The overall concept was to establish a building form which minimizes the scale of the building relative to the surrounding developments, which are predominantly residential. The building is of concrete construction and is clad in terracotta cladding with large areas of high performance glazing. The roof is of steel construction with expressed steel supports in certain areas. Landscaping, water features and hard surface finishes combine to unify the building with the site and its surroundings.
This building is an example of the wealth of experience held by the staff at Elliott Group, our staff understand the build, design and the high standard of work that a building of this architecture requires. This building won a National Award from Gypsum Industries for the innovative use of plasterboard in ceiling design.
