Cape Town Sustainable Building and Green Resources
Grey Water & Rain Water Harvesting
I recently had the good fortune of getting to know Water Rhapsody, a company who are leaders in grey water and rainwater harvesting systems in South Africa with over 16 years experience and over 3000 installations.
Sustainable Design and Architecture
In terms of architecture and design of course a high profile architect to speak to is Vernon Collis. I am finding it hard to track down his website or online contact details for you. I have his direct contact details, but haven't spoken to him yet to get permission to post them here. If you want to reach him, drop me a line and I'll pass on your details.
I am friends with Ansgar von Oertzen, an architect from Eco Design - Architects & Consultants, an architectural practice which specializes in ecological friendly green building and consulting. Established in 1998 by Andy Horn, the practice has been at the forefront of the green building movement in South Africa and has won a number of international awards in the field of sustainable design. It has been fascinating watching what Eco Design are doing in the sustainability industry, and their cob and straw bale designs are well worth investigating if this is what you are looking for.
