Environmental Sustainability Vital for Development Success
"Developers are required to ensure that the environmental opportunities and constraints of a chosen site are considered, thus informing the proposed development footprint and top structure." says Environmental Director, Jenny Barnard. A detailed wetland delineation and functional assessment study to inform the layout at the earliest feasibility stage is essential. This enables the Environmental Impact Analysis and Town Planning Approval process to proceed timeously. Most importantly, this also under-pins the development Feasibility Study.
SiVEST has incorporated the ISO 14000 environmental policies and procedures into Environmental Management Plans for project implementation, thus assisting Contractors compliance on construction sites.
Some current and completed commissions by SiVEST include the Hawaan Forest, Sibaya Casino, Umhlanga Forest Estate, ILala Ridge and Izinga Ridge North of Durban, and Newmarket Racecourse, Ngala Lodge and Heartland Properties development programme in Gauteng.
