Saint-Gobain's Innovative Solutions Transform The Leonardo in Sandton
At 234 meters high, The Leonardo is an architectural landmark that has redefined the skyline, becoming the highest building in Africa, and introducing a new concept of luxury living to its residents. This landmark in architecture and engineering is not merely symbolic of a new era of African development, but stands as a reminder of how innovative and flexible approaches can realise unexpected heights of achievement. The building footprint; as well as its height and the lack of available on-site storage, made the use of additional cranes prohibitive. At times Gyproc materials were manually carried up scaffold staircases – a task that is difficult for more traditional materials.
