Since their appointment in early 2005 Ellis Williams have proved inspirational to work with. Their consistent ability to generate exciting yet workable ideas and the fact that ongoing consultation underlies the whole of their approach have been the basis of an excellent and rewarding working relationship. From the outset this combination has been important in producing a design which has been consistent in its vision but has been continually refined to incorporate the knowledge and experience of those who will work in it. The result is a building which we believe will be outstanding both in its design and its functionality.
