Building work is being managed by Bovis Lend Lease.

The project will include of 7 km of hot-dipped galvanised tray and 5 km of lighting and multiple-compartment power trunking. A range of cable ladder has also been supplied. Legrand’s standard floor boxes were specially redesigned to include a reinforced flush floor unit that can accept specialist floor covering in the public gallery.
