformation
Imbue Sustainability implemented a R20-million green building refurbishment of Tower Property Fund’s Cape Quarter retail lifestyle village in Cape Town. The project included a 210kWp rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) installation, as well as installation of heat pumps for energy efficient water heating, and basement fan carbon dioxide control.
V&A Waterfront Victoria Wharf Green Star
We helped the Vic Wharf achieve a 5-Star Green Star SA Existing Building Performance rating from the GBCSA – the highest rating for any existing shopping centre in South Africa. Excellent recycling initiatives, lots of natural light, efficient water and energy management, green cleaning practices and even a wildlife management programme make this a truly exceptional centre.
Junxion Mall Solar Photovoltaic
Viewed from above it’s clear to see what a powerhouse the new Junxion mall in Philippi is. As the consultants on the project, Imbue Sustainability ensured the 1.2MW solar PV installation for the Devmark Property Group was designed to the highest standards. Our ongoing monitoring of the system will ensure it significantly lowers operating costs, mitigates against rising electricity costs and lowers the mall’s carbon footprint.
