AFROX DURBAN REGIONAL GAS FACTORY
The factory site formed part of Tongaat Hulett Eco-Development. close to Shaka International Airport. The admin, canteen and conference facilities enclose a reestablished dune forest that ecologically process the grey water on site, preparing it for industrial processes. The dune forest forms a natural environment that creates relief from the hardened industrial process. The factory sheds use Aramax sheeting that spans 15m. The sheds regulate the harsh sub-tropical climate and open up to the prevailing cool SE winds along with solar shelves and vertical poly-carbonate and metal tromb walls that vent under eaves for passive cooling.
