The original stone and timber were left exposed with energy saving measures increased in other parts of the thermal envelope, to reduce the building's carbon footprint, whilst preserving the key attractive features. To ensure future commercial flexibility the structure was designed to allow installation of partition walls as required to suit changing brief without extensive alteration.
