The CR Swart Building in Bloemfontein houses offices of Free State Provincial Administration and PACOFS.

A revolving restaurant on the 26th floor offers diners a 360-degree view of the city of Bloemfontein.

The Government occupies two buildings, one either side of the road. The one building is 23 storey's tall and the other is 11 storey's tall.

The buildings recently underwent a total revamp, this included CCTV, ACCESS CONTROL and PUBLIC ADDRESS/EVAC.


A single VX-2000 system designed in a such a way that each building could page or make announcements into its own tower as well as make emergency announcements into the "sister" tower.

A tunnel connecting the two buildings and running beneath the road also had to have speakers which could be used by either building's remote microphone.

By designing the single VX system we were able to save costs and make use of the system's matrix for routing of audio signals.

A VX-2000 System manager with amplifiers, remote microphones. SANS-60849 compliance was supplied in terms of the head end equipment.
