Green Building Council South Africa has awarded the Motswere building in Botswana a 5-Star Green Star Africa – Office Design v1.1 rating.
The building marks the council’s first green star-rated building in Botswana.
Based in the Prime Plaza II in Gaborone’s central business district, it is the first of four commercial buildings that will make up Prime Plaza II once built.
The 2 780 m2 Motswere building’s name derives from the Leadwood Combretum trees that inhabit this part of the country. It comprises three A-grade office levels, supporting facilities and two basement parking levels.
The building is the first of PrimeTime’s large properties to achieve third-party green certification, which has provided the company with a great competitive advantage, says PrimeTime as
