The first floor, loft and roof structure is formed with a structural steel frame. External elevations are finished in brick and stonework, with a clay tile roof.

Specialist sound equipment was subcontracted on this project, special attention was focused on quality in general and in particular to the acoustic details and specifications required to deliver a high-quality music School environment.
