A Definite Swing Towards Green

Wild Waves

Something I felt was quite pleasing to observe while working on the project descriptions for the Excellence in Construction Awards, was the amount of consideration that is being given to the environment. Several of the projects entered had adapted green innovation, and some contractors it seems went to great measures to preserve the environment. A great example of this is the WBHO entry 'Wild Coast Sun Waterpark', also known as Wild Waves.

The client Sun International, was particular about the surrounding environment and had a full time environmentalist that ensured no building or dumping of materials took place in the forest areas as well as on the primary dunes.

Before the start of the project all protected species were removed and stored off site.  These trees and plants were then re-planted once the slides and structural work had been completed.

Well done to WBHO and Sun International!
