At its highest point the structure is in excess of 75m high, officially making it Coventry City’s new tallest building.

PRP were responsible for the successful design and delivery of the piled foundations and coordination of the steel frame superstructure. PRP also designed the below ground drainage and highways works on this constrained and busy inner city site.
