Environmental Planning Projects

NWA has over 25 years experience in Southern Africa and beyond. Presented here is a select list of our projects; some are illustrated on separate pages in the submenus. 

Angwa City Centre, Harare: Preparation of EIA for twenty-storey building in the CBD. The building is a luxury development incorporating shopping malls, covered parking and an office tower. The complex and environmentally configured building will contribute well to the city and create jobs during construction. This EIA is a first in Harare in line with new planning requirements now being conformed to.

CABS Project: 45 S Machel Avenue, Harare: Similar to the Angwa City Centre project, the EIA was for another high quality building in Harare’s financial district. Use of materials and a different environmental concept achieved energy efficiency and made a statement of value to the skyline. The building includes covered parking, banking halls and an office tower.

Alaska Dolomite EIA, Chinhoyi: Preparation of detailed EIA including rehabilitation techniques for an abandoned quarry. Proposals featured ongoing rehabilitation in the new quarry.
