PCE was responsible for the offsite engineered structural design and build of the superstructure frame and façade package. Craig Billyeald, PCE’s Senior Project Manager responsible has said:
"Being associated with a project shortlisted for the Stirling Prize feels great, it is a fantastic reward for all of the PCE Team members that worked so diligently to help turn Grafton’s architectural aspirations into reality using an Offsite Engineered Design for Manufacture and Assembly approach. All of the companies involved with this project worked so well together to achieve the common aim of building excellence."
