Cape Town - Growthpoint Properties has launched a property portfolio in SA that is highly rated by both the SA Property Owners Association (SAPOA) and the Green Building Council SA (GBCSA).

The Thrive Portfolio combines quality and aesthetics with sustainability. It comprises 71 dual-rated office buildings nationwide, spanning more than 850 000m² of office space, and valued at R16.1bn. It is almost half of Growthpoint’s total office portfolio.

Platinum Thrive Portfolio buildings boast a SAPOA Premium- or A-grade rating, as well as 4-Star or higher GBCSA rating or an energy and water performance (EWP) certification.

Gold Thrive Portfolio buildings are SAPOA B-grade rated or higher, and have a GBCSA EWP certification or have received at least a 3-Star existing building performance (EBP) certification.

Thrive Portfolio buildings are in central locations and most of its buildings provide standby electricity and water. These supportive environments are designed to attract and retain the best talent, foster innovation and increase staff productivity to drive businesses forward.

“Sustainability has become paramount and office spaces are being recognised as the ideal locations for implementing sustainable solutions, largely due to the amount of time spent in these buildings," said Rudolf Pienaar, Growthpoint Properties office division director.

"Many clients who occupy our buildings are environmentally conscious, and constantly looking for the next innovation to help lessen their carbon footprints, while prioritising the health and well-being of their people. Our new Thrive Portfolio is an excellent answer for the needs of leading, innovative businesses.”
