Southern Sun OR Tambo Airport

Southern Sun OR Tambo International

The Southern Sun Hotel at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg needed a cladding specialist to revamp its exterior. The already existing fascia had become problematic due to its high maintenance costs, and so had to be replaced.

First African Holdings was contracted to design, manufacture and install new aluminum composite material (ACM) fascia for the hotel. The fascia was to cover 67m2 and would be manufactured out of Hulabond ACM to match the existing cladding on the rest of the building.
