The project comprises two self-contained, eight-floor office buildings set over a shared two-level basement car park. The buildings have U-shaped floor plans, with centrally positioned, double-height entrance lobbies facing the common landscaped zone between the two buildings. In house amenities such as restaurants, retail units and gym, will provide a convenient service for the everyday needs of office staff and local residents while creating an active frontage and a more vibrant streetscape.

Cundall provided building services engineering for this new office park. The challenge was to adapt the base -built design to a future potential fit out for an IT developer with specific requests such as increased power supply per workstation, additional data centre power supply and specific extract ventilation on all IT rooms for inert gas usage.

To respond to specific design requests, Horia Iliescu said "The building was designed to meet the latest standards for preventing viruses and bacteria spreading such as a ventilation system that introduces 100% fresh and, air handling units with internal rounded edges to prevent the build-up of dust and which are easier to clean – used in hospitals and medical facilities."
