Unlocking Sasol’s potential and building its future
During the 2000s, one of South Africa’s largest and most respected multinational brands, entered a period of accelerated business transformation. This transformation had, in turn, begun to place substantial pressure on existing facilities, as well as the Facilities Management teams. The Facilities Management teams were split across several geographic sites and as the business transformed, the corporate office portfolio expanded to accommodate these changes.
As Sasol’s strategic real estate advisory and implementation partner, Betapoint deployed a world-class, multi-disciplinary team to advise on all aspects of this high profile initiative. Betapoint led the development of the optimisation strategy, managed the transaction and acted as the project manager and Sasol’s tenant representative.
This included providing services from tenant oversight of the architecture, space planning and interior design through to the facilities management service model design and procurement of the service providers. Betapoint recently passed a significant milestone with the commencement of the relocation of 2,500 employees from 11 commercial properties spread across Johannesburg, into Sasol Place.
It was through the efforts and dedication of our team and our close partnership with Sasol that we could deliver a global headquarters that significantly optimises real estate costs, enhances Sasol’s brand and drives a high performance culture. In addition, the project was delivered under budget, on schedule and to the highest quality standards in the industry. Recently, Sasol Place was awarded the Best Corporate Office, Best Interiors and the prestigious Best Overall Project at the 2017 SAPOA Conference.
