Bigen Africa, a leading infrastructure development company with a strong presence in southern Africa and a growing African footprint, has utilised innovative conservation principles to create the country's first 'green' taxi rank at Wallacedene in Cape Town. As provider of the civil engineering, project management, electrical and structural services on this R25 million project, Bigen Africa has seen to it that the Wallacedene taxi rank is largely self-sufficient in terms of energy and water use. This facility not only offers 5 000 commuters and 50 taxi drivers the amenities they need to refresh and regroup between trips every day, but also delivers cost efficiencies based on 'green' principles.
