The facility comprises 18,000sqm providing civic office facilities, local service centres, a public library, business centre and public open space. The design integrates with an overall masterplan for Woolwich responding to the context, scale and fabric of the local environment, promoting social interaction with community and other stake holder bodies. The scheme will embrace the concept of the Government’s ‘better ways of working’ initiative to deliver a building which provides modern, flexible and efficient workspace, and inspire collaborative working and enhanced productivity.

A notable feature is the long 100m double skin (thermal flue) glass facade.
