Betts Townsend is proud to be the principal agent and joint project manager,
together with Abacus Asset Management, for Baywest Mall. The 2 billion,
90,000m² mall will form the centrepiece of Baywest City – a massive new mixed
use development in Port Elizabeth. The entire precinct is being developed by
Billion Group and Abacus Asset Management in joint venture, and will create
over 6,000 permanent jobs in the area.
This is not the first project that Betts Townsend has worked on for the Billion
Group – the company carried out the project management for the massive
Hem-ingways Mall in East London several years ago, and brought the lagging
Mdant-sane City (between East London and King Williams Town) back on
Work on Baywest Mall has required an incredible degree of co-ordination between all members of the project team, as well as on site. This fits well with Betts
Townsend's ethos of taking a hands-on attitude and maintaining a cohesive
team approach.
The sheer size of the building and the various technical, logistical and environmental aspects have all combined to make this a particularly challenging
project. Nevertheless, the team has kept up with the construction programme
and com-pletion is on track for March this year.
