The building is a joint venture with property developer Zenprop Property Holdings. It was designed by Empowered Spaces Architects, a leading architecture and design practice recognised internationally for delivering contemporary, dynamic and relevant architectural services to a broad range of clients.

Guided by Cummins international design standards, while incorporating local adaptations, the building allows for optimal northern exposure for commercial use towards the N1/Allandale interchange. Sustainable design principles and spatial arrangements were further integrated to allow operational cost containment and enhanced employee productivity.

The architectural layout has been optimally and uniquely designed, adopting the Cummins Smart Office Concept (CSO) to create a space that enhances internal collaboration, encourages engagement and thereby accelerates a solution-orientated approach.

The Power Hub strategically consolidates and solidifies various business premises in support of the company’s position as Africa’s preferred power solutions provider. The 15 355 m2 facility, holding a substantial R350 million investment, houses the Cummins Southern Africa Regional Headquarters, the Master Rebuild Centre (MRC), Africa Learning Centre and Gauteng Operations.

“It is always an honour for one of our developments to be recognised by this prestigious organisation. At Waterfall, we continuously strive to maintain the very best standards in the development and design of our buildings. This is the fifth consecutive year that an Attacq development wins the coveted award. We are happy to have our efforts recognised by our industry peers,“ said Giles Pendleton, Chief Development Officer at Attacq Ltd., the developer of Waterfall City and Waterfall Logistics Hub.

The SAPOA Awards for Innovative Excellence is an annual event that recognises significant contributions made through innovation and excellence within the property sector. Although functional aesthetic appeal is a pivotal requirement for entrants, the holistic approach of the awards evaluates multiple design, innovation and efficiency elements, such as social transformation, overall impact, environmentally sustainable design, design industry and community perception.  Interiors that ensure the local commercial real estate sector is on par with international standards are also a consideration.
