Project details

Designed by Fletcher Priest Architects, the new building provides contemporary open plan workspace over five floors. Along with a marketing suite, meeting rooms and larger conference rooms. Socialisation is encouraged through smaller breakout spaces, a café and an informal  garden terrace.
