Sasol Administration Building, South Africa

The new corporate headquarters of Sasol, a global oil and chemicals company, offer 10 upper and 7 basement floors with a total floor space and circulation area of 200,000 m².
The slabs were formed with the help of the SKYDECK system in rapid cycle sequences.
In spite of the complex building geometry, work could be carried out to a large extent with system formwork.
On the building corners, individually planned slab tables suplemented the cantilevered-mounted SKYDECK edge solution.
The administration building is characterized by obliquely-arranged building structure and cantilevered slabs.
The new corporate headquarters of Sasol have 10 upper floors and 7 basement floors.
An extra-ordinary glass facade enwraps the new corporate headquarters of Sasol.
