Grant Thornton House… the first peg in the ground
It is with great excitement that the Johannesburg office announces its new home to be – Grant
Thornton House in Wanderers Office Park, Illovo.
The partners and directors have purchased a building which will house the entire Grant Thornton family, GTC and more. This is a milestone in the history of the firm, being the first time that the partners and directors will become the proud owners of its premises.
The move is a giant step in the merger journal between Grant Thornton Johannesburg and the former PKF Johannesburg. Finally all +470 staff will be working and having fun together in its own state-of-the-art environment.
Some salient information at this early stage is:
Address: Corlett Drive, Illovo
Current Building name: The Willows
Size: 10 800m2 and 3 stories high, two lifts
Look and feel: distinctly Grant Thornton – lots of white space, strong purple accents and lots of growing greenery.
Estimated move-in date: early 2015
The new facilities will enhance the daily lives of the people and will facilitate increased levels of productivity, ensuring that Grant Thornton achieves its stated ambitions of being an employer of choice and providing distinctive client service.
