A charming building, with a not so charming (but fairly typical) 1960s extension at the back. Behind the 1960s block is a 1983 library designed by David Yandell, who was working for Bidwells at the time.

NIAB is concerned with seed testing, and as a result has extensive land behind. Once it was far removed from city life, but in time housing has spread all the way to its boundary and in future there will be housing on NIAB land itself, and beyond.
