ASA  Listed Building 2007

Designed in the 1920s by architect James Miller, whose work was influenced by American 
neoclassical ommercial rchitecture, his 
building with an A-Listed facade has been 
transformed into a nine-storey office complex. Along with the elegant, classical exterior, the existing lavishly detailed ground-floor banking hall has been retained,. New floors have been added above and on the top floor a terrace has been created and a penthouse has been built using structural glass to provide panoramic views across the city.

One of the biggest challenges of the project was fitting a new steel frame within the retained facades. The new building also has intelligent high-speed passenger lifts, and underground parking, facilities made possible by a unique hoist which combines a car lift with an integral turntable.
