A range of ASB sections is available in each of two serial sizes of 280 and 300 mm depth. Within this range, there are five ASBs with relatively thin webs and five ASB(FE) (fire engineered) sections with relatively thick webs (equal to or thicker than the flanges). The ASB(FE) sections provide a fire resistance of 60 minutes without additional protection in this form of construction for normal office loading. 9. Edge beams can be in the form of RHS Slimflor beams, which comprise a rectangular rolled hollow section (RHS) with a flange plate welded underneath, ASBs or downstand beams.

A slim, curved form was desired, like a vase or a sculpture. An exterior cladding material is zinc, where the dark colour forms an outer framing for the transparent building. The building is given a sharp silhouette as a contrast to the flat surrounding countryside. In the higher part, the vertical structure is exposed with columns indented into the room. In the lower part, the steel structure is fully exposed and thus the exterior of the building reflects the interior.
