LHC undertook a great deal of consultation with staff and stakeholders, which informed the internal space planning and choice of furniture and desking.

Works include removal of GRP spandrel panels and replacement with smooth faced cementitious fibre boards in a range of grey colours. The windows have been given a striking uplift following a refresh, by the application of coloured perforated film.
