The environment

THE RAISON D’ETRE OF ENSO IS SUSTAINABILITY. To that
end each and every process both in design, construction as well
as the operation of Enso will be carefully managed to the highest
standards. The existing on site building will not be demolished but
carefully deconstructed to ensure all waste and building materials
can be recycled, reused and re-imagined within the construction
value chain. This will significantly reduce the amount of waste
sent to local landfills and stimulate the thriving trade in recycled
building materials throughout the Cape metropole.

Building material selection will be carefully considered not only
to reduce the embodied energy of selected materials but also to
promote recycling and reduce harmful environmental emissions.
Adequate onsite separation of waste, together with private
partnerships within the waste recycling space will ensure the Enso
occupants will reduce and recycle as much waste as possible.
