Area:

Pharmacy Direct, a member of the AfroCentric Group, is a nationwide courier pharmacy who proudly serves as the pharmacy partner to numerous medical schemes, as well as several public sector and private patients, dispensing and delivering prescribed chronic medication to patients nationally and internationally.  As courier pharmacy, Pharmacy Direct actively supports the strategic objective of accessible healthcare to all. As a dynamic, fast growing Company Pharmacy Direct embarked on the development of a third site in 2017 and as a result an existing building in Louwlardia was procured. A multi-disciplinary team, headed by Andrew Wood from Inclusive Design Architects as Principle Architect was compiled to ensure timeous completion of the building within the tight deadline requirements.  In addition, the team was also tasked by the Group CEO of AfroCentric to effect extensive value engineering as the initial scope of work expanded due to the magnitude of challenges that transpired during the construction period.  Contributing factors to the expanding scope of work were legislative and regulatory demands in order for Pharmacy Direct to obtain a pharmacy license.

The team started fit-for-purpose construction on the new building at 21 Watershed Close, Louwlardia Ext. 38, Centurion in the last week of January 2018.  The building was earmarked to be the new premises for the dispensing of medication to patients on the CCMDD programme as well as the disaster recovery site for the AfroCentric Group.  The building was also earmarked to house other subsidiaries in the AfroCentric Group. The critical objective of the building process was to have the site operational by the 22nd of April 2018, in anticipation of the new CCMDD tender that was to be awarded and a possible increased scope of services. The effective period for the completion of the building was 11 weeks for renovations to the anticipated expenditure of R41M.  The team not only achieved the tight deadline requirements, but also successfully managed to absorb the significantly expanded scope of work within the approved budget amount.  The project is to date hailed as a success story within the AfroCentric Group.

I would highly recommend the use of the Inclusive Design Architects (IDA) for your building or design project. My wife and I have worked with Andrew and his team for the last year on a new custom home project and are extremely satisfied with their work. This is the first home construction project for us and Inclusive Design Architects (IDA) has turned a challenging process into very enjoyable experience. The key to their service is “one-stop” shopping for architectural design, interior design and builder selection. It is so much easier and cost effective, to have one team handle these critical steps of the process. Inclusive Design Architects (IDA) came highly recommended and they have met our expectations.

IDA was appointed to assist with an extensive turnkey project to the value of approximately R 45 000 000.
