Construction Overview

The two and three storey composite steel frame allows all floors to be utilised for either office or laboratory use through innovative use of removable structural panels and flexible service routing both internally and externally and has a screened flexible plant area at roof level. The building cleverly positioned adjacent to the natural tree roundel to maximise the benefits of solar shading and the brick, glazed and timber elevational treatment is positioned to be sympathetic to the natural setting.
