Request for sponsorship – GBCSA offices: Johannesburg

The GBCSA will be relocating its Gauteng staff to new office premises on 1st December 2017. We are in the final stages of lease negotiations on a space in Rosebank, Johannesburg. To this end, the GBCSA is calling for offers of sponsorship, from product and service providers in the property industry to supply – on a sponsored basis – of products and/or services within the following categories:

  1. Carpets & flooring coverings
  2. Wall paints & coverings
  3. Meeting room & office furniture
  4. Lighting & lighting control systems
  5. Kitchen appliances & cabinetry
  6. HVAC equipment
  7.  Water efficient fixtures, fittings & systems 
  8. Renewable energy technologies
  9. Office Video Conference equipment
  10. Interior design and project management service to design and implement the fit-out
  11. Green Star SA Accredited Professional
  12. Other items not identified in the above list but incorporated directly or by reference to the attached design brief.

The GBCSA seeks to maximise this opportunity to green its space and operations and intends to pursue a Green Star SA Interiors certification for the fit-out. The GBCSA will facilitate reciprocal and appropriate media, marketing and exposure opportunities for all selected office fit-out sponsors. This is a great opportunity for property and construction sector stakeholders to reinforce and demonstrate their company’s commitment to the sustainable building movement, and align themselves with the GBCSA.

Interested parties will be subject to the following selection criteria:

• Must provide a green product that will ultimately meet the requirements of the brief and the targeted Green Star SA – Interiors rating
• Be able to provide, deliver, install and/or make provision for installation in Johannesburg, South Africa
• Be willing to enter into a sponsor-benefit* agreement with the GBCSA
