BLUETEK GENERATORS was founded in 2007 by Mr Clive Chiwadzimba and has rapidly grown to become one of the leading suppliers of generators, water pumps and solar systems in Zimbabwe. Their head office, showroom and workshop is situated at 285 Samora Machel Avenue, Eastlea where they first started out, although they have recently made some major extensions to their offices. They also have a shop at 93 Harare Street in the city centre as well as distributors in other major centres. After renting the property at 285 Samora Machel for a number of years they bought the property in 2015 and then last year – in September 2019 – they started on some extensions to the existing house which were completed in December the same year. The property was originally a residential house, but like many of the properties in this area of Eastlea it had been converted to commercial use.
Because the company was growing so fast they needed to extend their showroom to display their growing range of products. The extension was originally conceived of as a single storey addition to their existing showroom but the plan soon evolved to become a double storey with the showroom downstairs and offices upstairs for management and administration. This helped to free up more space in the existing house for their stock and spares and their workshops. The design for the extension was drawn up by local company KP and Sons Consultancy who then adapted the design to include the first floor. Adding the concrete slab for the top floor meant that two additional pillars had to be included downstairs for support. KP and Sons Consultancy worked together with local company Light Structural Engineers to reinforce the foundations, install the supporting pillars and cast the first floor concrete slab. Large glass and aluminium windows and doors and white ceramic tiled floors help to make the showroom look bright and attractive. The first floor also has white ceramic floor tiles and generous windows. The design includes a small balcony leading off from Mr Chiwadzimba’s office with a view out over Samora Machel Avenue. Linking the ground floor showroom and the first floor offices is a steel staircase with teak treads and aluminium hand rails. OCA Glass Concepts and Stainless Steel manufactured and installed the staircase while Alumin Structures supplied the frames and glass for windows and doors. Apart from the offices there are also restrooms and a small kitchenette upstairs so it’s a very comfortable place to work.
