The design creates a striking façade where high quality metal panels contrast with simple black cladding. The surface reflects the sky and surrounding buildings, whilst the elevation detailing incorporates panels which match the window openings.

The new building is sensitive to its location within a conservation area while expressing a contemporary and individual character with a unique cladding and lighting solution for Spinningfields.

The building is secured with pad and beam foundations, steel frame and pre-cast concrete floors and stairs. The ground floor offers an entrance reception and meeting areas, whilst levels 1-4 provide office accommodation and the roof houses a terrace and screen plant enclosure.
