140 West Street
Rubio Monocoat was applied on the interior wooden surfaces of 140 West Street in central Sandton, which consists of a 10-storey North Tower and 14-storey South Tower. The wooden surfaces included: Wall cladding, ceiling panelling, interior and exterior wooden furniture and built in cupboards.
The building, which received a 4-Star Green Star SA Office V1 Design certification, offers exclusive landscaped roof terraces on the 8th, 9th and 12th floors, from which to take in the remarkable, panoramic views across Johannesburg. The project offers a gym, state of the art auditorium, dedicated cyclist and motorcyclist bays, shower and changing room facilities to encourage users to commute by bicycle. The parking bays closest to the cores are dedicated to those who drive energy efficient cars. The use of tactile materials and the integration of planting and natural light throughout the building aim to give users the feeling of being close to nature.
"We recommend that Rubio Monocoat be specified on all our projects with 140 West being yet another success. Due to Rubio Monocoat's 0% VOC rating and Eurofin Certification we are confident that the brand fits in with our Green Building philosophy." - Damien Spagnuolo (Zenprop Development Manager)
