Scaffolding was removed from the front of the building in November, revealing the finished brickwork and windows. At the end of January, the front entrance was transformed after the large glass panels and doorway were lifted and secured carefully into place by crane.
Now that the majority of the glass has been installed, work on the interiors, including mechanical and electrical second fixes, plastering and painting can proceed. Internal doors have now also been delivered and are waiting to be fitted.
The eco-friendly green and brown roofs, together with the photovoltaic panels and solar-thermal panel for generating hot water have now been installed. A monitor in the entrance will show the power generated through the day for heat and water.
Completion is expected in late April and plans for landscaping and access are underway.
