Oryx Energies is one of the largest and longest-established independent providers of oil and gas products and services in Africa and in South Africa. They recently bought BP’s extensive LPG activities in the country and are aiming to increase market share, as part of their continent-wide promotion of this cleaner, more affordable and ecological energy alternative to firewood, charcoal and kerosene.
The Tower Bridge team were chosen to refurbish their Johannesburg offices located in the heart of Bryanston’s corporate office Parkland.
The Tower Bridge design and construction teams worked closely with the Swiss owned company, to ensure the international and corporate standards were maintained across both the design and the fit-out phases. A crisp white and neutral grey palette came to life with vibrant red accents in wall features, furniture pieces and Perspex pot plant containers. A red beaded Oryx stands in the reception area, and the South African themed boardrooms “Mandela,” “Bubesi” and “Springbok” are all decorated by local artists.
A fresh, modern office space equipped with a light and airy canteen, flexible training facilities, hot desking areas for international visitors and an access-controlled finance department, act as a comfortable and beautiful place in which the Oryx Energies employees love to work.
The Oryx Energies project was led by Tower Bridge’s Debbie Swart from the sales team, Project Manager Etienne Botha and Designer Shannon Becker.
