Contractor Grinaker-LTA reports that its R119-million contract for the construction of Pepper Club - a new, 20-storey serviced apartment block on the corner of Cape Town’s Pepper, Loop and Long Streets - is well underway.
This contract forms part of an overall development project investment of R150 million.
A total of 233 apartments will be offered, ranging from studios to luxury duplex units and penthouses. To set Pepper Club apart from other residential apartment blocks, developers One Vision Investments have redefined the concept of apartment living by adding to Pepper Club’s offerings all the luxury amenities of a top hotel. “These include a fitness centre, laundry and cleaning services, swimming pool and sun-deck, private movie theatre, 24-hour security, undercover parking and a concierge to attend to residents’ every indulgent need,” explains Mark Belman, business development director at Grinaker-LTA Building Cape.
The contractor is undertaking the construction of the apartment block’s external shell, including a traditional concrete structure, external facades and external waterproofing, as well as the internal division walls, including door frames, plaster, floor screeds and the first fix of plumbing, drainage and electrical. The complete installation of the mechanical ventilation, sprinklers, fire protection, roof construction, lift installation, swimming pool, timber deck and the fire door installation will also be undertaken, while the finishes will be carried out by the client’s direct contractors.
Some 700 000 bricks will be used in the construction project, as well as 16 600 tons of concrete and 881 tons of reinforcing.
