Equites Park Meadowview – Digistics

Equites Park Meadowview – Digistics


Digistics, a leading supply chain group in South Africa, is opening a new facility at Equites Property Fund’s Meadowview industrial park. Situated next to the N3 highway in Johannesburg, Meadowview can accommodate development opportunities ranging from 5,000 to 20,000 square meters.

Resource-efficient design and technologies will be incorporated into the Digistics’ warehouse to reduce its environmental impact. LED lighting, reflective paint, and solar photovoltaics will be installed to reduce the warehouse’s energy use, while auto shut-off faucets and water-efficient plumbing fixtures will be installed to reduce the warehouse’s water use. The resource efficiency of the warehouse is a manifestation of Digistics’ commitment to lower the carbon footprint of its operations.

Equites Property Fund, the developer of the industrial park, is committed to incorporating sustainable practices into its developments. Equites Property Fund has also EDGE-certified the Altron warehouse at Meadowview and the Premier Foods warehouse at its Lords View development.

Equites Park Meadowview – Digistics has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from GBCI.

Equites Park Meadowview – Altron

Equites Park Meadowview – Altron


Altron, a leading information and technology (ICT) company in South Africa, has opened a new facility at Equites Property Fund’s Meadowview industrial park. Situated next to the N3 highway in Johannesburg, Meadowview can accommodate development opportunities ranging from 5,000 to 20,000 square meters.

Resource-efficient design and technologies were incorporated into the warehouse for Altron to conserve natural resources. LED lighting and solar photovoltaics were installed to reduce the warehouse’s energy use, while dual-flush water closets and water-efficient faucets were installed to reduce the warehouse’s water use. The resource efficiency of the warehouse is a manifestation of Altron’s commitment to reduce the environmental impacts of its infrastructure.

Equites Property Fund, the developer of the industrial park, is committed to incorporating sustainable practices into its developments. Equites Property Fund has also EDGE-certified two warehouses at its Lords View development. Ecolution also performed EDGE Expert and EDGE Auditor services for this project.
