The architecturally pleasing infill extension was constructed between existing brick buildings and stands out as a feature on the North Elevation. The first floor was constructed of reinforced concrete and a steel frame with zinc cladding and extensive glazing produced a ‘Cubist’ construction. The external fire escape was clad in special perforated panels which again added to the aesthetics of the elevation.
