Overcoming contamination from the sites former use as a corporation yard and addressing multiple interface issues with surrounding buildings. The completed scheme has delivered a contemporary pair of buildings which employ a mixture of traditional masonry and more industrial Metal roofing to respect the sites previous working heritage.
