GREEN VENTURE

The Green Venture is a multi facetted business which explores living and building sustainably in South Africa. Our focus is green property development, the encouragement of green architecture and design, and environmentally conscious building products and methods.

Green development is OUR generations’ goal, and through our various sustainable building projects we’d like to achieve this very concept. Our first project being Rozelle Village in Wellington, where we will introduce brand housing set in a security village.

Architecture is the root of building! Instilling the knowledge and ideas of environmentally friendly design in young architects will ensure a brighter healthier future in the building industry. We intend to do so by allowing architects to take part in ORACOM, a competition which will put the architectural profession to the test in sustainable design.

What is an environmentally conscious building if the products being utilized are not? That is why we will also be talking about sustainable building products and methods which can be found in our Green Group section.
