ATTERBURY FORGES AHEAD WITH KING AIR INDUSTRIA
King Air Industria, the first business park of its kind in the Cape Town International Airport area with 24/7 access-controlled security, is developing well and preparing for the opening and trading of its first facilities. Infrastructure is nearing completion for the first two phases of the project, which is a development by Atterbury and Old Mutual Properties.
Arno du Plessis, Atterbury’s development manager for King Air Industria, says that the imminent completion of infrastructure for its first phases has put the project on the map as a strategic business site. The focus on security features is necessary for high performance businesses and is multi-faceted – the fully fenced park is surrounded by a ClearVu boundary fence with an early detection perimeter monitoring system. Its manned gatehouse provides controlled access using licence plate and drivers licence scanning protocols with a long-range vehicle identification system to allow for quick access. The advanced security set-up incorporates a sophisticated camera system and AI software for identification and recognition.
King Air’s infrastructure also includes centralised fire pumps and tanks, saving development and maintenance costs for users. It also benefits from ample electricity supply to power high energy users such as cold storage facilities, data centres and light manufacturing.
The development’s easy access to Cape Town International Airport cargo terminals is a major advantage.
