The double-skin facade acts as a thermal regulator and the white roof helps reduce heat islands. The building's energy efficiency means that there is a 40% reduction in water use and a 38% reduction in energy use.

The project included a plan for the management of residual materials, which helped divert 92% of construction residues from entering landfills.
