A regional switch centre was built on the site to accommodate only the technical equipment, at the original introduction of cellular network telephones. Some years later due to staff growth, and the necessity to upgrade the internal and external transmission rooms, these needs necessitated providing addition accommodation in the form of an additional floor of offices.

The expression of lightness for the new offices was achieved by placing the glass line on the outside of the concrete up stand of the existing roof and column structure. The roof structure over sails the glazing line and is supported off extended steel columns rising from the ground level.
