Project Detail:

This Project was awarded to Curvent International as a Design, Supply and Install project where we provided a full turnkey solution for the smoke extraction system and the basement Carbon Monoxide extraction systems.


The project was designed in conjunction with a team of engineers from Nako group (Mechanical Engineers) and Solution Station (Fire Engineers).


The waterway house Building consists of parking basements with retail shops on the ground floor as well as 3 levels of office space within two off separate buildings linked by a connecting bridge.


The basement extraction system was designed as a duel functioning system to both provide a smoke clearance system in the case of a fire as well as a mechanical extraction system coupled with a Carbon monoxide detection system for day to day car park ventilation.


On completion of the South office tower, the building is occupied by BAT (SA) and further tenant expected in the retail level in early 2017.
