NCS have delivered a flexible building centred around a stunning central atrium, with significant renewable energy provisions such as heat pumps, thermal solar panels and photovoltaic technology. NCS undertook a number of elements of work on a design and construction basis, including lift installation, renewable technology installation, temporary works, precast concrete and steel stairs.

Due to the location of the project, restrictive working areas and the adjacent main road, strict planning was necessitated to ensure the safety of the public and to cause minimum disruption to neighbouring businesses and the community.
