The amazing volume generated inside the building by the entrance lobbies and the internal and the external atria, allows the penetration and the diffusion of natural daylight through the floors, to create a sustainable and desirable working place.
The fully glazed main atrium, facing the Plaza, consists of impressive structural glazed units (2800 wide x 3900 high, weighing 600 kg each) climbing up to the ETFE atrium roof, supported by a 3-D steel structural framework.
Main entrances, giving personnel access to the building, to both the Queensway and Metro Boulevard Elevations, consist of bolted glass systems with vertical laminated glass fins with bolt fixings to support the glass screen. The three staircases are glazed with complimentary fritted structural silicone glazed system to maintain a consistent theme. The glass balustrades to the link bridges connect the working areas either side of the atrium void, thus allowing a better use of the common spaces.
