PPC RAILWAY SUNWAY CITY RAILWAY

Associated Consultants (Ascon) Africa was established and registered in Zimbabwe in 1959, as a consulting engineering firm. It is
well known and associated with most of the industrial and infrastructure development in the country from the early 60s. It became
a market leader for offering a one-stop shop for consultancy services in specialised industries including railways, agro – industries,
materials handling, roads and bridges.
In 2006, the Scott Wilson Group listed on the London Stock exchange and this necessitated group organizational changes.
In Zimbabwe, the company transformed itself in 2008, to facilitate localisation and renamed Ascon Africa. Ascon Africa has
re-established in the regional countries and now trades in South Africa and Mozambique. Ascon Africa has completed the EPC
contract for design and construction of the PPC Msasa Railway siding.

ARCHITECTURE INDUSTRIAL PROFILE Overview of PPC

For well over a century, PPC has tracked the growth and development of
South Africa and Zimbabwe, producing cement for many iconic landmarks,
including the Union Buildings, Gariep Dam and Van Staden’s River Bridge,
Kariba Dam, the Gautrain, new Cape Town Stadium, Medupi power station
and much of southern Africa’s infrastructure.
With the acquisition of Safika Cement and Pronto Readymix (including Ulula

beyond the group to the broader industry.
As a leader in this industry, PPC has actively invested in technology to
reduce air emissions, minimise waste production, recycle and recover raw
materials, enhance energy efficiency and conserve natural resources, while
producing a reliable and affordable supply of building materials to support the
economies of countries where they operate. PPC is a truly African success
story – a focused business that reflects the strengths of its people, products

TRENDING DESIGN CEMENT DESIGNS
TAKING OVER IN 2017?

Anumber of globally accepted design and interior trends
have been decided. Pantone declared this a green year
(specifically yellow green shades) and the pallets for say,
dark interior colours is already seeing designers subscribing
to dark hues of leafy colours. It doesn’t stray far from the new
need to get away from time spent on computers and phones – escapism,
with a greater desire to create spaces without digital interference. With
the need for calm and serenity it’s not surprising we are looking to bring
the outside inwards. We’ll see that in the use of those greens and other
earthy colours like hazelnut and shades like lapis blue.
We, however are looking at two and a half other trends that we are
particularly interested in. We are talking about the return of bricks as
a design and aesthetic point of focus, whether used inside and left
exposed or as breeze blocks framing a veranda or outdoor terrace.
The other, is concrete. Although still famously used as a requirement
in Zimbabwean design, concrete hasn’t been as popular globally with
new materials making headlines. But not only is concrete back as an
architectural preference, concrete has found new life in interior design
objects. And they are beautiful to look at and add so much to the overall
feel of a room. Hard objects have a certain charm to them. Check out our
article on House by the Sea’s Stone creations. Which brings us squarely
to the last trend, which is more passive (hence calling it half a trend),
and is looking at the resurgence of having interior objects feel like art in
themselves. Form and function.

PPC IMAGINARIUM
& DESIGN INNOVATION

Every year the PPC Imaginarium Awards in South Africa gives emerging
artists the scope to showcase their talent and creative thinking. Concrete
is the inspiration, stimulus, and primary medium for revolutionary design
thinking and artistry across 6 creative disciplines.

PPC Imaginarium Awards has become a celebrated part of the PPC
Calendar and is steadily growing in popularity year-on-year as a
platform for artists to become recognised, not only by their peers, but
also by the wider artistic and business community.

The Awards encompass: Industrial Design, Jewellery Design, Film,
Sculpture, Architecture and Fashion. All the contestants receive
extensive media coverage during the award judging and exhibition.
The winner of the awards takes home R100 000 in cash, in addition
each of the category winners and runners up receive cash prizes
as well. It’s a showcase of art and design innovation, where the
beauty and versatility of concrete is celebrated, and emerging
talent is recognised and rewarded

WHAT ARE THE IMAGINARIUM AWARDS?

In 2014, PPC extended its existing sculpture, fine art, and industrial
design competition (The Young Concrete Sculptor Awards) to
include the creative disciplines of jewellery design, fashion design,
and film. Thus, the Imaginarium Awards was created - an ambitious
modern art and design competition aimed at providing emerging
artists and designers with the opportunity to showcase their talents
through the medium of concrete.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE IMAGINARIUM AWARDS

PPC believes that investing in innovation and creativity not only creates
jobs, it makes for more sustainable communities, better businesses,
and pushes our economy to grow in an increasingly competitive
global worldBy providing support and promoting innovative thinking,
the Imaginarium Awards aims to establish young emerging artists
and designers as leaders in their respective industries. Through the
convergence of innovation, design, and fine art, the Imaginarium
hopes to create a space for young creatives to engage with key social
issues faced by people and communities globally.

We would love to be a part of this endeavour in Zimbabwe. Concrete
made objects are in this year after all. Watch this space?

DESIGN INSIGHTS MINIMALISM

IN THE PURSUIT of a clutter-free, sleek and clean living, minimalism was born. It’s described as a style (in the
visual arts and in music) that uses pared-down design elements. It derives itself from the reductive elements of
modernism. In design and architecture, a subject is simply reduced to its necessary elements.

Minimalist architecture has designers focusing on two perfect planes, elegant lighting, and the void spaces left by the
removal of three-dimensional shapes in an architectural design. Minimalism in architecture was apparently influenced
by Japanese traditional design and architecture. It is often characterized by meticulous organising of basic elements
such as lines and planes. Less is more right? Of cause another emerging fact is that home design seems larger and
more expensive (in building Materials) in the pursuit of attractive minimalistic designs, which isn’t minimalist in itself.
Because, minimalism, is more like a way of thinking, not just a simple trend. Others extend it beyond design, it’s a
way of managing their lives. It’s a way of simplifying things.

Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-
1969) adopted the “less is more” motto to
describe his aesthetic. His tactic was of
organising the necessary components of a
building to create an impression of extreme
simplicity – he enlisted every element and
detail to serve multiple visual and functional
purposes. The idea in minimalism is, after
all, that all parts, details and joinery are
reduced to a state where no one can remove
anything further to improve the design.

Minimalist architects look beyond the
physical aspects of a building, but deeper
into the spiritual dimension and the
invisible, paying attention to the details,
people, space, nature and materials. You
see a lot of natural light, sky, earth and air
being introduced into the thought process
and the harmony that the building and the
site will have. It’s no wonder minimalism
is an on-going trend, as it goes along with
new and current thought on environmental
awareness and making design something
that isn’t just aesthetically pleasing, but that
makes you feel. Natural light is uplifting and
clean design elements and light walls and
large windows all help to bring about the full
effect. Minimalist furniture and unobtrusive
low profile interior elements add to this.

within natural granite. Two retaining walls create a small horizon
pool, and at the lower level visually integrates the dam reservoir
with the lower levels of the house. All elements are orientated to
create physical adjacencies and visual privacy. The house sits on
levels ranging between 112 and 116 metres above sea level on
the edge of a cliff. There is another 50 metre drop to the reservoir.

The project had to deal with issues of hyper-inflation and lack of
available material. All materials were sourced locally, except for
specialist items such as the glass and the roof waterproofing. The
granite used to clad the two anchor blocks were the ‘crusts’ cut-off
that came from the granite excavation. The dynamite drill holes
are still apparent and tie the building to the area of excavation.
Using the granite from the site also insured that the building
blended harmoniously with its surroundings.

ARCHITECTURE RESIDENTIAL PROFILE

Reinforced concrete is used to form a
series of cantilevers and ground structures.
The canopy roofs are steel framed.
The building is conceived as a series of
accommodation pavilions sitting beneath
large roof canopies. The space between the
pavilions and under the canopies creates
a further outdoor room, sheltered from the
sun and from the heavy seasonal rains. The
main spaces benefit in having views of the
lake, dam and countryside
