Architects specify Revelstone’s Jura paver range for bridge park office precinct


Cape-based CMA member, Revelstone, has supplied its Jura paving range for the exterior surfaces at Bridge Park, a new R450m office precinct development situated at Century City in Cape Town. This prestigious project involves the construction of two ‘green’ buildings with a combined space offering of 18 049m².

Revelstone director, Alex Cyprianos, says over 5 000m² Jura straight edge precast concrete pavers (680 x 440 x 45mm) were supplied for paving the perimeter walkways as well as the upper level terraces.

“The charcoal, grey and carbon coloured pavers compliment the dark glass, steel and concrete facades of the two buildings. In addition, Revelstone’s suite of complementary paving products which included Jura edging, special demarcation pavers, Devon steps, perforated and etched straight edge pavers, as well as steel re-enforced pavers for stormwater drainage, were installed at Bridge Park.

Cyprianos said the Jura straight edge pavers were specified by the architects, DHK Architects, for three essential reasons: “Their straight edges make them ideal for the straight jointing as specified by the architects; safety – the pavers come with a user friendly non-slip finish; ease of maintenance – steel re- enforced pavers which can be easily lifted for cleaning purposes, were specified for the stormwater channels.”

Commenting further Cyprianos said the Jura range forms part of Revelstone’s Engineered product range, first launched in September 2014.

“Our Engineered product range offers architects and developers tailor-made products which harmonise with and offset some of the unique design properties found in today’s architecture. We kicked off the range with our Jura pavers and tiles. These were followed by parapet capping, pool and pond edging, Devon steps, kerbing and the new perforated drainage paver.

The professional team on the Bridge Park project comprised: Principal agent – DHK Architects; quantity surveyor – AECOM; consulting structural engineers – Aurecon Group; consulting electrical and mechanical engineers, Aurecon Group; contracts manager – Murray & Roberts Construction and paving contractor, Highland Paving.

Bridge Park is being jointly developed by Growthpoint Properties and the Rabie Property Group as Phase 1 of a Century City expansion programme on Ratanga Road in the Bridgeways precinct. It has been registered for a Green Star SA Office Design v1 rating with the Green Building Council of South Africa. There are three other ‘green’ office blocks at the Bridgeways Precinct and when Bridge Park is completed Bridgeways will be the first fully ‘green’ precinct in South Africa.
