Contemporary Architecture

The design of the building which has been created by architects Frank Shaw Associates will 'set the standard' for future building on the park providing exciting and contemporary architecture, with a double height glazed reception and a striking brise soleil canopy over the entrance.

The building will be clad with a mix of brick and two types of rainscreen cladding and there will be high quality landscaping with an avenue of pear trees on the north side of the building.

The sustainable elements of the design comprise photovoltaic panels on the roof to provide a source of renewable energy for the centre together with bicycle racks, showers and changing rooms for those wishing to cycle to work.
