Project Name: Construction of the New Namibia Ports Authority Corporate Head offices
Client: Namibia Ports Authority
Location: Walvis Bay, Namibia
Project Cost: N$ 200 million
The corporate head office for the prominent state owned enterprise came as a result in growing demands for more office space with the exponential growth of staff numbers within the Namibian Ports Authority. The main focus in the design was to reinforce and enhance the client's corporate identity whilst integrating the three main functions of the brief which was the multi purpose Convention Centre , corporate offices and the commercial and recreational component whilst retaining spatial privacy and inter relationships within these spaces. Materials selected for the office building were guided predominately by the desire for durability and the need to reduce maintenance whilst accommodating the harsh weather condition of the coastal town of Walvis bay.
