The Centre is in the form of two L-shaped buildings in a ‘69’ layout with a central courtyard. One building is two stories high with glass curtain walling. The other is four stories with solid, Thin-Jointed aircrete walls using Celcon Plus blocks 200mm thick.

The two buildings take up the whole of the site; there is no landscaping. Half the ground floor is inhabited; the other half is car parking.
