It is 220,000 square feet in size and has 11 floors with a capacity for 3,000 people, and has taken two years, four months to build.
It also has an accessible roof terrace and a ‘Get Ready’ room for staff to use for nights out, plus dedicated, secure cycle storage with staff showers and lockers.
The ducts carrying this fresh air down through the building are so large you could drive a Range Rover through them. During the winter the building will be heated by boilers with a combined output equal to 1,000 kettles.
