The building's interior primarily consists of open plan space on 14 floors and can accommodate up to 4,000 staff. The building has 30,439m2 of total space.
The Co-operative group HQ offers large column free floors supported by a steel frame and three internal concrete floors.
The building’s exterior has a double skin facÌ§ade with a buffer zone provided between its inner windows and outer glazed panels. This allows for greater control of heating and ventilation. Aesthetically it accentuates the curved skin and in particular the dramatically curved corners.
The building is one of the largest in Europe to have a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ distinction. In December 2011 the building achieved the highest recorded BREEAM score, making it one of the most sustainable buildings in the world.
