No. 1 & 2 Silo

Construction firm Mace has handed over the No. 1 Silo project in Cape Town, South Africa, to the Victoria and Alfred (V&A) Waterfront.

Situated on a sea front location, No. 1 & 2 Silo is a 22,000m² mixed-use complex featuring office, residential, retail and leisure facilities.

Mace said the scheme is the first completed phase in the Silo Precinct.

The construction firm’s team oversaw the project from the initial feasibility, design and enabling-work stages through to construction.

The practical completion of the No. 1 Silo building marks the finish of a programme of works to preserve the waterfront’s key historical pieces.

Works also include excavating previously reclaimed land from the coastline and the maintenance of a 90-year old building in the development.

The No. 1 Silo building has secured a six-star Green rating from the Green Building Council for South Africa (GBCSA) while No. 2 Silo has received a four-star Green Star SA Multi Unit Residential v1 Design rating from the GBCSA.

No. 2 Silo features 31 apartments across seven levels with views over the harbour, sea, city and mountains.

Mace Sub-Saharan Africa director Nick Demain said the project was one of the most technically challenging and complex projects that the company has undertaken in the region.

"With around 22 million tourists visiting the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront each year, we are delighted to be a part of regenerating this area and delivering a project that will leave a legacy for the region," Demain said.
