Metrum was appointed to project manage the development of the Auto & General Park in Johannesburg.
The client required a 24,000 m² office building with substantial parking, in which to consolidate their current business units previously housed in six separate buildings across Johannesburg and Pretoria. The brief included efficient movement with little reliance on elevators to move its 2,500 staff members across the various levels of the building.
The project completed on time and within budget. The new building comprises a main core area and two wings. One wing has a basement with two office floors and the other has two basements with two office floors.
Each of the four office blocks has two levels of open plan office space, effectively creating eight separate office spaces of approximately 2,600 m² each, with the possibility of an additional eight separate office spaces when required.
