The project comprised the Category A refurbishment of an existing commercial office building constructed in the early 1990s.
The refurbishment project commenced March 2015 and was completed in June 2016.
The building consisted of a ground floor and three upper floors and roof in an L-shaped configuration. The Existing elevations
of the building consist of vertical concrete cast columns which are expressed and chamfered. In between the columns,
concrete framed soffits protrude to form a canopy at first and second floors and plinth at first floor level. These framed details
are filled with facing brickwork.
The combination of columns and soffits form a regular grid on each elevation. Framed glazing in between the structural grid
pattern at regular spacings further develops the elevational details. The corner of the building is framed by symmetrical
monolith brick towers rising from the ground floor to the roof. At ground floor the main entrance is recessed and is covered by
the second floor soffit. At plant level louvers form part of the elevation facing Greyfriars Road but is mainly covered by a
mansard metal roof.
The structural form of the building is steel framed with concrete floors cast on a metal deck system.
