Within the design for a white concrete main structure with Arup as design engineers, ABT provided the structural design for two important components:

  • The building’s separate concrete roof, which completes its white form
  • three large windows, the largest being 20 by 14 metres!


A very light steel structure with large glass panels of fluted glass was designed for the windows.
