Award winning
Bel Air Mall

Bel Air Mall

Bel Air Mall Centre is a convenient community centre located in North Riding, Johannesburg. The Mall has something for everyone – from retail areas to food and restaurants and even a large gym.

From a structural point of view, there are several items of interest, including the 15m high RC Column structure in the middle of the mall – this is often used for the display of banners and advertising. The roof design incorporates a stylish multi-tiered design which is visible from afar and is a defining feature of the Mall. A relatively high, stylistically shaped brickwork façade greets the prospective shopper as they enter the mall’s front entrances and tension type canopies are included for covering the open deck areas on the First Floor. These open deck areas are supported by pinned architecturally styled castellated columns.

The mall includes an underground parking area as well as an above ground post-tensioned parking deck slab which is separated by an expansion joint from the coffer slab deck used inside the mall.
