A stunning copper and glass wrapping around the 1935 brick front façade of the building (the rest of the building was demolished). The building was originally used for water softening and the conversion was done to create a headquarters for the company because of the move out of their previous one on Rustat Road. The function of the original building meant that there is a large water pipe running near the building and the company uses this, via heat exchange, as a way of cooling the office (this was proposed by engineers from Max Fordham).
